  • Migrating from Exchange question

    I have Exchange 2007 setup with OWA. All of my users smart Phones connect to this server for e-mail and I also have Outlook users on the outside of my network connecting in. The site is this,,, mail.domain.com...

    I just installed Exchange 2010 and configured it for the migration. Doing the install of 2010 it asked me The client access server role will be internet facing? I checked the box and put in mail.domain.com and I'm not sure if I should of used the new server name which would be mail2.domain.com?

    I'm needing to keep using the name mail.railtrac.com with the new Exchange 2010 server. Is this going to cause a problem?

    The name you enter during the installation doesn't really have a huge effect. You can change the URLs in Exchange later on.

    In this scenario you would usually use the legacy domain method. All traffic would be pointed to Exchange 2010, with Exchange 2007 reconfigured to use a new URL (the legacy), for example legacy.example.com. That will require two IP addresses and probably a new SSL certificate.

      I exported the SSL Cert from the old Exchange server and imported it into the new server. Once I remove the old 2007 I'll rekey the cert. I hope that should do it.
