We recently installed Excahnge 2003 in addition to our existing Exchange 2000 into same organization but in seperate Administrative Group. We have moved all the mailboxes, offline address book and public folders from exchange 2000 to exchange 2003.
However smtp outbound connector is still in exchange 2000 Admin group and both servers are in same routing group which is under exchange 2000 Admin group, i have not moved exchange 2003 server into its own routing group as master.
So now i need to create new SMTP connector into exchange 2003 Admin group and use exchange 2003 as bridgehead server, and delete old smtp connector. My question is what else is required to accomplish this task and do i also need to move exchange 2003 into its own Admin group as well where i will be creating new connector? what else i should be considering? thanks
