  • Move Exchange 2003 to new server

    Hi,

    I have a Windows 2003 server which is a DC and exchange 2003 server called dc01.
    I have a new server on which I installed exchange 2003 called dc02. I want to gradually move exchange from dc01 to dc02. I have so far followed the MS Kbs. Now the issue I have is messages are not leaving the queue from the new exchange server I see this message "An SMTP protocol error occurred" when i click on the queue of the new server. I can see both server in the administrative groups. I can even move mailbox from one server to another.

    Any ideas

    Thanks

    I think it's on the first page of the Exchange 2003 manual, in ten foot high letters, to NEVER install Exchange 2003 on a Windows Server 2003 Domain Controller... isn't it?

      I know. I should have been clear. The current server was the only server. It was already here before I started and already had DC and exchange on it. I now want to separate the two things. I already have a new DC by itself. I now want to get the exchange part to the new server. So i followed the Ed Crowley Server Move path.

        ...and the new server isn't a DC? If you can, try to move Exchange to a non-DC, and if you need a second DC (always useful to have a couple lying around) you can DCPROMO another box later.

          The DC is not the issue. I have already created a new server for the DC. The issue I have is that old exchange server does not send messages to the new exchange (Not a DC ) server. The message is stuck in the queue.

            Event ID errors? More information is needed.
