This is Part 2 of our Screencast – How to Upgrade from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010. In Part 1
we have introduced Exchange 2010 SP2 to our existing Exchange 2007 SP3 organization. Still all resources reside on the legacy Exchange 2007 server and e-mail traffic is flowing through it. Remote clients continue using Exchange Server 2007 for OWA, Outlook Anywhere and ActiveSync connectivity.
In Part 2, we continue with Exchange 2010 coexistence scenario. Even if you are planning to perform a quick upgrade over a weekend, being prepared for Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010 coexistence period is the safer and recommended approach.
As usual, we follow our Step-by-step approach, where the whole upgrade is split into seven steps.
For your convenience, we have published the text file with the upgrade plan and commands which we are using in the Screencast here
