Exchange 2003 & 2010 routing group connector
Posted on 2011-03-21
I have 1 exchange 2003 server and after installing 2010 I notice the following
Routing group from EXCH 2003 EMS shows:
2k3 connector folder shows a connector pointed to our smarthost.
2k10 connector folder is emtpy
So no routing connectors between 2k3 to 2010 or 2010 to 2k3
Based on this I'm assuming users with mailboxes on the 2k3 won't be able to send email to users with mailboxes on 2010. The question is do I create the connector in exchange 2010 using the New-RoutingGroupConnector?
And if so do I need to do it twice? Meaning:
New-RoutingGroupConnector -Name "2010-2003" -SourceTransportServers "2010server.example.com" -TargetTransportServers "2003.example.com" -Cost 1 -Bidirectional $false -PublicFolderReferralsEnabled $true
New-RoutingGroupConnector -Name "2010-2003" -SourceTransportServers "2003server.example.com" -TargetTransportServers "2010.example.com" -Cost 1 -Bidirectional $false -PublicFolderReferralsEnabled $true
In 2010 I see 1 send connector by default. It's pointed to our smart host with no source address. I was inform that I will need to put in another send connector. Should this send connector be to the 2k3 box or the our Smarthost?
