I am preparing to decommission Exchange 2000. I unplugged the Exchange 2000 from the network just to make sure I am not missing anything.
When I check the mail queue on Exchange 2007 it shows a request from Exchange 2007 to the old mail server (exchange 2000)
This is the request to oldservername-IS@domain.org the requests are for backfill, status, and structure.
I removed all references of the old mail server from the Public folder database.
I am not sure why it is sending these requests.
I want to decommission the old server but now I have these requests and I am wondering why.
If anyone can help me understand or point me to eliminate this before taking the old one off.
Thank for your help.
