The title pretty much says it all. Our front end exchange server is pretty much on its last legs. We are going to replace it. What is the best and safest way to do that? I read a few articles about using the disaster recovery switch for exchange, but it looks like that is used for recovering mail. All that I am worried about losing with this server are the two SMTP virtual servers and maybe the settings in IIS.
So again, to minimize data loss and email downtime, what is the best way to go about doing this?
