How to Change Which Server Is the Routing Group Master


Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-20

When you create a routing group, the first server in that routing group is assigned the role of routing group master. The routing group master maintains current link state information for its routing group and propagates it to the other servers within the routing group.

The following permissions are required to perform this procedure:

  • Member of the local administrators group and a member of a group that has had the Exchange Administrators role applied at the administrative group level

  • In Exchange System Manager, expand the routing group, click Members, right-click an Exchange server that you want to designate as master, and then select Set as Master.
