    1. Go into ESM (Exchange System Manager).
    2. Right click on the top-level node (org) and select properties.
    3. In the dialog box, check "Display routing groups" and "Display administrative groups" (if they are not already checked).
    4. If they were not already checked, you will be prompted that you have to restart ESM for the settings to take affect. Do so.
    5. Click on Administrative Groups.
    6. Click on First Administrative Group (or whatever you called it).
    7. Click on Routing Groups.
    8. Click on First Routing Group (or whatever you called it).
    9. Click on Members.
    10. The new machine will be listed (and the old one will not). Right click on the new machine and set it to be "master".
    11. Restart the Exchange services on the new machine".

    Firstly, thanks for moving this from the incorrect forum - alias99.


    I went through the procedure and did not see any members at all - so, unable to select any machine as master.  As a matter of fact, "Display administrative groups" was greyed out.....makes me wonder if its a permissions issue.

    Issue was forwarded to our regional support team; apparently this function is above what the organizational unit can correct or impact.

    Albeit this did not correct my issue, it was the same solution given by internal regional support; so far to correct this issue points to the lack of permissions.
