  • adding a new administrative group

    We are running exchange 2003 sp2, windows 2003 sp1, in a front end server and back end senerio. everything is working fine, but

    I just added a second back end server for students to our organization, and I realized I probably should have put the new server in a separate administrative group. We have not added any mailboxes yet - what is the best way (simplest) to get this server added to a new administrative group?

    Any and all help is appreciated

    The ONLY way is to remove Exchange from the server, create a new Admin Group, and then re-install Exchange. During the setup process you will be asked to what Admin Group you want to add it to.

      Thanks so mucjh for the reply it helps.

      So do I use setup to uninstall the exchange software off the server then reinstall it or are there additional steps I need to take like removing the computer from AD?

      Thanks again, Laura

        Okay I got it. Moved the mailboxes off, used add/remove in Control Panel, deleted some files off mdbdata, and the re-nstall went flawlessly.


        Just wanted to say thanks again.
