  • Upgrade SP3 on Exch 07

    Hi Team,

    I need to upgrade sp3 to my exchange 07 environment, but I need some help or instruction on the best method of doing this. The last time I upgrade to sp2, I almost break the exchange 07 and I have to called microsoft .

    here is what I have.

    1 CAS server (CAS/Hub Transport server)

    2 Database server(cluster), Windows 03 cluster.

    so 3 servers total, 1 is holding cas and hub role, the other 2 are datase server with cluster environment.

    Thanks,
    HN

    Upgrade the CAS Server, reboot. Install the latest rollup reboot.
    On the cluster, upgrade the passive, reboot. Install the latest rollup.
    Failover cluster, repeat on the active.

    If you want a more comprehensive list, then this article explains everything, just replace SP1 with SP3, the process is the same.

        Hello Team,

        I'm having issue here..
        I successfully upgrade CAS/HUB server to SP3 with rollup 1
        I successfully upgrade passive node for the database to sp3 with rollup 1

        but whhen I try to move my dataname -mail to the passive node after the sp3 installation. it won't move. It give me a failed stated.
        but I move the cluster group fine.

        is there anything else I need to do inorder to move the cluster group and database virtual name to the passive node with the later sp? I need to finish upgrade the active node to sp3 with roll up1.

        I did follow the link below step by step carefully.. Im not sure what am I missing..
        I did reboot the passive node after the installation.. but it still didnt work.

        WHen I run the Stop-clustermailboxserver command on the passive node, it telling me that it's cannot find in the domain controller.. but I can ping that server from the domain controller.
