Exchange 2010 with Exchange 2013 Edge

Hi there,

We are running Exchange 2010 with 4 Servers (2x MBX, 2x H/C/T) and wanna migrate to Exchange 2013 in the near future.
One of our biggest pains is, that we have some very freaked-out linux-based MX which is pre-processing our mails before passing it to Exchange 2010.

So to get rid of the linux-based thingy and don't have the need to do things more than once I'm wondering, if it is possible to install an Exchange 2013 EDGE Server without having an Exchange 2013 role Server deployed anywhere in the network? If yes, we could start with that buddy and install the Exchange 2013 multi-role servers for migration at a later time.

Any help appreciated.

Yes. You can use 2013 Edge with 2010 hub transport servers. But I would recommend fully patching your 2010 servers before you do this. 2010 needs to be at Service Pack 3 Rollup 5 minimum or it won't recognize it.

Hi Gareth,

thx for your fast response. I already read your link before. Wasn't sure about the meaning of: "  If you want to create an EdgeSync Subscription between an Exchange 2010 Hub Transport server and an Exchange 2013 SP1 Edge Transport server, you need to install Exchange 2010 SP3 Update Rollup 5 or later on the Exchange 2010 Hub Transport server." This always comes in a co-existence combination - that was not clear if it is also meant if you just want to use the edge 2013.

Thx for the clarification.

Regards,
Marcel
