Exchange Migrate Sequence

Copper Contributor

Hi Everyone, 

 

We have a Exchange environment which we want to migrate from 2013 to 2019. We have Edge Server as well.

 

I would like to know the sequence of the migration. Can I start with migrating Edge role first while keeping 2013 Mailbox Servers or do I need to start with Mailbox and then the Edge?

 

TIA

You can use the Deployment Assistant for Exchange and select the option that you have an existing Edge Transport server deployed. This should give you some direction. Personally I don't think it really matters.

After you complete the Mailbox server, configure Edge.
