Hi, I am moving an exchange database (2010 sp3 to 2010 sp3) from my dc (server 2012r2) to a VM (server 2012), I need to move the database into the VM exchange. Then mount it, and have it map back to the users in the DC (not VM since there are none in the VM) unsure of the best route and how to accoplish. Thanks
The easiest way, depending on how many users you have is to just build your second exchange server, create a new database on it and then do local mailbox moves to the other DB on the new server. Move everything and then uninstall exchange from the DC leaving you with just the new exchange server.
