I am the admin for a very small school district and starting to map out my Exchange 2007 -> 2010 upgrade. Since 2010 (and 2007) are designed to be deployed on multiple servers (hub transport role, client access role, etc.), I get pretty lost in the documentation, which seems to be designed for these huge environments. We have 110 mailboxes and have always been fine with everything on a single server. Exch 2007 is on a 64-bit 2008 server.

Is anyone aware of a resource or document that breaks it down specifically for a small org like mine? Can I upgrade in place or must I upgrade to a different server? Can/should the roles be virtualized (we do have some Hyper-V servers).

Inplace upgrade from Ex 2007 to Ex2010, is not supported.

For this you have to prepare another machine and install ex2010 there, and then move all mailbox and public folder data there, also move all OAB generation and distribution there, configure new Ex 2010 CAS server for OWA and outlook, and then verify all services on new ex2010, and then uninstall old ex 2007.

Once u complete all objects transfer from Ex 2007 to 2010, you can turn off Ex 2007 for few days to test that all is running fine without legacy server and then decommssion it.

Hi,

I agree with Laeeq, in-place upgrade from E2K7 to E2K10 is not supported as IIS requirement for both the server are different and you cannot do the in-place upgrade.

For your environment, as he said install new E2K10 server and start the migration (Move Mailbox, PF Replication, OAB (No big deal :) CAS configuration and things like that) and once its done you are good to go.

Let us know if you get stuck some where.

Cheers,

Also you can install all ex 2010 roles on a single machine, even on Hyper-V. Its completely supported.
