Migration Exchange Servers to Exchange 2010

Filed under: General — telnet25 @ 2:45 am

I am sure one of the most asked question will be , how do I migrate from Exchange X version ( mostly 2003 I suspect (-: to Exchange 2010?

In general migration is much easier in my opinion. IF you have ever done migration in the past you will know the main focus points always been in a nut shell

  • Size the new exchange 2010 server ( hardware configuration, mailbox , Hub, CAS, Edge etc )
  • calculate the IOPS
  • Design SG / DB for Exchange server or Servers
  • Design or Architect the roles  ( Number of servers )
  • Decide high availability ( cluster etc)
  • Implement  / Execute the plan
  • Once you have your  new Exchange ( new one 210 in this  example) server use mailbox move wizard to move mailboxes over to it.
  • Use MS articles to make sure migration is smooth, move all required Exchange data, PF folders, mailboxes etc
  • Make use mail flow works , other services are running properly OWA, Outlook anywhere etc…
  • Shut down the old exchange server to make sure nothing is getting crazy
  • After make sure everyone is happy Un-install your legacy Exchange server and complete the migration.

As you can see from basic steps the required actions takes planning and doing your homework correctly (-:

Since Exchange 2010 is not upgrade to Exchange 2007, and it is entirely different powerful application you may want to take a bit more time to investigate some of outstanding futures, the redundancy option is one of the most powerful future ( DAG), High Availability and Site Resilience.
