    Arrow Top 10 New Features and Migrating From Exchange Server 2003 & 2007 to Exchange 2010

    It’s difficult to read any technical journal or website today without finding stories on cloud computing. In an effort to reduce costs and network complexity, some organizations are opting to move at least some software or services to the cloud.
    In response to this need, Microsoft released the first new version of Microsoft Exchange since 2006.
    Exchange 2010 has a lot to offer including more flexibility, a better user experience, simplified administration, and much more.

    What’s New in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010



    Exchange has been known for its extensive feature list, including: email, calendars, contacts, and storage management.
    With the 2010 update, they have addressed a few long standing issues and included additional functionality to help solve a crop of new, modern business problems.
    The benefits? Unification, lowered costs, higher availability, and improved security.
    Let’s review the top 10 new features.

    1. Webmail

    The new outlook web access (OWA) webmail client allows for delegation of administrative tasks. It also includes updated self-help options, intended to reduce help desk calls and ultimately, costs.
    The Exchange Control Panel allows users to set their own email rule-set, create distribution groups, and track message delivery. And, if you lose your phone, you can remote wipe from your browser.
    Another import feature is the inclusion of support for Firefox and Safari as well as Internet Explorer.

    2. Legal Hold

    By now, most corporate employees are aware that email should not be considered private. In fact, email has been subpoenaed for court cases.
    But corporate policies that outline conflicting message retention dictates make balancing legal requirements against increasing storage costs, a challenge. In response, Exchange now has a legal hold feature that allows for the retention of email, even if archived or deleted.

    3. Multi-Mailbox Search

    As a tie-in to the legal hold feature, the multi-mailbox search function will allow for searches spanning multiple users’ inboxes. This feature will prove useful for enterprises that need to search their entire systems, perhaps based off a few keywords.

    4. Exchange Control Panel

    The Exchange Management Console and Exchange Management Shell have been joined by the Exchange Control Panel. This is a new, user-level and administrator management tool that lets users perform basic tasks, and allows admins to perform tasks remotely, using a web interface.
    The more an end user is able to accomplish with help desk intervention, should translate to lower costs.

    5. Database Availability Groups

    Exchange 2010 introduces the concept of database availability groups. The idea is to allow you to designate multiple servers to host copies of individual databases. This is a feature designed to provide for a type of automatic backup. If one database fails, data can easily be restored from one of the availability groups.
    This will definitely prove to be an essential tool for business critical email.

    6. Database-Level Failover

    In previous Exchange versions, a failure would affect an entire cluster. But with the 2010 update, a database failure will be contained to only that database.

    7. Voice Mail Transcription

    Instead of storing email messages only as sometimes difficult to access attachments, Exchange 2010 now has a speech recognition engine that will automatically transcribe voice mail messages.
    The message will still appear as an attachment, which will allow for indexing, but will include a written text preview of the message.

    8. Call answering rules

    At some point, we’ve all encountered an automated attendant, directing us to press an option on our keypads to handle call routing. This nifty feature has found its way to the end user.
    Call Answering Rules allows employees to setup their own call routing rules. For instance, they can send certain calls to voice mail, to their cell or home phones, or to ring through to their desks.

    9. Personal Archive

    Users in this version of Exchange have a new tool to help manage often unruly inboxes.
    Personal archive allows for essentially two mailboxes — a primary mailbox and an archive mailbox. The archive is as readily available and easily browsed as the primary inbox.

    10. Retention Policies

    With the new retention policies in Exchange 2010, users can determine when messages should expire. This can be done at the folder or individual message level.
    Permissions can be tricky and determining resources access requirements can be a time-consuming activity. However, using role-based access control greatly simplifies this process.
    Rather than assigning permissions, an administrator can indicate tasks that a resource will perform. The appropriate permissions will then be assigned automatically.



    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    It appears that many organizations are ready to take the leap and migrate to the new version.
    Today we take a look at the upgrade process from Exchange Server 2003 and 2007 to Exchange 2010.

    Migrating from Exchange 2003/2007 to Exchange 2010

    Prerequisites for Exchange 2010 are extensive and are outlined in detail on TechNet. At a high level, you should ensure the following conditions are met prior to installation:



    • Functional level of your forest and Schema Master must run Windows Server 2003
    • Operating system – Windows Server 2008 with Service pack 2 must be used for all Exchange 2010 server roles
    • For server roles other than Edge Transport, computer must first be joined to an Active Directory forest and domain


    Migrating from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010

    Unfortunately, you can’t perform an upgrade on top of an existing Exchange 2003 or 2007 installation as you might expect. You will need to install Exchange 2010 separately.
    With this process, you will have two coexisting versions of Exchange, which you can run indefinitely until your are ready to make the full transition by moving existing resources like mailboxes, folders and connectors to the new installation.
    You will need to ensure roles are installed in correct order. Begin with the Client Access server role, then Hub Transport, UM server and finally the Mailbox server role.
    To begin the installation, pop in the DVD and follow the 12 step process:
    1. Autoplay should launch, click Run Setup.exe.
    If for some reason autoplay doesn’t launch, you can navigate the contents of the DVD to find the setup.exe file.

    2. At the Exchange Server 2010 welcome screen, you’ll have two options:

    • Install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1
    • Install Windows PowerShell v2

    These should have been setup during the prerequisite phase, but if not, you’ll need to install them.

    3. Click Step 3 to choose the appropriate language.

    4. Click Step 4: Install Microsoft Exchange. This option starts the Exchange Server 2010 Setup Wizard.

    5. Accept the license agreement and click Next.

    6. Choose Yes on the Error Reporting page, then click Next.

    7. Click Typical Exchange Server Installation. You can also change the installation path here if you choose. Click Next.

    8. On the Configure Client Access Server external domain page, enter a domain name, then click Next.

    9. Select an Exchange 2003 server in the routing group Exchange 2010 will connect to. Click Next.

    10. Next you’ll see the Customer Experience Improvement page. Choose a selection and click Next.

    11. The Readiness Checks page lets you verify if the organization and server role prerequisite checks were successful. Click Install to install Exchange 2010.

    12. On the Completion page, click Finish.
    Further detail on these instruction are available on TechNet.

    Migrating from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010

    The migration steps for Exchange 2007 are identical, with the exception of step 9 above, which does not have to be performed.

    Post Installation

    Microsoft has a program that will allow you to verify your installation. And they also recommend you complete the following steps:

    1. Configure your Hub Transport server.
    2. Create a mailbox on the Exchange 2010 Mailbox server.
    3. Send a a test email from Exchange 2010 to a user on an Exchange 2007 server.
    4. Send an e-mail message from a user who has a mailbox that is located on an Exchange 2007 server to the new Exchange 2010 mailbox user.

    Also, you must perform the finalize deployment tasks associated with each of the server roles you’ve installed. Follow this list of deployment tasks for each individual server role.
