Exchange 2007 - Recovering an SP3 CCR Node

Hi all,

I'm replacing an existing VM CCR node with a Physical VM soon.

I'm planning on shutting down the old server and using the recover mode, to recover the server onto a Physical machine.

The server was updated to SP3 awhile back, and I only have SP1 media.
I can obviously download the SP3 Service Pack files. Can I recover with that?

Do you see any issues with my approach?
Thanks.

You can recover but need to upgrade to Sp3 using upgradeCMS command

Hi guys,

I know how to recover the server using the recoverserver switch. I was just trying to find out if doing this from Sp1 media would be fine.

However, as it happens, i spoke to another one of our administrators and checked the exchangesetuplogs and it appears the server was originally installed using SP3 as it stands. So this questions no longer applies to my instance.

Sorry for wasting anyone's time.

Thanks!

After digging on the server, it looks like it was already installed as SP3, so using the SP3 files should be fine to recover it.
