Echange 2010 Roll Ups

Questions: I have to do Exchange 2010 roll ups. Two questions, !. Do I have to stops all the services including the mail store before i start installation?
2. Will doing the rollups have any probability to damage the information store or is it a pretty straight forward upgrade.

Thanks

1.  No, but you do have to be aware that the installation process itself automatically stops and then restarts some services.  So, you need to do the installation of the rollups at a time when it's OK to interrupt the mail flow for a short period of time.  Most rollup installations seem to take about 15-20 minutes or less.  This is on small to medium-sized databases; my largest DB is about 190GB.

2.  I have installed many Exchange rollups and have never experienced any damage to the information store or anything like that. It is a pretty straightforward install for the most part.  Occasionally a rollup will require adprep to be run, but the later ones I've done have this process built into the installation.

My experience has been the same as hypercat.  I would suggest that if you will be continuing to administer your Exchange environment, that you spin up a virtual environment, create a test domain, install Exchange and then install the SPs and RUs.  That will give you practice and a lot of confidence.   You can use Hyper-V if you don't have a virtual environment.  I have even done this on a laptop, but I recommend at least 6 GB of ram on the test server if you will be running 1 VM DC and 1 VM Exchange.
