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 ?

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

Now I have a problem with a cert request ....
From your documentation, I have created this request :

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.
