Migrating from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010


Next weekend, I'll be migrating my Exchange environment from 2003 to 2010. I have a new 2010 Exchange server ready to go. It will act as the Client Access, OAB, Hub Transport, and Mailbox server roles. All the roles are installed and ready to go. My question is if I'm moving all users from 2003 to 2010 at the same time, do I need to create send connectors? I don't plan on leaving the 2003 box active. Thanks.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You will need to create both Send and Receive connectors on your Exchange 2010 box.


Create a test user on your 2010 box and test your connectors prior to migration.

If you dont have them configured on the 2010 server then yes you will have to create a send connector.
