I want to know how is the best approach to remove old Exchange 2003 SErver, i have already moved all users to Exchange 2010, i stopped and disabled exchange services since las friday until today to be sure there is not any dependency of email related to Exchange 2003, all has been working well these days, so im ready to kill old Exchnge 2003.
If i try to unistall it, i got errors related to mailboxes existing on server, Recipient Update services and routing connector group.
Mailboxes. Im unable to purge mailboxes moved to 2010, i got "The operation cannot be performed because this mailbox was already reconnected to and existing user" . Im sure there is no users working on Exchange 2003, because all services has been stopped for 5 days, obviously any users woul have reported email issues.
RUS. There are RUS services related with this server. Do i have to "move" it to Ecxhange 2010, Is it really relevant
About routing group, exists a routing group where this server is the only membes, as master obvoiusly, so there is no way to chage it..... the same question, is it relevant
I have used ASDI editor on other installation, could be using ASDI the best way to "clean" exchange organization.... i think removing (uninstalling) exchange 2003 could be a very big effort for nothing
I appreciate your opinions
The currente exchange 2003 server will be shut down after process being completed. It is trash
