I am running win 2003 R2, with exchange 2007 SP2.

I would like to upgrade to exchange 2010.  I will be running windows 2012 R2 in a VM.

Any good websites with step by step instructions on to perform this task?

dsnegi_25dec - some of those links refer to 2012; the author is looking at 2012 R2 which is not supported

afacts - either move to windows 2008 R2 with exchange 2010 SP3 or wait for exchange 2013 SP1 which will be supported on windows 2012 R2

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

seth2740, so if I wait for exchange 2013 SP1, will that be one file, or do I install exchange 2013, and then apply the Service pack?

Also, what is easier to migrate or transition from 2007 to 2013SP1?

dsnegi_25dec - i did open the third link; exchange 2010 SP3 which supports windows 2012; NOT 2012 R2

afacts - it will be a regular installation with the service pack.  they have done the same thing with exchange 2010.  you don't need to install RTM then apply the latest service pack; the service pack is the full product now with the latest components before any rollups.  2013 SP1 isn't released yet but have read 2012 R2 is supported with it.  haven't done a migration to it from 2007 but this article discusses what is required; might possibly change with the SP1 release

You can upgrade to exchange 2013 on windows 2012 server or wait for exchange 2013 sp1. You can use the below guide, not every thing might be applicable to you

Thanks everyone, I will just wait until exchange 2013 SP1 is released, to install it on a 2012 R2 box.
