Exchange 2010 Transport Architecture Diagrams Available for Download


The Exchange 2010 transport server role architecture diagrams are now available for download. The Hub Transport Role Architecture diagram can help you understand the different transport components involved in processing and routing messages, the different transport agents that act upon messages and the events on which they are triggered, and visualize the mail flow.

The Hub Transport Extensibility diagram can help you understand how different transport agents process a message in the Exchange 2010 transport pipeline.

Both diagrams can be downloaded from Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Transport Server Role Architecture Diagrams.

The Exchange Server 2010 Architecture Poster is now available. See Released: Exchange 2010 Architecture Poster for details.

Note that Exchange 2010 includes internal or built-in transport agents which are not visible when you use the Get-TransportAgent or Get-TransportPipeline cmdlets. The list includes transport agents that implement Information Rights Management (IRM) functionality- the RMS Protocol Decryption agent, Journal Report Decryption agent, RMS Encryption agent, and Prelicensing agent, as well as the Journaling agent. To learn more about transport agents, see Understanding Transport Agents in Exchange 2010 documentation.

    This is great, thank you! really appreciate a visual guide to "under the hood stuff" of the Transport Role.

    What are the chances of similiar diagrams on the CAS and HBX roles?

    It would be nice to expose the CAS and how MAPI maps onto the CAS next to EAS, EWS and other bits as well as showing the replication engine on the DAG interacting with the other bits of the MBX role, how public folders & PF replication fit in etc,

    Not asking for much I know, but you did guys uch a good job on the Hub diags that were hungry for more!

    Thanks again for providing two great pics.

    The Exchange 2010 Component Architecture Poster is in the works and will be available online, as well as distributed through limited events. When it is available, it will be announced on the EHLO blog.
