Hi Everyone,
I’ve got all in one Exchange Server 2007 SP1 RU3 that got all in one role installed (HT-CAS-MBx) in Windows Server 2003 Standard R2 SP which is also running as domain controller with all FSMO role.
I’m planning to migrate the Exchange Server 2007 server role into the Exchange Server 2010 Standard that I have prepared in my Virtual Machine of Windows Server 2008 R2, what is the safest migration path to make the email flow working end to end parallel (staging migration process).
(please also not that this Exchange Server 2007 SP1 got so many problem like – OOF email error in Outlook 2007, meeting scheduler stopped working, etc… therefore updating it into SP3 is not the way here.)
My this is what I’m about to do:
1.      Transfer all FSMO role into another domain controllers
2.      Install and configure similar role in the new VM (Exchange Server 2010 Std.)
3.      Confused…

Things to do after all mailbox migration:
1.      Cutover the MX record into the new server name
2.      Install updated UCC- SSL certificate into the exchange server 2007

Any kind of help and suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

you need to at least upgrade your server to SP2 before you can introduce 2010

take a look at this article regarding the oof, free/busy issues

correct, you need to either upgrade to sp2 or sp3
take a look at this:

I am stuck in ihop and saw this qn. Let me take a shot

A) apart from what endital said above
@ upgrade.
Preferably upgrade to sp3
B) open exchange
Go to toolbox
Go to best practices analyzer
Run health scan

Make sure you fix all these errors prior to a migration

C) oof and other issues are probaby because configs are not set
Use enditals article aboe and run the following. You can copy paste the results here

Get-autodiscovervirtualdirectory | fl
Get-webservicesvirtualdirectory | fl
Get-outlookprovider| fl

Thanks

go to the properties of your offline address book and ensure that there is a server listed for web based distribution

it sounds like you have an issue with autodiscover and the urls it provides to your outlook clients

check the article i posted in my first comment
you'll want to run the following to verify settings
