I installed a 2nd Exchange Server in our environment, then moved all the mail Boxes to it.  Now I want to remove the old exchange server, but when it is disconnected from the network, no useres can connect to the new exchange server.  Once the old server is plugged back in, everything works fine  Can some one point me in the right direction on how to make the 2nd exchange server become the main Exchange server?  The problem is that the old server is becoming un-reliable.
