SBS2008 (Exchange 2007) ready to remove following migration to Exchange 2013 - any special precautions?
Posted on 2016-07-27
We are in the process of migrating from an SBS 2008 server to a Windows 2012R2 Domain with a separate Windows 2012R2 handling Exchange 2013.
All Exchange migration steps have been completed. All mailboxes are now on the Exchange 2013 server. Send/Receive connectors are on the Exchange 2013 which is now fully handling mail flow.
I am now ready to start removal of Exchange 2007 from the SBS 2008 server. Following that, I will migrate the Active Directory roles prior to shutting it down permanently.
My question is that. Being that this is an SBS 2008, are there any other special processes that I need to be aware of before uninstalling Exchange 2007? Also, are there any other concerns or potential issues I should be prepared for, or should this behave like a normal Windows 2008 server running Exchange 2007?
Any suggestions or recommendations would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
