I am in the process of setting up Exchange 2010 in my Exchange 2003 system. i currently have my CAS array setup with hub transport installed. I have successfully setup my edge transport in my dmz and have setup the subscription and verified connectivity by using the command test-edgeSynchronization and it comes out successful. What i would like to try is to test this setup via telnet to edge server and send an email. I would like to know if it is possible to send an email this way to one of the email boxes that still resides on my exchange 2003 server. Thanks.
No not yet but i thought that by setting up edge and hub and my CAS that I could test connectivity just by using telnet tot he edge and it would move it to the queues on the hub. i can telnet to both hub and edge and the email just sits int he message queues. Also remember this is an coexistence with Exch 2003 so there is an exch2003 mailbox db sitting there. So from what your saying i need to get all roles into place before routing happens correctly.
yes the routing group connector was created upon installation of my CAS server. I also verified it by going into Exchange System manager on my exch2003 server and looking under routing groups I see one for exch2003-exch2010 and one for exch2010 to exch2003. Also when i go into my exch2010 CAS server and under Exch mgmt shell and run get-routinggroupconnector i see both actually i see 4 for both of my CAS servers. One thing. Can i test this functionality without installing the Exch2010 mailbox db role? Then finally how can i test to see if this is functional? Thanks.
ok so after two weeks of attempts and finally a support call to MS i finally got the mailbox role installed. i can now telnet and see messages flow from my edge server to my hub transport but what moves them from there to my exchange 2003 box?
