Exchange 2003 to 2010 routing connector

We have an exchange 2003 server called say EX2003, with a test exchange 2010 called say TEST2010 all works fine. I installed another exchange2010 server called say LIVE2010 moved a third of the mailboxes everything is working fine. A connector was automatically created when the first exchange server was installed.
EX2003 > TEST2010
TEST2010 > EX2003

I need to remove the test server TEST2010 do I need to create a second connector or can I just add the new server to the original connector in both directions
EX2003 > TEST2010 & LIVE2010
TEST2010 & LIVE2010 > EX2003

Another issue is with the Outlook client autodiscover is switching to a mailbox on LIVE2010 but reports the “connection status” is to TEST2010, will the connector issue resolve this, if I manually create a profile to LIVE2010 connection status report is correct.

TEST2010 has a DiscoverySearchMailbox{D919BA05-46A6-415f-80AD-7E09334BB852} can this be moved to LIVE2010 which has no such mailbox

Thanks in Advance
Colin

since the test server will be created i advise you to create another connector, but you could add the new one to the existing connector both will give you the same result

New-RoutingGroupConnector -Name "Interop RGC" -SourceTransportServers "Live2010.domain.com" -TargetTransportServers "ex2003.domain.com" -Bidirectional $true

No the connector will not resolve this you will need to change the profile manually for users that are already on live2010. to fix this you need to run
set-mailboxdatabase DBName -rpcclientaccessserver Live2010.domain.com

yes you will need to move these


get-mailbox -arbitration | new-moverequest -targetdatabase dbname

Thanks for quick response Akhter

I will run the new routing group command tonight

Get-MailboxDatabase "Mailbox Database" | fl RpcClientAccessserver
returns the correct server when run on TEST2010 & LIVE2010

I have moved the arbitration mailbox with no issues

Yes that is correct returns live2010.co.uk on both servers

in that case newly moved users from 2003 should pickup the new name directly

People you are moving from test2010 to live2010 will need to be reconfigured manually however
