Hi all,

ive moved all our mailboxes and public folder database across from the old 2010 server to the new 2010 server, now both servers are currently CAS and as a test i disconnected the network cable from the old 2010 and email stopped working until i plugged back in

if i uninstall on the old server will it remove it from the emc of the new and will everything work or are there additional steps to take before i do this?

    just make sure that you are publishing SMTP,web services to the new Exchange 2010 also ensure that the send connector has only the new exchange 2010 server as the sender server.

    then on the databases properties ensure that the client settings is pointing to the new public folders on the new server

    and don't forget to move the OAB generation server to the new one
