  • Outlook users can't connect after Exchange 2003 to 2003 migration

    I am moving from one peice of hardware to another. Exchange 2003 to anoher Exchange 2003. I have moved everything according to MS (pub folders, RUS, OAB, etc). I unplugged cable from NIC and was planning on leaving system up until I could prove the system would function on its own. Users came in this morning and Outllok was not opening properly and users getting hour glass in some instnaces. Again, ALL mailboxes moved and decommission ALL done. I have done this numerous times, but never had Outlook bomb out when users try to access new server. Old server is ONLY an email server (no DNS, DHCP, etc) and new server is ONLY and exchange server. Anyone seen this before?

    Had the users redirected to the new server?
    Have you replicated the system folders and then removed them from the list of replicas?

      Yes. All users have been working off new server for a while. I followed all MS docs to move system folders over. All looks well here.

          That is the usual article that is suggested. Either that or mine: http://exchange.sembee.info/2003/mig...-migration.asp

          However for Outlook to be falling over like that when you shut down the server tends to indicate something hasn't been moved correctly.
