Upgrade from Forefront Security V10 for Exchange to Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange

Hi,

In my win2k3 domain, I have an MS Exchange 2007 SP1 server with Forefront Security for Exchange V10 SP2.
In the DMZ zone, I have an Exchange Edge Server installed.

On my exchange server, I want to upgrade to Forefront Protection 2010 for exchange, as it has new features, ant-spam engines,...

It seems i cannot do an upgrade from FSE V10 to FPE 2010, is that normal?
Do I have to uninstall first the FSE V10 before I can do the installation of FPE 2010 ?

thx

Anyone can help me please?

Is it a better solution, to install forefront protection 2010 for exchange on both the internal exchange server and edge server in the DMZ?

During installation, anti-spam option disabled on the exchange, enabled on the edge?

Do I have to uninstall first forefont security for exchange on the exchange server before i can start the installation of forefront protection on it? ( I get an error that forefront security for exchange v10 is installed...)

thx

Yes- it is normal. The two products are very different.
Yes - you have to uninstall the existing product before installing FSE 2010.

The solution depends on your requiement. FSE 2010 undertakes many functions including providing the ability to monitor/filter mail that is in the stores - ie mails that are accessed through an Outlook client for example. It is also capable of monitoring the transports through the connectors. You can either do both on the same server (with one installation) or install on both with the configurations set on the first to monitor the mails stores and on the second to monitor the transports. just bear in mind that two installs equates to two fifferent implementations which equates to additional licensing.

Keith,

Thx for your comment.

So, what do you suggest?

Installation of Forefront Security for Exchange V10 SP2 on the exchange 2007 server in the lan and installation of forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange on the edge server in the DMZ? or on both servers, forefront Protection 2010?

As above, it depends on your requirements. I run Exchange 2007 with all the services on the one box so that is the sole place I install FSE 2010 and I monitor both the mail stores and the transports.
