Exchange 2010 RTM to SP2


  • I'm preparing to upgrade Exchange 2010 from RTM to SP2, and I get a warning about the Recipient Update Service not being found. 

    I assume this is because we upgraded to 2010 from 2003, and there are still remnants of 2003?  Is this something I need to be concerned about? 

    Everything I've read about remedying the issue refer to previous versions of Exchange (Using System Manager, etc).  Is there a way I can clear the remnants of 2003 to make this go away, or is it not even a concern?

  • If you still haven#t got 2003 anymore then you can create an EAP in (Email address policy) exchange 2010.

    You can continue with the install.

  • What will the EAP do?  Will it be required to create after installing SP2 for everything to continue working properly?

  • It will manage your email stamping for recipients.

  • The upgrade to SP2 will continue, this is just a warning.

    Also see Managing E-Mail Address Policies for more info on EAPs in 2010.

  • Hi
       If your have enough boxes, please install new exchange 2010 sp2 and move mailbox from RTm to sp2. 
       I meet EMC problem when i update RTM to sp2 in my test environment.
       It is just suggestion.

  • I've done the upgrade to SP2 from SP1 on over a 20 systems without any issues. So I would not recommend going though the work needed to setup a second MBX server and then moving mailboxes to it.
