Introduction to Exchange 2007 Server Roles

Exchange 2007 introduces a new concept to Exchange organizations, the concept of server roles. Similar to how a Windows server can host one or more roles, this type of configuration has been implemented in Exchange Server 2007. Introduction Server roles allow an administrator to split the functions of an Exchange server and place each role, or a combination of roles, on different servers in the organization. This can be done for performance reasons, management reasons, or any other reason deemed necessary by the organization’s policies.

Installing Exchange 2007 into a Small Business Server 2003 domain Part 1 – Preparing and Installing

Introduction When I told the Microsoft SBS technical support team that I was writing this article, they thought I was crazy. Karan Rustagi said, “We’re never gonna get a support call for SBS 2003 with Exchange 2007.” Well, that’s fighting talk where I come from! Having said that, I tend to agree with them. Exchange 2007, by definition, is not really an SBS product, it is designed to have different roles off-loaded to different server boxes, although it can be installed on just one server. Conversely, SBS is designed to run on one server box. The final release of Exchange 2007 is only available in 64bit. Is there a 64bit SBS? If so, I’ve never seen any of my customers with a 64bit SBS server. So it’s not really possible to install Exchange 2007 directly on Small Business Server at present, but always good to keep the SBS technical support …
