If the original server is still online, and the mailboxes have been moved to the new server, the clients will automatically switch to the new name.

If the problem is that you have changed the name of the Exchange server, that's problematic and there is quite a bit of work to be done. Could you tell us more about your situation?

Because of too much corrupted DB I mounted a new server and copy directly EDB and STM file in the new one. Old server is still on but DB are unmounted.

Maybe beacuse all DB are still in old server explain why the clients are not switch automatically to new server. Is it possible?

How can I remove all DB from old server if they are unmounted?

Finally as I said: because all DB are still in old server explain why the clients are not switch automatically to new server.

To get rid of old unmounted DB on old server, I had to delete them directly from ADSIEDIT.


Thanks
