Product Description

From the Back Cover

Exchange Server 2010 is the latest incarnation of Microsoft's messaging and
collaboration platform, and it comes with a lot of new, compelling features. It is
the seventh major version of the product, and it rolls out some important changes
together with plenty of small improvements. Even better, a lot of complex issues
from previous versions have been solved, or simply removed, making the
administrator's life much easier!

As a trainer and consultant, I know exactly how chaotic and frustrating major platform
upgrades can be, especially when they need to happen seamlessly. Having watched
Exchange Server evolve over the last 14 years, I've seen SysAdmins confronting the
same problems again and again. I've also seen how big a difference it makes to have
a straight-forward, simple guide to the `brave new world' that each new
platform promises.

This book is that straight-forward and, above all, practical guide to Exchange Server
2010, and I've aimed to give Systems Administrators everything they need to get
started as soon as it's available. Inside, you'll fi nd step-by-step guides to installation,
coexistence scenarios with Exchange Server 2003 & 2007, managing your new
Exchange server, and information on the new High Availability features.

Of course there's so much more I could talk about - new management, compliancy and
Unified Messaging features, for a start - but this is a guide to getting you up-andrunning,
as fast as possible.

If you're about to embark upon, or through work necessity be forced into installing/migrating previous versions of Exchange into the all new Exchange 2010 version, then this book will see you happily from Start to Finish. The 180 pages breeze by like having a timely conversation with a truly knowledgeable consultant.

For those looking for answers and a quick way to exchange 2010 nirvanna, you'll save yourself a good few hours or even days of googling technet articles and surreptitious blogs of dubious information.

My only wish, was that a few more technical authors were like this one. Without prejudice or politics, just simply concerned in getting from point A) to point B) in the easiest most hassle free way possible.

I look forward to his next publication soon.

If you are about to install Exchange 2010 and are used to 2003 then this book is a must read. I wasted 2 days trying to get 2010 to work with 2003. Some of the concepts are very different and the documentation is too complex to find answers quickly. This book, on the other hand, provides just the level of information required to keep you out of trouble and enough background for you to grasp the new concepts. If you are a full time Exchange administrator then you might want to move on to a more in depth book later but I would still recommend that you read this first. It is small but beautifully formed and well worth the price. There are many books that just rehash the help but this one really is a practical guide.

This would be a good book to read before installing Exchange 2010. It is not heavy going like most other manuals. However, it does miss out many essential elements, for example:

It has a short section on the new archive function, but it does not explain how to access the archive mailboxes once created. It does not cover the complex licensing system, which in my opinion is absolutely key in any practical approach to Microsoft software. For example, in order to access the archives one requires an Office 2010 Pro Plus licence for each user, and as far as I am aware you cannot upgrade from an Office or Office Pro licence. It does not cover precisely which functions require an Enterprise CAL and which do not. Critically for planning purposes does the Default Archive Tag require an ECAL or not?

It does not warn the installer that the new 2010 log file system can easily generate log files more than 3 times the total size of the mailboxes, and so if you do not set up Windows Server Backup ( "WSB" ) before you start migrating mailboxes you will soon run out of disc space. WSB is mentioned, but not until page 173 - by which time it could be too late.

It does not cover the ideal partition sizes and content for a single server setup, so you will probably have to migrate things around after the initial installation unless you do your own research on this first.

Having said all that, I am not able to recommend a better book on Exchange 2010 - only the Microsoft Technet site, which can be heavy going. At the price this book is probably worth buying if you are still in the planning stage. It will save you time, even if it does not have all the answers you will need.

Like it's title simple effective and erm pratical and none of the Microsoft press waffle!
Operating in mixed environment of 2k3 2k7 and 2010, this book has been most helpful with commissioning/decommissioning projects.

I am an Exchange Admin from way back, familiar with Exchange 2003/2007. This book helped me understand the new concepts in Exchange 2010. I would recommend it for anyone who wants a quick understanding of the differences between 2003/2007 and 2010. I wouldn't recommend it for someone who has no prior Exchange experience as it assumes a lot of knowledge.

Great work by the Author, this was precisely the kind of book I was looking for!

For someone new to MS Exchange this a very clear read,it does not descend into technobabble like some books but explains things in clear language. I think this is probably the best technical reference I have ever read.
