what for - do you have UM? or are you thinking about contacts and other bits?

you shouldn't really have to do anything for either of those bits

Yes we do have unified messaging. Here is what happened. We updated the topology when we first deployed lync and we were deploying exchange. The exchange servers were deployed in a virtual environment and had many issues. Because of this they quickly developed a physical environment and consequentially did not keep the same naming convention. So this is why we are here at this position with exchange servers with old names that are not replicating. Our IM is working fine though.

So whats not working or replicating.

the main exchange integration is between clients and lync and outlook on the desktop so IM and conversation history should be fine

For UM it should be a onetime setup initially to run the UM dials plans etc and set the permissions for Lync to access the attributes.
this is assuming that th servers are in the same exchange Org, which is in the same forest

Here is the deal under the topology tab in the control panel where it says status and replication the old names are there and it says N/A under status and replication. Is this a big deal but more importantly I want to change this.

We do not have integration with OWA and lync yet. That is one of the upcoming projects as I learning Lync.

ChrisCommented:
you shouldn't see any exchange servers under the topology tab for Lync or are you talking about Lync Servers?
you should see any front end, directors or monitoring servers in there with status and replication ticked/green

OWA and Lync integration is a different matter - there is a load of setup for doing that - at that point you might see the exchange servers in there, but we haven't done this in our environment

what functionality have you lost?

techdriveAuthor Commented:
We have not lost any functionality. It appear that these servers were placed here because these server names were going to be used for the Lync OWA integration. with Exchange and Lync. My last question is if we attempt to do another integration with the info you just provided will it remove the old names and not do any harm.

so someone has either named them under Trusted application servers or done enough on them to make them appear there.

If that's the case then its possible that some setup might have been done but the services or components on the exchange server

by running through the setup again it will amend any settings to integrate with Lync correctly  and then shouldn't have any adverse effects.

The only ways i can think of is to remove those it to either uninstall any lync components from them or remove them from topology builder and update/publish the topology but i haven't done this at any point so couldn't advise 100% the best to do this.
