Head office (HO):
Windows 2003 DC with DNS and Exchange 2003 standard on the same box (dc-ex).
Site replication: HO-A, HO-B
Site A: Windows 2003 DC with DNS (dc-a)
Site B: Windows 2003 Dc with DNS (dc-b)
Goal: separate Exchange 2003 and dc role s on dc-ex and minimize re-configuration on user end - Outlook configuration.
The above link shows the only way to separate it is to install a new Exchange server, migrate mailboxes over, remove Exchange from dc-ex.
The above method will end up with a new Exchange 2003 with different name, which requires reconfigure all Outlook.
Q#1. Which server does Outlook point to when the old Exchange and new one co-exist?
Q#2. Any quick way to reconfigure Outlook to point to the new server?
