Hi Experts,

we have to upgrade our old EXCH2007 environment to EXCH2013. We dont go for 2016 because we still bought the licenses last year.

Can you help me with a nice step by step guide ?

I have 3 VMs and WIN2012 R" is installed and patched to the latest level.
I also have installed all WIndows features which are needed.
The Filterpack and the UCMA are also installed.
EXCH2013 is installed on each server.

I want to setup a DAG with all 3 servers.

I want to use DAG with 3 Servers.
Is it better to create the DAG in the beginning or later ?

Want to promote your upcoming event?

Are you going to an event? Are you going to be exhibiting at a tradeshow? Talking at a conference? Using a promotional banner in your email signature ensures that your organization’s most important contacts stay in the know and can potentially spread the word about the event.

Yes you can create DAG. Host your mailbox DBs in the DAG to have HA on mailboxDBs.

New-ExchangeCertificate -FriendlyName 'Contoso Exchange 15 Certificate' -GenerateRequest -PrivateKeyExportable $true -KeySize '2048' -SubjectName 'C=EG,S="Cairo",L="Cairo",O="Contoso",OU="IT",CN=mail.contoso.com' -DomainName 'mail.contoso.com','autodiscover.contoso.com' ,'legacy.contoso.com' | out-file c:\sw\e15_csr.txt

Open in new window


But I cannot read this with my Windows 2008 CA.
