Building Office Communications Server solutions with a Software + Services Model

March 25, 2010 By: Yann Espanet Category: Webcast

“From a platform perspective, Office Communications Server 2007 R2 allows you to build call control and call management services. OCS 2007 R2 also provides a federation feature to allow you to securely deploy your UC solutions in a Software + Services model. As an example, Jon Rauschenberger (CTO of Clarity Consulting) describes how Clarity Connect was built on OCS 2007 R2 using the UC platform SDKs and deployed using a Software + Services federation model.”

Evaluate Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Release Candidate on Windows 2008 R2

August 27, 2009 By: Yann Espanet Category: Exchange 2010, Webcast

You can download Exchange Server 2010 Release Candidate to the Microsoft Download Center!

This is the build number 14.00.0639.011 and you can download it from here :  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=c6d27da1-ba2c-4570-a491-c0d7b39ede8b

This build is compatible with both Windows 2008 SP2 and Windows 2008 R2 (from RC1 through to RTM). As we changed the store schema between the Exchange Beta and RC, there’s no in-place upgrade from the Beta release. However, we will support in-place upgrade from the Release Candidate through to the final RTM build.

Exchange 2010 and Upgrades from Windows 2008 R2 RC1 (build 7100) to RTM (build 7600)

You can upgrade the R2 operating system of a server that currently has Exchange 2010 installed. The steps are as follows:

ii.                   Upgrade Exchange 2010 to R4 DF-Final

iv.                 Insert the Windows 2008 R2 RTM (build 7600) installation media and choose ‘Upgrade’

v.                   After several restarts, the server should now be upgraded

vi.                 Copy your saved-off wsmanconfig_schema.xml file to c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\config\schema\

NOTE: In-place upgrades of Exchange 2010 servers running Windows 2008 SP2, to Windows 2008 R2 are not tested or supported.

Active Directory Configuration
