Rapid transition guide from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010


I am glad to present this Rapid Transition Guide From Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.

This guide will walk you through the most important considerations and steps that you need to perform before, during, and after the deployment of Exchange 2010 server.

This guide is written for the IT administrators of an existing Exchange 2003 organization which contains small to medium scale deployments.

This guide mainly focuses on a typical transition of Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 environment which includes the transition of Exchange 2003 backend and front end servers to Exchange 2010 mailbox server role, client access server role and hub transport server role installed using the typical installation method.

You can download this transition guide from Here

I will appreciate your comments and feedback on this guide. Please feel free to drop me an email at geek @ msexchangegeek . com if you think this guide has some important content missing.

EDIT: There is a change in Exchange 2010 SP1 setup UI which allows you to install and configure Windows Server Features required for Exchange Server 2010 SP1 Server roles. Except those changes in the setup UI this guide remains same for the simplest transition scenario. In case you have further questions please feel free to write tome at geek @ or use the blog contact form.

Thanks to everyone for their valuable feedback. 🙂
