  • Ex03\2008X64 ?

    Hello.. I am looking, and i suspect I know my answer but.

    Can I run Exchange 2003, either standard or enterprise, on a Windows 2008 X64 server ?

    And, if my suspicion is correct, and I cannot run it on 08/64,

    If you had a choice between installing Ex03 on a 2008/32bit server, or running it on a 2003/32bit server, which would you choose ?

    (A full scale migration to 2007 or 2010 is not an option at the moment)

    Hmm. 2003 is not supported on Server 2008, but is supported with 2008 Domain controllers.

    Guess we'll be planning before just implementing..

        I have - we're VMware partners, so we have VMware licenses for free.. however ,the boss wants a physical server for this particular one.

        We're currently on SBS03, but while I guess it IS a suitable operating system, and would work well for a company our size, with the growth we're expecting to experience, the engineers like to chop and play, so full blown 2008 is a better option for us.

        (Again, we're not concerned on licensing regards.. )

          well...if licence is not a problem, Probably one machine with win2008 64bit because of exchange 2007, an another one with 32bit for active directory and minor services or applications would be good.

            hardware's a problem though :P

            i'm currently toying with ways I can do this in my head.. but i'm likely to pass most of the project off to te other engineer so he can learn a bit more about the infrastructure..

              With Exchange 2003 your options are just one.

              Windows 2003 32 bit. (can be R2 though). I don't count Windows 2000 as a valid option any longer.

              If you want to use Windows 2008 or anything x64 then it is Exchange 2007 or Exchange 2010 that are your only options.

              Exchange 2007 is not supported on Windows 2008 R2 though.

                  What?
                  Exchange 2007 is supported on Windows 2008 x64. Exchange 2003 isn't though.
                  It is only Windows 2008 R2 that isn't supported - but that isn't a surprise, since Exchange 2000 the next version of Windows wasn't supported.
