Current server is VM (exchange 2010 sp3) and we got a dedicated physical server on which all installations completed.

Now, we are demoting VM & want to set all configurations on new physical server as like as old server. The New server version is the same i.e exchange 2010 SP3 with CAS/HT/MBX roles.

Do you have an RPC CAS Array?
If not then you are going to be doing a lot of finger crossing. Clients will connect to that server, they will not move unless the server goes away - ie removed.
Then you are hoping that Autodiscover will kick in and redirect them.

Web services are easy to do, just make sure the DNS and NAT is correct then replication the URL configuration on the new server.

Routing Group Connectors can be between multiple servers, so either adjust the existing or delete them all and create a new one using remove-routinggroupconnector and new-routinggroupconnector

Hi Simon..We don't have RPC CAS Array.
Can we set the attribute of  'RPCClientAccess Server' for different databases on different CAS servers.

Simon Butler (Sembee)ConsultantCommented:
You can do, but that isn't really recommended.
Furthermore, even if you do that, the clients are not going to redirect, you will still have to visit them. It would be much better to setup a CAS Array then you wouldn't have to do this again.
