How to move CAS and HUB role after install Exchange 2010

Posted on 2011-10-17

I've just recently taken over an newly installed Exchange 2010 box with only 5 users on it.   Now we want to move all our user over to 2010 but first I need to move the CAS and HUB over to another server.  Is there any documentation on how to do this?

    First of all install these new roles on other server,
    move SSL cert and make sure that everything is working and then uninstall the roles from mailbox server.

    Check this.

    you need to install new server with CAS/HUB role after installing it move service to new server CAS/HUB and uninstalled the CAS/HUB role from old server.

    Exchange9 :- The link provided by is about to recover a server from AD but if our server goes down/dead etc. In that case we can recover server from AD. But if we uninstalls roles from AD i think then they will not be recoverable. But here is the Scenario to move only CAS/HUB and mailbox needs to remian on same server. So I think better way is to deploy new CAS/HUB and after configured them remove roles from old server. Your comment is welcome

    Which would be better moving the CAS/HUB or the mailbox server?  The current server does have a certificate installed and wouldn't that break when we move the CAS/HUB to new hardware? To make that work it would need to be the same NETBIOS name right?  Doesn't it make sense to move the mailbox role to another server?  Again, I've never done this before so I don't know how difficult it is to do in 2010.

    don't worry about certificate if you are not able to more the certificate after moving the cas /hub server then you can revoke the old certificate then generate new CSR from  new server and reissue your certificate from SSL authority.
