Dear Friends,


I have a scenario for you.


I have 2 site named Site A and Site B


On Site A I have the following servers:-


Srv1 --> Having ISA, Exchange 5.5 (Mailbox & OWA, mainly used as SMTP), IIS,
acting as domain controller

Srv2 --> Having Domain controller (Master)

Srv4 --> Having windows 2000 and Exchange 5.5 IMC (All in coming mails &


Site B:-


Srv5 --> Windows 2000 Replica Domain controller for site A, Exchange 5.5
server- member of same site as of Site A.


Solution required:-

We need to install a new Server on Site A which will be exchange 2000
server. This server has to be a member server to existing domain and will
maintain user's mailbox but has to act as a backend server for Srv1 in Site


If I use Microsoft Swing method to move the mailboxes. What will be the
effect on existing exchange servers? Will Srv1 act as a front end server? If
not, how can I configure the existing exchange 5.5 to act as a front end
server for the newly installed exchange 2000 server?
