  • Moving of bridgehead

    We are proceeding nicely through our Ex2000 to Ex2007 migration, with a lot of help from people here.

    At the moment our main firewall feeds port 25 to our Ex2000 mail server, we have a connector between 2007 and 2000 servers.

    The uses on the 2007 server, send email out through the 2000 server.

    Now we need to move the sending and receiving of email to the 2007 server.

    Redirecting port 25 is an easy enough job, but I am not sure what steps I need to take on both servers to move the mail processing over to Ex2007

    Any help is appreciated

    Thanks

    Dave

    Create a Send Connector on Exchange 2007, then remove the Exchange 2000 connector through ESM.

      I have gone to Organization Config > Hub Transport > Send Connectors

      In there is listed the connectors from the 2000 side of the farm.

      Am I right in assuming I go into the rule, source tab, and then add the 2007 hub server and delete the 2000 severs from it?

        Did you read what I wrote?

        I said CREATE a connector. Not modify the existing.

          Simon,

          Yes I did mis-read your post, so I do apolgise.

          After I have created a new connector to send email to the outside world, what do I do about the connector from the 2000 system ?

            As Sembee already wrote if your new connector on Exchange 2007 is working well you can just delete the Exchange 2000 SMTP connector through ESM.

            You only wrote about the sending part I hope you didn't forget about receiving mails which means to configure the receive connector on your E2007 box.

              I had forgot about them till you mentioned it, far too much going on.

              I have had a look in Server Config > Hub Transport and there are two reicve connectors already there, Client MAILSRV1 and Default MAILSRV1

              Are they enough to recieve email in from the outside world?

              We will have to set it so all email flows into the 2007 server, I take it any email for users on the Exchange 2000 server will get forwared across to it?

              Thanks

              Dave

                Assuming you don't use E2010 Edge server you have to activate "anonymous access" to the Deafult Receive Connector.

                Depending on your setup you can configure the network options for this connector as well. For instant if you are using a relay sending mails inbound to you you can restrict the access to your Default Receive Connector for the IP address of the relay only.
