Removal of old exchange server DC

Hi All

I have 2 Exchange servers:

SRV1 = SBS 2003 server with Exchange Server 2007
SRV2 = 2008 R2 server with Exchange Server 2007

Both servers are showing in the HUB transport section of the EMC

SRV1 is showing as having a receive connector
SRV2 is showing 2 connectors with one set as 'default'

All mailboxes are pointing to SRV2

Problem I have is that if I change the SMTP server on the firewall to point at SRV2 and I shut down SRV1 we do not receive any emails.

Both are set as DCs I would like to ultimately uninstall Exchange from SRV1 and just use SRV1 as a DC for network resiliance.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hello Rob1210,

SRV1 would be having Exchange 2003 server.

On SRV2 Create Send Connector with using below steps:
1.Open Exchange Server Management Console and Expand the Organization Configuration node from the left side pane.
2. Click on Hub Transport, and then click on the Send Connectors Tab.
3. Right click on Hub Transport and select New Send Connector Or under the Send Connectors Tab, right click any empty area and select New Send Connector.
4. On the Introduction page, you will need to give the Send Connector a name and then select its type as Internet.
5. On the Address Space page, click Add
6. SMTP address space * and Check Include all subdomains
7. Click Next
8. 6.On the Network Settings page, select Use domain name system (DNS) "MX" records to route mail automatically

 Or, If you have a smart host, for example you have a Barracuda anti spam , you can select the option Route mail through the following smart hosts and then click on Add and fill the IP address of the smart host.
9. On the Source Server page, add SRV2 will be automatically selected. If not add it.
10. Click Next and then Click on NEW and Finish.

After creation of Send Connector, please change SMTP server on the firewall to point at SRV2 and verify mail flow functionality.

Go into the Properties of your Default Receive connector on SRV2 and make sure the Permissions are configured to ALLOW anonymous. Then retest.
