Experts,

I've been tasked with a major replacement and I'm looking for any advice you may have.  Currently we have 1 exchange 2010 server that handles our environment.  we have about 100 mailboxes/users.  What I need to do, is spin up a mirrored exchange server, and install all the roles to the mirrored box, I can handle that, but what I'm namely looking for, is for anything that i need to be aware of that I'm not already thinking of.  The object, is to spin up the new Exchange server, migrate the mailboxes from the old server to the new one, and then decommission the old one, and remove it from the Exchange forest.

Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated, thank you!!

Hi,

Add new exchange server with all roles installed on it
Move user mailboxes from old server to new server
Move Arbitration and Archive mailboxes from old server to new server
Move any public folder DB
Move OAB generation server
Check mail flow for users
Check connectivity for users, OWA, Outlook ECP etc
If everything runs well then shutdown old server for some time to see all thing still works well.
Then proceed with old server decommission .
