Exchange 2007 server upgrade OS to windows 2008 enterpise

Good afternoon. We are currently using Exchange 2007 on a windows 2008 standard server, we are in th middle of a migration and would like to upgarde the server to windows 2008 enterprise so we can add some more processors and ram to the VM. Does anyone know if this would be a problem, if there is any documentation or anything we should note before performing the upgarde?

Many thanks, Dylan.

From technet

Yes, you can upgrade from Windows Server 2008 Standard to Enterprise.

Guide for Upgrading to Windows Server 2008

To do so, boot into your Windows Server 2008 Standard, insert the Windows Server 2008 disk and run it. Input a Windows Server 2008 Enterprise key or choose Windows Server 2008 Enterprise and then you can perform the upgrade installation.

I have done that myself, upgraded OS of the server that hosted exchange 2007 and it did not give any issues. (not saying that it WILL do the same to you as well.. )

Cheers Mkris9. We do only have one exchange server at the moment. It's a Vm with san storage so if we had an issue it wouldn't be down for too long. Once our migration finishes, I'll look into the exchange cluster technologies.

Cheers, Dylan.
