OCS 2007 CWA and OCS 2007 R2 Deployment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    We are going to deploy the OCS 2007 to our environment which we have LCS 2005 SP1 and LCS 2005 CWA alreay. Also, we have Blackberry Server 5.0 to our environment. As I saw that OCS 2007 CWA R2 has comiblility issue for the blackberry server, the workaround solution is to deploy the OCS 2007 CWA first then OCS 2007 R2 then. And all our domain controller is 32bit 2003 server based.

    The below is high-level procedure we will follow, is there any thing I miss if we want to coesixt the LCS 2005 SP1 and LCS 2005 SP1 CWA?

    1. We will first do the schema prep for the OCS 2007 R1

    2. Deploy the OCS 2007 R1 CWA to Windows 32bit server (Can we use Windows Server 2008 SP2 32bit server?)

    3. Do the schema prep, forest prep and domain prep for OCS 2007 R2

    4. Deploy the OCS 2007 R2 without CWA to Windows Server 2008 R2 (As there have compatibility issue with W2k8 R2, we have to follow microsoft website to apply the fix)

    5. Migrate LCS 2005 SP1 user to OCS 2007 R2

    6. After the migration completed, remove LCS 2005 SP1 and LCS 2005 SP1 CWA.
