I currently have exchange 2007 on a windows 2003 server and have introduced a windows 2008 r2 server with exchange 2010.
Here is what I have done so far on the windows 2008 r2 (Exchange 2010 ONLY) server:
Installed the roles required by exchange 2010
Installed exchange 2010 application - it found the existing domain and populated EMC with current domain production data (domain, mailboxes and such)
Created new secondary drive for exchange DB file
Moved exchange DB file to new drive
renamed the exchange DB file
configured exchange 2010 OWA – its reachable with localhost
Installed Microsoft Filter Pack
I believe the next step is to configure hub transport send / receive connectors but I am confused on how to configure them. Do I just make them mirror exchange 2007 hub transport send / receive connectors ?
I have read this article on the subject and it really isn't clear on how to approach this for my particular setup....
