I am in the process of doing my first Exchange migration. My query is in relation to moving the inbound SMTP and also the default SMTP virtual server name. I am following Simons very useful guide: http://www.amset.info/exchange/migration.asp
The setup here is we have a PPOE DSL broadband connection for our mail. Our router WAN address is 83.XX.XX.47 and then the current old mail server has 2 NIC's, one with LAN IP and then one with 83.XX.XX.48 connected to the DSL router.
So, when it comes time for me to have the mail delivered straight to my new server is it as straight forward as giving the second NIC in my new server the same IP address (83.XX.XX.48) and just plugging that into the router? Will that work?
Also, the internet name, just looking for clarification on this also. At the moment this is 'oldservername.domainname.
com', So, on the new server the FQDN is currently 'newservername.domainname.
com'. Does this need to be changed?
Thanks in advance..
