Hello Worldwide community,

I would like to know if upgrading a windows 2008 standard server to enterprise where Exchange 2010 is installed is possible ? Or will I have to do a fresh install with the new OS and reinstall Exchange 2010 ?

Thanks

Marc

Not supported and you will break some pieces in Exchange. ( the indexing for example)

So whats the supported solution?
Provision a new mailbox server (on Ent edition), dismount and move the existing databases across? then remove the original mailbox server (or rebuild using Ent endition if you want a second mailbox server in that site)

Bring up a new mailbox server with Windows Enterprise, install Exchange and move mailboxes to the databases on the new server, or use database portability, though moving mailboxes is probably the easiest.
