Hi,
I have a 2003/2010 migration.  All of the public folders and mailboxex have been moved, RUS has been re-homed.  There are no connectors between the servers and mail is working fine.  I have a few questions before I uninstall the 2003 server.  First, under the first routing group the old server shows up as the master, the new server does not show up.  Under exchange routing group the new server shows up as master, the old server does not show up.  Is this proper?  Should I delete the old server from the first routing group?

Turn the old server off for a couple of days to confirm everything still works, if it all does then turn the old server back on, leave it for an hour to talk to the domain & Exchange then run the Exchange Uninstall and it should remove the server from Exchange and the Routing Group

Hi,
Thanks for the info.  I just uninstalled 2003 but got the error: a problem has been encountered in the microsoft exchange messaging and collaboration services setup component canceling setup.
I then deleted the server from the server container in Exchange 2003 server object  and ran BPA on the new server, so far everything looks good.  There were a few services left on the old server - information store, mta stacks, exchange management.  I disabled them.  I will let the server run for a day or so and see if anything pops up.
