Exchange 2003 - Routing Group Master

I have exchange 2000 and 2003 running in same organisation.

Exchange 2003 was installed in seperate Admin group but i have not yet moved this server to its newly created routing group so it is still listed in the previous Admin group's routing group, its own routing group is empty.

Can i just point my local bridgehead server to exchange 2003 on SMTP connector listed under previous Admin group even though exchange 2003 exists on different Admin Group? OR is it neccessary that local bridgehead server should be on the same Admin group and routing group in order to work properly? Please clarify.


Thanks

You can point at the server where it is currently.
An Admin group can contain many routing groups and the converse is true too. A routing group can contain servers from many admin groups

ok, does it require restart exchange servers after changing local bridgehead?

No it will update the routing itself

should i first make bridgehead server RG master or it does not matter?

Commented:
It doesn't matter, the routing group master just tells the others the link/connector states and works out the routing table
