Advice: Upgrade Exchange 2007 to 2010
What is the best way to do this without a load of admin work?
We have: 1 physical server running exchange 2007 and we dont really have a spare server to install 2010 on and run both at the same time..
I know you cant do an in place upgrade (for reasons best known only to MS!) so how can I backup all relevant info from 2007 (settings, mailboxes, etc), uninstall 2007 and then install 2010 and import the settings back in?
Can 2007 be moved to a VM?
Can 2010 be installed on a VM, migrate everything to that, then reinstall the 2007 box with 2010 and move the VM'd 2010 to the physical Server/
Or am I best not bothering?
