I have just about completed a migration from Small Business Server 2003 to Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V host with multiple Server 2012 R2 VMs. Also as an interim, I have a Server 2008 R2 VM running Exchange 2010.
I have completed the migration from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 and uninstalled Exchange 2003 from SBS.
We have a Canon iR-ADV C5250 copier. This is the main printer, copier and scanner at our Head Office.
A couple of weeks ago, towards the end of the Exchange migration...the scan-to-email function of the copier stopped working.
It took some digging in the settings of the copier, but I eventually found a reference to the SMTP server at:
Settings/Registration : Function Settings : Send > Network Settings - E-Mail/I-Fax Settings
The setting was pointing to the old exchange 2003 server, I edited the setting and pointed it to the new Exchange 2010 server. After that it has been scanning happily to email, for several weeks.
I was pretty sure that I have moved everything off the old server, so today I shutdown the old server. Within a few minutes I was notified that the scan-to-email function no longer worked. I tested it a few times and it kept timing-out. I had another look at the copier settings and it was still pointing to the new Exchange server for SMTP.
In the end I turned the old server back on and now we can scan-to-email again.
I don't think it could be an email thing, because Exchange 2003 has been uninstalled from the SBS server, so all email must be going through the new Exchange 2010 server.
I am not sure what is causing this issue and I can't even think of where to start looking or how to troubleshoot. There must be some function that the old server is still providing, but I don't know what it could be.
Can someone out there who is smarter than me please point me in the right direction???
