  2. Hello Benedicte,

    Is the running Exchange also DC? Running Exchange on DC's is not recommended.

    Additional for domain preparation see if this applies to your environment:

    Install the server with OS and install Exchange on the new one, during Exchange
    install at it to the existing exchange site, then move mailboxes and public
    folders, create MX record in DNS for the new one, check Recipient update
    service pointing to the correct DC. Also if used check Firewall settings
    for the new exchange.

    After moving everything to the new exchange follow this article:

    If you see errors in the event viewer maybe this helps:

    Best regards
