configure smtp front end server exchange 2003
Posted on 2009-05-06
we are currently running 2 exchange 2003 exchsvrA and exchsvrB backend servers and a f/e server exchfe1to handle OWA.
the exchange servers are all part of the same admin group so nothing needs to be set up for internal mail. there is a smtp connectorconfigured to filter all mail for internet to a smarthost and exchsvrA is set as the bridgehead.
I have to create another F/e server to Only handle SMTP traffic. what would be the best way to handle this?
I can keep the same SMTP connector just change the bridgehead to point to the new F/E server correct ?
I would configure the default smtp virtual server on the f/e not to relay, and what specifics should i set ?
finally I only want this to handle SMTP traffic so what do i need to do, to disable the server from hadling OWA or any other traffic ? What services should i disable ?
thank you in advance.
