Thanks, do i have to update domain schema? we are not running exchange on DC......
Also How many roll ups i have to apply to reach to Admin version Version 8.3 (Build 83.6)?
I didnt understand the last comments "After starting the setup without switches I got a message that one of the services needed was disabled.
After enabled this services (all exchange services where disabled) the setup could be continued again.

When trying to install the “Mailbox Role” I had the same problem with a exchange services.
This services is disabled during the setup. After starting the setup again I monitored this services and started it manual after it was disabled"
Can you please clarify what he meant? why the critical services were disabled?

You do not need to update Domain Schema if all three Exchange servers are in the same domain (which I believe it is).

As far as critical services are concerned, best practice is to get a list of all running services and ensure they start and run correctly after the upgrade.

you also should run on your current server to see what RU are they using.

according to this, you are on Update Rollup 17 forExchange Server 2007 SP3

and the lower one is on Update Rollup 10 for Exchange Server 2007 SP1

you probably just install the RU17 on the server first.


then plan for another upgrade to do "Update Rollup 20 for Exchange Server 2007 SP3" another day.

as long as you have enterprise admin, you don't need to worry about domain schema .. it should have enough access to run the required command

just double click and install the Rollup, it should be running like 30 minutes

after that, reboot, then done
