    Going thru the snacks now, Thank you great stuff…

  2. Mike Crowley says:

    sweet!  when can we expect to see technet documentation filled out?  Expecially the upgrade and coexistance sections?

  3. bobjase says:

    Does Exchange 2010 support a way to handle plus (or minus) addressing?

  4. Mike Crowley says:

    the ms press pdf makes several references to supporting environments that have exchange 2000.  is 2000 and 2010 supported in the same environment?  i thought i read somewhere that 2003 was the oldest supported.

  5. Exchange says:

    Mike Crowley: You can find updated documentation at  Be sure to copy/paste the entire link, because the () break the link in these comments.

    You are correct that Exchange 2000 is not supported for co-existence in the same forest as Exchange 2010.  The MS Press prePress content is a work-in-progress, and therefore not entirely complete at this time. These and any other errors are expected to be corrected by the final release.  In the meantime, the product documentation should give you the information you need here.

    I haven’t seen any info on the differences in STD and ENT editions yet. Anything to share there?

    Specifically what are the HA options for STD edition given that LCR and SCR no longer exist?

  7. pesospesos says:

    My understanding is that there are no HA/DR options for Standard edition anymore – everything needs to happen with DAGs.

    Can someone on the team let us know whether or not Exchange 2010 will have backup capability (similar to what’s coming in ex2007sp2?)  This is critical for many shops since DPM does not plan to support ex2010 until next spring…



  8. Mike Crowley says:

    Windows Enterprise Edition is required for DAG, but not for regular installations, right?  This is also something the book is misleading on.  (it says 50 databases – page 7)

  9. Exchange says:

    Mike, correct that Windows Enterprise is needed only for DAGs.  Yes, that book is incorrect with respect to the maximum number of databases.  It is a work in progress.  :)

  10. Mike Crowley says:

    I understand – and dont mean to be critical!  Just trying to make sure I have got my facts straight.  :)

  11. pesospesos says:

    Cool, thanks for the clarification!

  12. Simon says:

    Thanks for the clarification but the Windows ENT requirements limits one’s "incremental deployment" choices doesn’t it?

    Unless of course there is a Windows STD to ENT in-place upgrade path in Win2008 & Win2008R2. Perhaps that behaviour is now controlled by the PID as it is in Exchange. Can anyone shed any light on that?

  13. Karsten says:

    The Get-AlternateMailbox command introduced in the MS Press PDF seems to be not valid anymore – instead where seems to be a command "Enable-Mailbox -Archive"

  14. Just says:

    Exchange 2007 Service pack 2 is available on microsoft download site.

    I haven’t seen any info on the differences in STD and ENT editions yet.
