Upgrading to Exchange 2007 – Checklists Part 1

Jeg vil i denne blog-post serie fokusere på en såkaldt “Transition from Single Forest to Single Forest” (fra Exchange 2003 til Exchange 2007).
Man installerer her nye Exchange 2007 servere ind i den eksiternede Exchange 2003 organisition og flytter data fra Exchange 2003 til 2007.
Denne checkliste skal primært huske mig på, i hvilken rækkefølge jeg skal implementere de enkelte roller/komponenter, samt de enkelte installationsfaser.

Mit endelige Exchange 2007 layout vil være som følger:

2 x CAS/HUB – NLB setup – 2 netkort i hver – LAN:
Windows Server 2008 Std x64 + Exchange Server 2007 Std. SP1 x64

2 x CCR Mailbox Servere – 2 netkort i hver – LAN
Windows Server 2008 Ent. x64 + Exchange Server 2007 Ent. SP1 x64

1 x ISA 2006 – OWA – DMZ
Windows 2003 R2 32 bit + ISA 2006 Std. SP1

1 x Antispam Device (Smarthost)) – DMZ
Kan være appliance løsning – ORF – Exchange 2007 Egde

Grafisk ser det således ud: (jeg har benyttet Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Visio Add-in)

Inden jeg starter med at installere Exchange 2007, er der en række system settings der skal være på plads i det eksiternede AD domæne og exchange org.
De er listet i nedenstående afsnit:

Exchange 2007 Prerequisites:

Sikre dig, at du har en god backup af dit eksisterende AD og exchange miljø.
AD domain og foret level skal min. være sat til Windows 2000 native
Exchange organization skal være sat til “Native Mode (no pre-Exchange 2000 servers)”
Kør DCdiag + tjek eventlog på dine dc’ere.
Kør Exchange Best Practices Analyser (Exchange 2007 Readiness Check + Health Check) i den eksisternede exchange 2003 org.
Kør EXCHDUMP på exchange 2003 serverne for yderligere information
Tjek eventlog på de eksisterende exchange servere.

Prepare Active Directory:

kør nedenstående kommandoer fra en x64 server i det eksisterende AD, med de nødvendige rettigheder (Enterprise Admins permissions).
Forinden skal man have installeret RSAT og Powershell.

Setup.com /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions
Setup.com /PrepareSchema
Setup.com /PrepareAD
Setup.com /PrepareDomain
