Hi guys
I am migration my sbs 2011 server to new hardware, all the mailboxes have moved, public folders and address books are done as well
Now it's time to remove the source exchange server

But email flow is completely still dependent on the source server,
I can't seem to find any specific document showing. What to do next...

Can anyone advise on what to do next...

If I stop the exchange  RpC service the email flow not only stops the client can't even connect anymore

Please help....
And thanks in advance...

Did you run the wizards on new server?
Did you follow the following article?
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg616008.aspx

I find it easier to use Acronis backup and restore using  a "universal restore" to get your installation on new hardware.
The actual backup and restore only takes about an hour excluding data. Half hour BU/ half hour restore.
Data transfers can be done before or after.

Hope that helps,
Olaf

Did you perform the installation on the new server in migration mode or as a clean install?

Thanks For the response Guys...
Just figured it out.

So after this just remove Exchange 2010 from the old server by going into add remove programs and that will remove the old server completely from the configuration..
SO in short started to ask these questions too soon...


Thanks anyway for your help , at least someone else can see this questions and hopeful will give a rough idea of what to expect.
Thanks
