After restoring my Windows server 2008 R2 with it's exchange 2010 on a temporary virtual environment until we get our physical server back up and running. We are able to start up the server, login to it's desktop and from a remote location bring up OWA and see all emails from the time of the last backup (Last night). But we are not receiving emails.
So far we noticed that the server was getting the is "not genuine" message we figured it was because it was a OEM license sitting outside of it's DELL box and on another host and virtualized.
We ran a command to extend a trial period of the Operating System thinking that perhaps this would clear the message and resume our email traffic. It did remove the message but we are still not receiving emails.
Everything on the server software and configuration is exactly the same how can the hardware change cause the exchange to no longer receive emails?
