Exchange 2013 migration cleanup

I migrated from Exchange 2007 to 2013. All is working but I am concerned about cleaning up Exchange so I can safely uninstall 2007 from the domain.

In previous migrations  I had to make sure global address book and Offline address book were moved. I don't see how to do that or how to tell which server they are now on.

Under virtual directories there are a lot of directories still on the old server. Do I need to do something with them?

I can't find a document regarding this

I do have send and receive connectors changed.

The GAL link is for 2007. Should I run that in 2013 also?

I was able to confirm OAB is on the new server

I ran get-receiverconnector "relay" on the 2013 server. The receive connector name is "relay." and it is only on the  2013 server. It came back saying newserver\relay could not be found on oldserver.

Evidently there is a lot more to do. I miss the days when MS would put out migration documents.

Receive Connectors are per server.
Send Connectors are org wide.

The GAL is a domain setting, it doesn't exist on a specific server.
The only thing you have to worry about is where the OAB is being generated.

Otherwise when you run setup.exe on the old server, if there is anything left it will tell you and block you from doing the uninstall.
