Exchange 2010 SP1 Coexistence


Exchange 2010 SP 1 installed without too much difficulty a few weeks ago, the most difficult part was that I had to install as the response to a crisis, the old 2003 Exchange server failed. I had been preparing the new server, but had not yet had time to study all the operational tidbits necessary for daily operations, but I have been muddling through them ok.

The mailbox transition wizard was extremely useful, for all but one mailbox. And the old exchange server failed to have a connector back to the new exchange server automatically created; ultimately I simple created one in the off change that it would work and presto coexistence was functional.

Had to acquire a UC/SAN SSL certificate for the new exchange server, and used DigiCert for that.

Mop up tasks include shared calendaring and the recommended tactic is a separate mailbox with shared rights, rather than the mail enable public folder; still mulling that over. The old shared calendar still exists in Ex2K3 but the rights are bollixed and users cannot access it.

More to follow as time permits.
