Exchange Server 2007 Server Installation Templates and Build Automation Guidance Released


We have always recommended that customers prepare formal server build documentation for their Exchange environments. Until now, we’ve not provided any formal guidance around what that documentation should look like. We now have build documentation templates and instructions for preparing a build automation DVD. You can use these templates as a starting point for formally documenting your Exchange server builds. Preparing a build automation DVD can help streamline the installation of Exchange 2007 on both Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008. The templates and build automation guidance can be found here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc533547(EXCHG.80).aspx. Thanks to Ross Smith IV, with Exchange Center of Excellence, for his extensive help with this release.

Thanks,
Tom Di Nardo

    Thanks!

    Especially the hotfix list is very interesting. I always try to keep up with hotfixes but I cannot find the ones officially listed to apply at forehand.

    So now I assume the listed hotfixes are ‘neccessary and tested’ and can always be applied on a Exchange 2007 Server?

    I think Microsoft should publish a list with must have hotfixes for all their server and workstation installations. Like the hotfix list for clustering for example. Some fixes do not get published on WU but are needed in corp environments.

    Why no CCR on 2008????  That would be the most critical for us at this point!

  3. Brian says:

    I second the CCR on 2008 question… that would have been the most useful one for me.  

  4. Dan says:

    Will there be a "template" for CCR on 2008.  If so, what’s the timeline?

  5. Ron Thompson says:

    What is the Exchange 2007 requirement for IE7 (if any)?  On-going IE6 support aside, we haven’t seen any impact as yet.
