2007 RU procedure RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm new to an existing MS Exc 2007 two node cluster and it needs some tender loving care. First off:

    On Exchange server 2007 RU 4
    Exchange Server 2007Version: 08.03.0192.001

    I'm going to be doing the latest RU to 17 sp3, question can I just do the latest and greatest on the passive node then failover after reboot and repeat process? What is the Best practice and steps please.

    Also we had issues two days ago where mail was extremely slow and another engineer failed over to the passive node, but here are the errors received:

  • You're talking about a clustered mailbox server?  There's a very specific process you must take to update it and if you don't do it right you'll screw it up.
