FYI you are are running an unsupported version of Exchange consider upgradinging to Exchange 2013 or 2016. Exchange 2019 will be released by mid of 2018.

Take a full backup recommended before upgrade (recommended). If you are running out of time take a copy of your mailbox databases at-least to be safe.
Dont forget to switch off antivirus.

Thanks

You need to upgrade to Exchange 2010 or later (later is ideal) or move to the cloud.  You're putting yourself and your users in tremendous peril from malware and downtime by using a version of Exchange that isn't even receiving security patches.  This is VERY, VERY unwise.
