Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2003 Routing Group Setup
Posted on 2012-09-05
At Site 1, I have a 2010 Exchange server (S1A) and Exchange 2003(S1B) and at Site 2 I have Exchange 2003(S2A).
Site 1 and 2 are connected by a VPN, in different States, and both Sites are part of the same domain.
At moment I have a tangled mess of RG definitions and some external Emails are getting stuck in wrong queue (S1B). I want to fix this problem and remove Exchange server 2003 (S1B).
So I have will only have 2010 (S1A) at site 1 and 2003 (S2A) at Site 2.
Here is how RG’s are configured now:
Site 1 Definitions
Exchange Routing Group (DWBGZMFD01QNBJR): (SMTP too)
S1A to S1B (Site 1 2010 to 2003)
S1B to S2A (Site 1 to Site 2 connector between 2003 servers)
S1A to S1B (Site 1 2010 to 2003, connector back to 2010)
OutMail (SMTP connector outgoing mail ..blocked queue)
Site 2 definitions
S1B to S2A (Site 1 to Site 2 connector back between 2003 servers)
Get-RoutingGroupConnector results show:
Name Source Target
S1B to S2A RG1 RG2
S1B to S2A RG2 RG1
S1A to S1B Exch. RG (DWBGZMFD01QNBJR) RG1
S1A to S1B RG1 Exch RG (DWBGZMFD01QNBJR)
What I am asking advise on is what is the best way (order to proceed) to achieve what I want, which is Site 1 with Exch 2010 and Site 2 2003 Exch. 2010 is a CAS server. Site 2 relies on it for ext mail.
