Exchange Servers in Multiple sites

By Beldin32 ·
I have just inherited a problem from a previous systems administrator with Exchange 5.5.

There are 8 distinct exchange sites in our organisation, each with their own servers, being BDC's of our Primary site. It all works fine apart from one thing.

Two of the remote sites servers are also listed in our Primary servers local site, as well as in their own sites. This means that e-mails are getting very confused and generating a huge amount of internal RPC traffic. The mails get there, but can take up to a day.

I am at an initial loss as to how to fix this, and I do not want to start again with the remote sites.

It sounds to me like these two servers were probably built at the main site and joined to it (rather than choosing the new site option) before being deployed at the remote sites.

I hope someone else has some good ideas, but I don't know any fixother than to backup the information stores, rebuild Exchange properly and then restore the information stores. However, with a moderate size installation (2gig information store), it only took a couple of hours start to finish.

Ok, I found a KB article on this. It's called "How to remove an Exchange Server from a site". This might be just what you need.

Find it at www.microsoft.com/technet. It is KB article Q189286.

Good luck!
