Does anyone know if you can upgrade a 2008 R2 Enterprise Server running Exchange 2010 v14.3 b123.4 to Server 2012? What issues would there be?

Could and could not work.  With SP3 for exchange installed its compatible with 2012.  Issue you will probably have is the exchange management console will be broken (most probable cause would be the WINRM for IIS).  Resolution would be to reinstall the WINRM component in IIS after the upgrade.  I have heard it work and fail miserably.  Just make sure you have all updates installed prior to upgrade.

SP3 is installed, all updates are up to date. I have heard about the IIS issue as well and concur that is one issue that would be a large issue.
Anyone else have any ideas?

Upgrading the OS with Exchange installed is not supported.
End of story.

Therefore if you want a newer OS, it is a new installation and a swing migration.

That's what I was looking for, and suspected. Coming from you, I'll except that as a reason to startup another server box install the new OS on that with Exchange 2013. Thank you
