Exchange Routing Master

Posted on 2010-11-18
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I migrated from exchange 2003 to 2010 and successfuly removed the 2003 server, however i may have forgotten to assign a new routing master and i believe the information is in the Active Directory.
How do i cange the first administrative group from the old server (which is still the Primary domain controller) to the new server which is exchange 2010.
Tha managment console best practices has two errors showing it cannot connect to port 691 and port 25 on the routing group master. Now this server no longer has exchange on it as it was removed and deleted.(error'd when uninstalling so forcefully deleted).

do you have any 2003 exchange servers remaining? since you didn't uninstall there are AD objects still in existence
open adsiedit and browse to
configuration, services, microsoft exchange, exch org name, administrative groups, first administrative group, servers

if the old server is still listed there you will need to remove it

also browse down to
configuration, services, microsoft exchange, exch org name, administrative groups, first administrative group, routing groups, first routing group, connector

remove any old connectors

if there are no other servers or routing groups run the following
Get-RoutingGroupConnector | Remove-RoutingGroupConnector

I had earlier on removed the routing connector and installed it on the new server so that part was fine.
However the old server did exist under the first administrative group and i removed it.
I run exchange best practices and it found that as an error but i tolok of that notification..
I tested send and recieve with email and it seems to be fine!

So far so good.
