Replacing HTS & CAS Server - Exchange 2007
Posted on 2015-01-19
I currently have an Exchange 2007 Server running on Server 2003 in a virtualized HYPER-V environment. This server is running the Hub/Transport & Client Access roles and while trying to t-shoot an issue with Microsoft support I was told they do not support Server 2003 on any virtual platform. This server was originally running Exchange 2003 and was upgraded rather than replaced with a new server for Exchange 2007. I would like to replace this server with a new VM running Server 2008 R2.
I really want to rebuild the CAS server as the OWA and other CAS related features are really hokey on this box.
Any recommendations on the best process for this? I need to keep downtime of course to a minimum...
