Screencast (Part 2): How to Upgrade from Exchange 2013 to Exchange 2019

by admin
Part 2: 

  • Create a dedicated public folder database and relocate the DB and log files to the corresponding volumes. We check the Storage Quotas on the Exchange 2019 DB as well to make sure that they match or exceed the quotas that we have documented in part 1.
  • Create and modify the required connectors. Test the mail flow between a test mailbox on the Exchange 2019 server and the mailboxes on the legacy Exchange 2013 server. Change the name resolution and perform the actual switch of the mailflow. Test the normal functionality.
  • Demonstrate the different approaches for moving the mailboxes and outline their advantages and disadvantages. Move the arbitration and Discover Search mailboxes to Exchange 2019 server.
  • Demonstrate different ways to organize and move the user mailboxes in batches, including the option to complete the move requests after work hours, to minimize the impact on the clients.
  • Migrate and validate the migration of the public folders to Exchange 2019 server.
  • Enable and validate the new transport protocol – MAPI over HTTP.
  • Decommission the legacy Exchange 2013 server and perform a final validation.

In this Screencast Part 2: Upgrade Exchange 2013 to Exchange 2019, we complete the upgrade from Exchange 2013 to Exchange 2019. This is the second and last part of the two-part Screencast. In the first part, we go through the obligatory health checks of the existing Active Directory and Exchange organization, and we pay attention to the most common mistakes and issues that you might have.
In the second part, we perform the actual migration of the resources and switch the mailflow alongside with the required health checks and validation procedures. In addition, we enable and validate MAPI over HTTP.

For your convenience, the text file with the commands and the plan that we follow is available for download on the Screencast page.
