  • Installation of Exchange 2007

    Hi There,

    Currently We have our Domain Level at Windows 2003 and Forest Level is Windows 2000.
    Now We want to introduce Exchange 2007 in our organization. What is the recommended way to proceed ?

    1) Do We need to raise forest level ?
    2) Can we install Exchange 2007 on Windows 2008. If yes then What should be functional levels ?
    3) Can we install Exchange 2007 first and then Upgrade our AD and Forest to Windows server 2008.?
    4)Should we Upgrade Our AD and forest to 2008 First and then Install Exchange server 2007


    Thanks in Advance.

    As long as you are at Windows 2000 native then Exchange 2007 will install.
    The more important question is whether you have any Windows 2000 domain controllers.
    If you do not, and they are all Windows 2003 then I would probably switch the domain and forest up to Windows 2003, but that is just me.

    Simon.

          The forest must be at least 2000 so 2008 is fine.

              Two threads merged so a couple of the posts are out of sequence however both threads were the same related questions by the same OP.

              This was not a double post and swap_101982 made 2 threads since the questions appeared different. (Hope that made sense......time to go sleepies)
              1 1 was a racehorse.
              2 2 was 1 2.
              1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
              2 2 1 1 2
