Hi All,
Just wondering if anyone knows of a MS KB Article that guides moving
exchange from one server to another. I have found the one on how to do it
and retaining the server name, but my server will have a different name.
Both servers are online. The most i know to do thIs far is;
Install the new server, as an additional exchange server on the domain
Move the mailboxes across using AD Users and Computers.
My main question is how do I safely uninstall the old one, leaving
everything else intact?
