what happens if i forget to run setup /preparelegacyexchangepermissions

I followed PeteNwtLive http://www.petenetlive.com/KB/Article/0000234.htm and there is no mention of setup /prep and I did not run these steps. Can I run them after the fact? Can I uninstall 2010 and start over? What do I do now? I migrated one user and tested. I can receive but not send in Exchange 2010.

Thanks,
Chris

The exchange setup should run this command for you if you didn't.

This wouldn't prevent mailflow though.  Did you select the Exchange 2003 server during installation?  There would have been an option to specify which 2003 server is used as a bridge head?

From the Exchange Management Shell run: Get-RoutingGroupConnector | fl

Post the results.

Also, check your Default SMTP Virtual Server against my guide here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_3044-Exchange-Server-Mail-Flow.html

I was hoping that was the case. I did select the 2003 server during installation.

Here is the result.

Email from Ex2010 arrives when  I switch my IP addresses back so that Ex2003 is Internet facing. But, If Ex2010 is Internet facing it can receive but not send.

Fill in the form and get your FREE NFR key NOW!

Veeam is happy to provide a FREE NFR server license to certified engineers, trainers, and bloggers.  It allows for the non‑production use of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows. This license is valid for five workstations and two servers.

 
Glen KnightCommented:
what do you mean internet facing?

Are both servers on the same subnet?

Can you explain the setup a bit more please?

cj1301Author Commented:
Internet facing as in mail.x.com is routed to external mx through the firewall. I change the internal IP address of Exchange 2010 to be the address of the Exchange 2003 server so that mail.x.com is now the OWA of Exchange 2010. Exchange 2003's IP address is change to an internal IP that is routed to Legacy.x.com from my DNS host.

see section on configuring legacy host names.

Glen KnightCommented:
OK, now that makes sense.

the lagacy host names have nothing at all to do with mailflow.

Have you checked the default SMTP virtual server as per my article?

cj1301Author Commented:
Amy I using the default SMTP virtual server on ex2003 or 2010? No changes to 2003 and 2010 is configured to use DNS and not a smart host. Since the problem is outbound mail flow from ex2010 I don't think the problem is with the second half of your article but I will check that.

cj1301Author Commented:
I see that TLS is for both in and outbound email. sorry about my last comment.

Glen KnightCommented:
so the virtual server is not using a smarthost or different port or TLS?
This is not the SMTP Connector or Send Connector it is the Default SMTP Virtual Server on the 2003 server.

cj1301Author Commented:
No smarthost. I am using port 25 and TLS is unchecked.
