Exchange 2010 and Exchange 2003 Co-Existance Connectors
Posted on 2011-03-01
After some advise on what will happen to the existing Exchange 2003 connectors once we introduce an Exchange 2010 into the Domain (we will be running in co-existance for a while.)
Currently we have are a child domain (across 2 sites) with exchange 2003 at each site.
We have a routing group between them and one site has an SMTP connector to a notes server in our parent domain.
We are in the process of migrating from notes\exch2003 to 2010. They have introduced a test 2010 server but it is not live (the notes server is still the main email server), their schema and domain has been prepped.
I know Exchange 2010 will want to be in charge of everything and want to create a connector between itself and the first exch2003 server. What will happen to the existing routing groups and smtp connector. I did attend an exchange 2010 course but the instructor gave a non-committal answer - and contradicted herself but basically said the SMTP connect from the exch2003 svr would not work
Anyone have any practical experience?
Thanks in Advance
