Migration from EXCH2007 to EXCH2013

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 ?

Hi MAS,

when I setup a DAG in advance before I have moved any mailbox, is it ok ?

MAS EE MVETechnical Department HeadCommented:
Yes you can create DAG. Host your mailbox DBs in the DAG to have HA on mailboxDBs.
