Our school has just upgraded to Exchange Server 2010. Unable to afford the time and expense for training courses for our technicians, reference books are quite important. This book is easy to dip into, to address areas as a first port of call or when you become stuck or unsure of the way ahead. It quickly helps solve many queries and problems and can provide a springboard for any further research, if necessary. I found this a very useful and helpful book.

This is not a pocket guide. The only reason that it can be called a pocket consultant is because the text is so small. I would rather have a bigger book with bigger text.

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 579 - 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.

Far too much space is wasted on Powershell commands. People research these online on Microsoft Technet or elsewhere, so that they can copy and paste the commands and then edit them if necessary. No-one is going to type these out unless there is no alternative. I would rather have a more compete coverage of essential elements than pages of long Powershell commands printed out.

Up to now I have not found anything which I have needed in this book which is not also in the much more accessible Practical Approach to Exchange 2010 book.
