Exchange Server 2007 SP1 mailbox migration into 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    I’ve got all in one Exchange Server 2007 SP1 RU3 that got all in one role installed (HT-CAS-MBx) in Windows Server 2003 Standard R2 SP which is also running as domain controller with all FSMO role.

    I’m planning to migrate the Exchange Server 2007 server role into the Exchange Server 2010 Standard that I have prepared in my Virtual Machine of Windows Server 2008 R2, what is the safest migration path to make the email flow working end to end parallel (staging migration process).

    [B](please also not that this Exchange Server 2007 SP1 got so many problem like – OOF email error in Outlook 2007, meeting scheduler stopped working, etc… therefore updating it into SP3 is not the way here and I've backed up the mailbox using Backup Exec 2010 in case i can just restore the backed up mailbox into the new server 2010 if possible)[/B]

    My this is what I’m about to do:
    1. Transfer all FSMO role into another domain controllers
    2. Install and configure similar role in the new VM (Exchange Server 2010 Std.)
    3. Confused…

    Things to do after all mailbox migration:
    1. Cutover the MX record into the new server name
    2. Install updated UCC- SSL certificate into the exchange server 2007

    Any kind of help and suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
