Replace a failing Front-End Microsoft Exchange ServerLocked
My Exchange setup is pretty straight-forward. 1 front-end server, 1 back-end server, about 50 mailboxes. Front-end server is used for OWA, single domain. Both are on Windows 2003 Std server, running Exchange 2003.
The front-end hardware is old, the raid is failing so I’ve purchased a new 1U rack server, installed Exchange and designated it as a front-end exchange server.
When I connected it to the network, it displayed in the system manager just fine. I powered down the failing front-end server and left the new one in place.
I noticed a few things. 1st, I started to receive “bad mail” in the queue whereas I had never had any before. 2nd, I noticed my OWA users now had to put another “/exchange” after the URL to get to Outlook Web Access
Does anybody know of a step-by-step article for this process? also note, I never removed the failing front-end server from ESM (Exchange System Manager) It is actually back up and running, the new server powered down until I learn to resolve the other issues.
Thanks in advance for any guidance!
