How to properly remove Exchange 2003 Server when original network has changed.
Posted on 2011-03-09
We have an exchange 2003 server which was shutdown abruptly and the network that the server resided on was removed.
The server has been shipped to a new location with a different network but we need to reuse the hardware for something else.
How do I go about properly decommissioning the server after the network has changed?
I can get the original network emulated but will have access to one other domain, or does the decomissioning proccess require that all AG's be accessible?
I was thinking if the emulated network is brought back up, but has connection to one network that is visible to the rest of the networks, maybe it will communicate the "removal" of the EX2003 server to the other AG's.
