Exchange 2010 SBS Exchange not connecting since transfer of Master roles to 2012 Server

the old exchange is still online but it's asking for prompts for the users since I've migrated the FSMO roles over to the 2012 R2 server.
Machines can ping and access it still but I can't get any users to connect via Outlook regardless of version.

any thoughts would be much appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,
Did you add the new DNS server address in the exchange server network card properties?

The problem here is that you broke it.  Or rather you broke the licensing when you transferred off the FSMO roles.    How long ago did you do this?   Typically within 7 days after transferring the FSMO roles, the SBS server will begin shutting down every hour or so.

SBS must hold all the FSMO roles.   You can have additional DC's if you wish, but the SBS server has to be the boss!

Cris is correct here.

You either need to transfer the FSMO roles back to the SBS or decommission the SBS.
