Exchange 2003 migration to Exchange 2010 server

Exchange 2003 migration to Exchange 2010 server and Spam Filtering of SMTP IP Address I will be forwarding all emails this weekend to the new migrated Exchange 2010 server and the 2003 Exchange server will only substituting/proxying requests from the Exchange 2010 server. I have right now a Barracuda anti spam firewall installed in the 2003 server that has an IP of the 2003 server "destination Mail Server". Also, it is a receiving and sending IP.

Do I have to adjust this to the 2010 server? (I'm sure it needs some adjustment but I have to be sure to gather second opinion). Note: My Mailboxes are still using 2003 server but I want all the outgoing and incoming email messages course through the 2010 Exchange server so I wanted to know which IP will have to go into the Barracuda.

Please anybody help me with this matter, thank you in advance.

Exchange 2003 migration to Exchange 2010 server


I will give you the whole sequence that involves the migration of exchange server 2003 to exchange 2010.

  1. First thing to do will be to bring the Exchange organization to Exchange Native Mode.
  2. And then you will need to upgrade the Exchange 2003 Servers to Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 2.
  3. Thereafter, you will bring the AD forest and the domains to the Windows Server 2003, and then you will have to upgrade at least one Global Catalog domain controller that is available in each AD Site that will used to house Exchange Server to Windows Server 2003 SP2.
  4. Once you have done the above, you can now prepare a Windows Server to be used by Exchange 2010 server, and then you will install the AD LDIFDE tools on the new Exchange 2010 server.
  5. Next you will need to run setup on the Exchange 2010 server, and then prepare the forest and domains, and thereafter you will install CAS server role servers and then configure per 2010 design.
  6. After that, you will need to transfer OWA, the ActiveSync, and Outlook to the new CAS servers.
  7. And then you will set up the Hub Transport role and configure per 2010 design.
  8. You will need to transfer the inbound and outbound mail traffic to the HT servers, and then install Mailbox servers and also configure Databases.
  9. Once you have done that, you will make public folder replicas on Exchange 2010 servers, and then you will move the mailboxes to Exchange Server 2010 using Move Mailbox Wizard or you can use Powershell as well.
  10. The next thing to do will be to rehome the Offline Address Book generation server to Exchange Server 2010, and also rehome the Public Folder Hierarchy on new Exchange Server 2010 Admin Group.
  11. Next you will move all Public Folder Replicas to the Exchange Server 2010 Public folder, and then get rid of the Public and Private Information Stores from Exchange 2003.
  12. Once you have done that you will get rid of the Routing Group Connectors to Exchange Server 2003, and the Recipient Update Service agreements.
  13. And lastly you will get rid of all Exchange 2003 servers.
