Πολύ καλό και επεξηγηματικό άρθρο απο τον συνήθη ύποπτο Ben Appleby :   During the beta of Office 365 for Enterprises, we received great feedback from our customers and wanted to vastly simplify the process for configuring Exchange in a hybrid deployment with Office 365. We are introducing the Hybrid Configuration Wizard in Exchange 2010 Service Pack 2 to refine the deployment process as a result of that feedback. What is the Hybrid Configuration Wizard?

A fix for the interoperability issues between Exchange 2007 and 2010 EMC and IE9 is now available!!!!!!!!!

We are happy to report that the fix for the Exchange Management Console issues when IE9 is installed is now available. To be specific, we have talked about this in a previous blog post: Exchange 2007 or 2010 EMC might fail to close with "You must close all dialog boxes before you can close Exchange Management Console" How does this fix need to be applied? In order to install the fix, a released version of IE9 needs to be installed on the machine first. Then: MS11-081: Cumulative Sec

Τι είναι τα Accepted Domains.

Στήνοντας έναν Exchange θα συναντήσετε σε κάποιο σημείο της εγκατάστασης τον όρο accepted domain. Στην περίπτωση που θέλετε ο Exchange σας να λαμβάνει μηνύματα απο τον έξω κόσμο θα πρέπει να ορίσετε μια διεύθυνση συνήθως της μορφής mail.company.gr. Μετά την εγκατάσταση θα παρατηρήσετε στην κονσόλα ότι υπάρχουν 3 τύποι απο Accepted Domains γεγονός που ίσως να μπερδέψει κάποιους. Ας τα δούμε λοιπόν αναλυτικά: Default Accepted Domain Όλα τα accepted domains ( ανεξαρτήτως τύπου ) τα βρίσκουμε

Demystifying Exchange 2010 SP1 Virtualization

It’s been a few months since we announced some major changes to our virtualization support statements for Exchange 2010 (see Announcing Enhanced Hardware Virtualization Support for Exchange 2010). Over that time, I’ve received quite a few excellent questions about particular deployment scenarios and how the changes to our support statements might affect those deployments. Given the volume of questions, it seemed like an excellent time to post some additional information and clarification.

Exchange Powershell Ramp-up

Στο τελευταίο autoexec event στην Θεσσαλονίκη αναφέρθηκα στην δύναμη και την ευκολία που προσφέρει το powershell στην διαχείρηση του Exchange. Επειδή ο χρόνος ήταν λίγος αποφάσισα να συνοψίσω κάποιες βασικές αλλά χρήσιμες εντολές. Ξεκινάμε λοιπόν:   1) Πως μπορούμε να δούμε τα properties του κάθε mailbox object Get-Mailbox | ForEach { $_.Name } 2) Όλα τα services που τρέχουν στον Exchange: Get-Service | where {$_.Status -eq ”Running”} 3) Τα event logs του Exchange:

Single Item Recovery: Όχι πλέον restore από backup!

To Single Item Recovery είναι ένα “κρυφό” feature του  Exchange 2010 που ανήκει στο Exchange 2010’s Native Data Protection concept και μας επιτρέπει προστασία mailboxes χωρίς την ανάγκη ύπαρξης κάποιου Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) backup. Η συγκεκριμένη δυνατότητα υπήρχε και στις προηγούμενες εκδόσεις του Exchange και ήταν γνωστό ως dumpster , στον 2010 όπως θα δούμε έχει βελτιωθεί αισθητά αποκτώντας νέες δυνατότητες και λειτουργίες.

Exchange Server 2010 SP2 and Support for Hosting Exchange

Following this addition, hosters who wish to deploy the standard on-premises configuration of Exchange and use ABP will be supported. As you may have read in a recent post over on the Exchange Partner Marketing blog, our view on whether to host Exchange using Hosting Mode or the standard on-premises configuration is changing in response to feedback we’ve had from both hoste

Witness Server Warning Message When Using Certain Database Availability Group Tasks

Recently, some customers reported that when they create a DAG, they get a warning message that states the following: The Exchange Trusted Subsystem is not a member of the local Administrators group on specified witness server <ServerName>. In these cases, the customer’s intended witness server was not an Exchange 2010 server. As documented in TechNet, if the witness server you specify isn't an Exchange 2010 server, you must add the Exchange Trusted Subsystem (ETS) universa

Announcing the Exchange ActiveSync Logo Program

You’ve told us that one of your top concerns is the increasing diversity of mobile devices that employees use to access your company resources. While many of these devices use Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) for mobile email, we all know that not all EAS clients are created equal. Exchange ActiveSync policies and features aren’t consistently implemented by licensees, so it can be challenging to find out what’s supported on each device. Today, we launched the Exchange ActiveSync Logo Program to esta
