Exchange 2010 - CAS and DNS entry in coexistence with 2003

Posted on 2011-03-14
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
In theory, if CAS somehow doesn't work during the install from 2003 to 2010, can I just repoint the DNS entry back to my legacy 2003 Front End?  Will that work or does the install of CAS change more than I'm taking into account?

It will work no issues here. As long as you dont have mailboxes on 2010 you canjust change the dns settings and you are done

So what does the CAS server do to the Exchange 2003 environment or AD when it installs?  Anything?  Or does it just setup a "connector" to talk to the 2003 Front-End?

It doesnt do anything to make it not work, it does register itself in AD but it doesnt affect this part
