Hi there,

You cannot inplace upgrade from Exchange 2003 to 2007, so it's all new x64

hardware.

Your only plan is to build your Windows 2008 Servers (leave forest

functional level as 2003, upgrading to 2008 is not supported/tested with

Exchange 2003), and then Schema and Domain prep your Org for Exchange 2007

SP1 (SP1 is supported for Windows 2008).

You are then ready to install your first Exchange 2007 Server.

What are your deployment and high availability options for Exchange 2007?

Have you for that far in your design yet? I presume you will have HA as your

already do in your 2003 environment.

2. Mailbox Servers - 2 (Clustered- Active, Active, Passive)

3. Public folder server - 1

Steps I willbe performing.

1. I will upgrade My Root Domain to Win 2008.

2. Install and configure windows Cluster service on win 2008 server whil

will be CCR.

3. Then I will Install Exchange server with CAS/HUB as my first Exchage 2007

on brand new servers.

4. Install and configure CCR roles on Windows 2008 servers on which I will

configure CCR.

5. Finally move resources from Exchange 2003 to 2007.

Kindly suggest me if anything is missing.

Also could you giude me how should I migrate RUS, GAL, and recipients

policies from Exchange 2003 to 2007.

Thakns

You should build the HT+CAS servers before the CCR cluster. One reason is

that one of the HT+CAS servers should host the cluster's file share witness.

So you want to change the order to 1, 3, 2, 4, 5.

Also, for step #5, replicate public folders ahead of moving mailboxes.

If you're asking about recipient policies, they get translated into both

accepted domains and e-mail address policies. You may need to update them

after installing Exchange 2007. You can delete the recipient update

services once you make the decision to stop creating recipients on Exchange

2003, or you can wait until just before removing the last Exchange 2003

server.
