Exchange Server 2010 Setup

Hi,

Last week I have introduced first 2k8 R2 Domain controller (DC3) to our enviornment. Before we had two 2K3 DC's and planning to demote one of 2K3 DC's this week after transfer FSMO roles to new 2K8 DC. There after planning to deploy exchange 2010 on another brand new box. At the moment we have exchange 2003 and need to install exchange 2010 on to same exchange organization and then move mailboxes from 2003 to 2010 after. (Both private and public folders)

Can any expert let me know a good instructions to get this successfull?

Also when I use the AD 2k3, I have exchange tasks tabs for the user and how can I get this with 2k8 AD? Generally I use this tab to forward user's email and create a mailbox while create a new user etc.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Shal

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Exchange properties are no longer managed via AD Users and COmputers in Exchange 2010 you need to use the powershell or the Exchange Management Console.

The forwarding can be done from Exchange management Console. Find User>>Right Click>>Properties>>Mail flow settings>>Delivery Options>> select the contact you want to forward to.....

Requires a contact for the person being forwarded to same as 03 did.

Although many functions can still be done from 03 tools....Don't do it. OWA will not be happy if you use 03 tools to create accounts.

One last thing to add that there are 3rd party tools that can help bring back the tabs and exchange tasks in users and computers.
