Can I move Exchange Servers to a different OU within a domain?

Is there any impact of moving exchange servers (2 of them) and the Cluster Name Object to a different OU in the same domain?
Please advise.

Thank you,

None. Should be fine.
If you see any weird events in the logs, reboot the server but you really shouldnt have to.
Just make sure the new OU doesnt have any weird denies or GPOs.

Hi Andy,

No issues with moving the Exchange servers to a different OU.
Now on to seeing if this resolves my issue with adding member servers to my DAG!

Thank you,

Hi @CatherineJaszewski-5685

Agree with Andy that there would be no problems moving Exchange servers to a different OU.

Here's a relevant link where some users had shared their expereince in moving Exchange servers to different OU and no issues were encountered:
