  • Demote 1 of 2 exchange 2010 server.


    We have 2 exchange servers in the site A, one is the old server and other one is new deployed recently, moved all information from old server to new, the issue is, still mails are hitting the old server queue. Please help me in finding out the issue why its not completely using the new server so that i can demote the old one.

    The only way to stop Exchange using the other server is to remove Exchange using add/remove programs. If you are waiting for Exchange to stop using it, then you are in for very long wait as the behaviour you are seeing is the expected behaviour.

    Exchange will use all servers with the hub transport role to process email. The role doesn't belong to any specific server. If you have all three key roles on the same Windows server, then you effectively have three Exchange servers, all of which can operate independently.
