Exchange 2010 and 2007 Coexisting with EV 9.04 Archiving
I have just setup a new exchange 2010 server. A single server with no DAG and have all three roles (CAS, HUB and mailbox).
I have moved two test mailboxes from exchange 2007 to exchange 2010 server for testing purpose. We are running EV 9.0.4 and I would like test out EV functionality. The EV server has Outlook client 2007 installed with SP3.
What are the steps I need to take to make sure archiving works properly on 2010 test mailboxes?
I tried adding exchange 2010 server in EV 9.0.4 but not sure which options I need to select. This new server will host everything and we are looking to retire exchange 2007 servers however currently it is only holding two test boxes. I checked properties of Exchange 2007 server in EV and do not see an option to select Exchange Public Folder Task and Exchange Journaling Task. So I am not sure if I can make selecting later on when I setup Exchange Journaling on 2010. Thanks
Yes you would move the
Yes you would move the EVAdmin's mailbox from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010.
Moving it will not impact your Exchange 2007 servers UNLESS you have an Exchange Archiving Task that is using the EVAdmin mailbox as the system mailbox.
So for instance if you have ExchServerA and you are using your EVAdmin mailbox as the Tasks's System Mailbox, when you move that mailbox elsewhere, that task will then fail. If that is the case, create a system mailbox for that Exchange Server, set the task to run using that new mailbox and then you can move the EVAdmin mailbox to Exchange 2010.
But other than that, there will be no impact, because again for Exchange 2003 and 2007, the EVAdmin never needed a mailbox, it is only a recent requirement
