Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What migration scenarios are covered by this guide?

A: The Exchange Server 2003 to 2010 Migration Guide covers the migration from Exchange Server 2003 to Exchange Server 2010 for an example organization spanning two locations; a head office and one branch office.

The head office consists of an Exchange front-end server, an Exchange back-end server, and an ISA Server firewall.  The branch office consists of a single Exchange server. The guide walks through the process of upgrading each of these locations to Exchange Server 2010.

Got more than one branch office?  No problem, just repeat the branch office steps for as many different locations as you have.
