Hi Guys,

I am preparing a brand new Exchange 2010 server and planning to migrate the mailboxes from the currently active Exchage 2003 server. Both, old and new servers, are joined to the same domain and are on the same subnet. the new server is currently running MS Server 2008 R2. The migration is going to run for up to 21 days.

My questions:

1) Should the new Exchage 2010 server be a domain controller?

2) How do i set up a bridgehead for Exchange migration (in the above scenario)?

3) How do i make sure the Autodiscover functionality points all current outlook clients to the new server

any other suggestions?

Thank you in advance,

M

In addition to question 1, the new exchage server will not be a primary domain controller, nor will it host AD.

About question 2, you must to create a routing group between 2003-2010 architecture during migration. Before removing Exchange 2003, change inbound email to use Exchange 2010 and then, remove Exchange 2003 and his routings groups.
