External Outlook clients and Exchange 2007 migration.
Posted on 2007-10-19
Exchange 2003 to 2007 migration
Exchange 2003 SP2 server is a DC and is running RPC/HTTP Proxy
Exchange 2007 server will be a stand alone running RPC/HTTP Proxy and Outlook Anywhere enabled
I've layed out all the steps for migrating however I wanted to confirm that when I enable Outlook Anywhere and RPC/HTTP Proxy on the new Exchange 2007 server that my external Outlook clients will automatically be redirected to the new server once their mailboxes have been moved. I know that this is easy for clients using a direct connection to the server but will this be turnkey for clients that rely on RPC/HTTP to access Exchange from outside the network. Basiclly, there's just a firewall with port 80 and 443 open to Exchange. I know that I will need to redirect the open ports to the new Exchange box at some point in the process. Also, I have a public SSL certificate on the Exchange 2003 server that is being used for OWA and RPC/HTTPS connections. Can I move that certificate over to the new server?
