  • rename server with Exchange 2007

    I am currently planning out a transition from a single exchange 2003 to a new server with exchange 2007. After I complete the transition and decommission the old exchange server can I renew the new sever with Exchange 2007 to the name of the previous Exchange server? Or does this present some issues?

    You cannot rename it. What are your reasons for wanting to?

      Renaming Exchange servers will break Exchange in such a way that the only way to fix it is to go back to the original name. Once Exchange is installed, that is it.
      If the migration is done correctly, the name of the Exchange server is immaterial - the usual reason I hear people want to change the name is for what I call "vanity" reasons. With careful use of DNS, the name of the server doesn't matter.

        With my moderator hat on - did you actually search the forum before asking this question?
        This question appears once already - just a few posts down from your question.
