SBS 2008 + New Server

Hi all

I've got a couple of clients currently running SBS 2008 looking for an upgrade.
I'm keen to put in a new Exchange Server and split the role between the two servers, one on Exchange 2007, the other on Exchange 2010. I'm not too sure how to go about the installation of the second Exchange server, as I want to have the Front-end up so there's no issue with OWA/Mobile connectivity for mailboxes as I move them.

Does anyone have any good articles/advice?

Cheers

I've used these articles to upgrade a number of clients from SBS 2003 to Exchange 2010 without incident.

https://www.simple-talk.com/sysadmin/exchange/upgrade-exchange-2003-to-exchange-2010/

Now in this article he refers to using an ISA server for the firewall. You can simply skip those sections if you don't have one, or, use the concepts to rework those sections for whatever firewall you are using.

The command under OWA Configuration in this article describes what the second part of your question.

Set-OWAVirtualDirectory <CASHUB01>\OWA ‘ -ExternalURL https://webmail.inframan.nl/OWA ‘-Exchange2003URL https://legacy.inframan.nl/exchange 

This sets up a forwarder so mailboxes on both the old and new servers can coexist without OWA breaking.

Being that you are on SBS, which has a 75 user limit, you may even be able to skip this as you can probably move all your mailboxes in one weekend. My last two 2003 SBS migrations I didn't even use this as I move the whole thing in one weekend.

You may also want to consider Office 365 for SBS as well.
