Hello,

currently we have an Exchange 2003 Entp. on a Windows Server 2003 SBS (DC). The hardware machine is running high on cpu load because several other services are "stealing" performance.

But the highest cpu load is from exchange and its database. So I've installed a second Windows 2003 SBS (Domain Member) and a second Exchange. All is running well and both exchange servers are "seeing" each other. The first server is also acting as Mailserver to extern. All mails are received and send throug the "main" exchange server on the DC Server.

The plan is to move the mailboxes to the second Exchange and switching the first exchange off. The move of the mailboxes seems to be quite easy with the system manager. But what do I have to consider when I switch off the first exchange? Do I have to configure the second server to act as standalone and how?

Thx in forward

Best regards from switzerland
Ben
