    Does Mr Royal or someone else care to inform us if exchange 2010 will also be built on powershell?

    Thanks for the link!

    Booooooo

    I'm still trying to get up to speed on 2007. I was hoping they go with another four-year gap.

    Yea, Powershell will remain. Powershell 2.0 will be included with Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7, so it's safe to say that it's going to be with us from here on out (or at least until something better comes along).

    Yes it will be built upon Powershell 2.0 this time around. The major changes in Ex2007 like the different roles appear to be the same.

    I would say this upgrade is more in line with Ex2000 to Ex 2003.

    I was discourged to see that the download does not include a 32 bit version for testing or running labs. Or I just couldn't find it.

    Powershell is now a part of the engineering criteria for all new MS products.

    I thought this was going to be more of an evolution vs a revolution and they would go with the 2007 R2 name. After reveiwing some articles on technet, a lot has changed. No more LCR, SCC or storage groups. Now we have Database Availability Groups and tigheter integration with OCS.

    LOL! No, I was saying it's actually official policy all new Microsoft server products absolutely MUST have full PowerShell functionality from here on out. That's why W2K8 R2 for example had to have AD cmdlets for example. Microsoft development teams don't have a choice anymore.

    But there is good news, because with 2010
    Multiple server roles can co-exist on servers that provide high availability. This enables small organizations to deploy a two-server configuration provides full redundancy of mailbox data, while also providing redundant Client Access and Hub Transport services.

    Sounds like it will be easier but I wouldn't exactly call it intimidating.

    I use LCR only as an added bonus though, so I suppoooose...

    ... note to those out there trying it on VMWare ESXi, I just tried to load it on my DL380G5 box that had a plain jane x64 2008 setup and it bombed out stating that it was not supported.

    Any success in VMWare yet?

    I have to admit that we're excited about the new version of Exchange at our work. It'll be the first version designed with Windows Server 2008 in mind, which is all we run. So, yeah, we'll be testing out the beta.

    I wonder what this will look like:

    In Exchange 2010, Role Based Access Control (RBAC) has replaced the permissions model that was used in Exchange 2007. RBAC lets you define extremely broad or extremely precise roles and assignments based on the roles of your administrators and users, and the tasks they perform. Access to the cmdlets and parameters required to perform a task is granted by assigning the related RBAC management role to a user or universal security group. If you want to grant an administrator or user the ability to perform tasks in Exchange 2010, you must either add the administrator or user to a universal security group that already has been assigned a specific RBAC role, or you must assign the role directly to the administrator or user.

    Also gone is Single Instance Storage in the database.
    As an added feature, the store will now compress attachments (and perhaps entire messages?) to save space.

    Windows IT Pro has an interesting First Look article:

    Why would you want to get rid of SIS in any situation? Wouldnt this make your storage requirements explode? I thought I understood SIS to be a single copy of the data in the database and everyone that uses that database has a reference to that data as opposed to a duplicate of if in their mailbox. Have I been horribly off? Please help my limited Newtonian prone brain.

    Exchange 2007 (and later) best practices dictate that you will likely end up with numerous databases (to keep the DB size of each one under 200MB) and since SIS only works on a single database and not across storage groups it's not doing much these days. Attachment compression is actually going to save more space going forward.

    And keep in mind SIS is highly overrated. At best you usually only end up saving on average 10%. Even in products such as Enterprise Vault which is far more likely to have SIS scenarios, you don't save as much as you'd think.

    I have seen SIS save 37% in a database, but that was a special case. The users in that particular database sent large attachments to multiple people all the time (something the new 'Mail Tips' will bark about) so SIS seemed to really work for them. However SIS doesn't help when people delete messages. If I send a 5MB attachment to 10 people, its only 5MB in the DB. If 9 of them delete it, then it's still 5MB in the DB. Your email hoarders eat up space that SIS can't help with but compression will always apply.

    Trying to plan DB layouts with SIS as a primary concern leads to some questionable design decisions. Keeping all of a department's users in one DB will maximize SIS, but if that DB is offline for any reason then the entire department is without email. Splitting the users across multiple DBs and servers is a better high availability choice but it lessens the impact of SIS.
