I should have looked before that last post ;);en-us;q266643  

Install Exchange 2000 from your Exchange 2000 CD. Make sure that you install
the following components: * Exchange Server 
* Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Exchange System Manager snap-in 
* Instant Messaging Service

Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange 2000 Multiple Instant Messaging Servers

In preperation for my Exchange 2003 upgrade, I want to move the IM services
to another box. So I installed Exchange 2000 on another server, but only the
Instant Messaging/System Manager. (sp's... etc.) I created an IM server in
the RVP protocol section of the System Admin, and then a SRV record for the
new server. However, the old IM server is still active on the same network.
Is this an issue? I can't connect to it, and worse, I can't connect back to
the old server. I deleted the new IM server instance, and its SRV record as

can more than one IM server host user accounts on the same network? how is
it done?I didn't find anything specific this on MS or google.
