Hi everyone,

I recently started at a company with 3 Exchange 2000 servers. I have now installed 3 new 2003 servers and migrated all user mailboxes - everythign is working fine.

Now it's time to remove the old servers from the organisation and I have a couple of questions.

I read that I need to determine the roles of each server before doing anything (smtp router, bridgehead etc) - how do I do this?

Also, how do I determine which was the first server in the organisation?

So far all I have done is dealt with the public folders (they are now located on the new servers

thanks!
