Exchange 2007 CCR SP2 to Exchange 2010 SP1 migration into the same hardware RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Experts,

    This is a deployment scenario. Please suggest best possible solution for this...!

    We have Exchange 2007 SP2 in CCR environment in 2 sites

    Site A:

    1 Mailbox server (MBX1)

    1 HUB\CAS server(HUB1)

    1 Edge Server(EDGE1)

    Site B:

    1 Mailbox Server (MBX2)

    1 HUB\CAS (HUB2)

    1 Edge Server (EDGE2)

    Mailbox Servers in CCR

    HUB\CAS Servers in NLB


    Now we need to migrate\upgrade to Exchange 2010 SP1

    Management want to use the same h\w but given option for leasing addtitional h\w if required in the Transition process

    So now I have 6 servers+Planning to lease additional servers for 2 months to start transition

    Advice me,

    1.Using additional leased h\w I will start migration

    2.After the transition over how can i rebuild the Own h\w for housing the 2010 SP1

    3.What is the best practice to carry over this with no down time.


    Please awaiting your valuable ideas!
