I have some question regarding upgradING of Exchange Server 2000 Environment to Exchange Server 2007. Do I need to just upgrade or install a new Exchange Server into an existing organization? I also want to ask about the different versions of Exchange Server 2007.
Upgrading Exchange Server 2000 to 2007
When upgrading from Exchange 2000 environment to Exchange 2007, there are strong reasons to install the whole process rather than upgrade. This is because the mail management is affected as Exchange 2000 mailbox management is done through the Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC) snap-in extension for Exchange.
Exchange 2007 mailbox management is done through the Exchange 2007 Exchange management shell or the Exchange management console GUI. Running mails from the Exchange 2000 might not function well and you could get error messages.
There are two types of Exchange server 2007 32-bit and 64-bit.
32 – bit.
The 32 – bit version would be used in non-production environments.
64 – bit.
64 – bit version would be used in production environments.
