Exchanage 5.5 replaced by Exchange 2007
Posted on 2007-10-17
My company has 2 separate Windows 2000 based domains with some trust relationships in place.
We run approx. 15 Exchange 5.5 servers - all user data sits in their local PST files, no public folders or other comlications.
Plan is to go to Exchange 2007 - need some pointers what to look for before the move.
My plan is to setup new Exchange 2007 server from scratch, and move users gradually to it.
My understanding is that I have to have DC (that holds schema master) on the win 2003 AD level - is that correct?
Since the company has many locations is there some kind of "thinner" mapi client that would work with Outlook?
Any thoughts on making Exchange 2007 fault tolerant (second server duplicating the role etc?)
Any good resources to read?
