Configure new exchange 2010 while old exchange 2003 running ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm in the process of deploying a new fresh installation of SBS 2011/Exchange 2010 server. Currently I have SBS2003/Exchange 2003 running. I want to retired the server and replace with the new server. No migration. By doing that, I am setting up the new server SBS2011 name/domain/ip everything the same as the old server and will replace once all the configuration is completed.

    1. Since they both using the same domainname/ip, can I setup the new server Exchange 2011 while the old server is alive? If yes, how's the process?

    2. If I export and import users email in .pst (on user outlook client) and when the new server is put in place alive does it will regenerate the database in new Exchange 2011? 

    Thanks in advance =)

  • You should create an isolated network if you want to use the same settings such as IP, Domain name etc.  I couldn't understand your second question  properly. Can you please give little more details?

  • Since you want to have same domain name and IP you need to have co-existence ( which will be in the form of migration from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010) and if you want to achieve with out  co-existence you need to set up exchange 2010 in the isolated network and export the pst from exchange 2003 and import to exchange 2010 and once SBS2011 is all set which is in isolated network you can retain exchange 2003 and bring back exchange to production.

  • If it is in isolated network then there is no issue running both servers.  The PST importing will work fine.

  • For the 1st question, both servers are in different/isolated network. So you were saying yes i can do that correct? will not going to have any issue running both servers having all the same configuration while configuring the new server up? 

    the 2nd. since i am not migrating, i am planing to export/import user email from outlook client and when i replace the old server with the new server, i setup the user email client and import the .pst back.
