Exchange 2010 Transition Connector issues

rslive used Ask the Experts™

I have installed Exchange 2010, I can receive/send mail between the test mailboxes in 2010 but no connectivity between 2003 as this is a transition.

In the management shell I enter Get-RoutingGroupConnector | ft -autosize and nothing shows in the results, it did when I 1st installed the server.

I have followed a very good manual from Paul Cunningham, Exchange Server Pro, ++ to this guide.

I guess im after any guidance or trouble shooting tips as most things look to be working ok.

check the default smtp virtual server settings on your 2003 server
it is most likely using a smart host which is breaking the routing


I did have a smart host and then removed it as i read it can cause issues.

Im sure it has something to do with the EX2010 box as when I try and get the routing info it turns a blank.  I may have to reset the routing groups up again?


Meant to add tha the link you sent is what I used to remove the smart host and setup a SMTP connector, it's a good document thanks for that.
no, once you remove it from the virtual server you just need to restart the smtp service
