    Exchange Server

    Hi All,

    Our Exchange server is now 5+ years old so we are looking at replacing it (with the encouragment of a HDD failure). Our current OS is Server 03 and using Exchange Management Console 07.

    I am aware the EMC 13 is now availible. Was wondering if anyone has upgraded from EMC07 to 13 and how they find it. Any information back about this would be a great help as everyone knows a 5+ year old server with one of its HDD failed can only be bad news

    Regards

    Dan

    According to some websites the transition from 2007 & 2010 to 2013 will require a special roll-up from MS which is yet to be released! (Thank you MS) Ive done a migration from 2000 to 2007 and that was fairly pain free. Just need MS to release that roll-up and they exist side by side for a day or two and do a mailbox move to the 2013 box. Jobs a good en'

    Edit - Seems like an informative blog: http://www.infoworld.com/d/microsoft...ge-2013-207258

    Have to wait for RU to be released. Or if you can't wait go to Exch 2010 SP2.

    From my reading and conversations I think it very likely that the only upgrade path to Exchange 2013 is going to be from Exchange 2010 so I would recommend getting yourself upgraded to 2010. If you are then happy with it you can stay at that version or you could then upgrade further to 2013. The only reason for NOT doing that would be if you wanted to install onto Server 2012.

    Until the next service pack (due sometime in the next 6 months) for Exchange 2010 you will not be able to install Exchange 2010 onto Server 2012.

    As you have had a hardware failure already I would recommend installing Exchange 2010 onto Server 2008 R2.
