Exchange 2010 Architecture Diagrams Available for Download

October 25th, 2010 No comments

Those who remember the print version of TechNet Magazine will recall the giant posters you’d sometimes get showing the architecture of various products such as Windows Server, SQL, and Exchange. When the print version of TechNet was stopped, many thought we’d seen the end of these valuable tools. Well, that’s not the case. The Exchange product group has released the Exchange 2010 Architecture poster. This downloadable .pdf file is in the same format as the print versions, and it’s huge. A wealth of information is contained on it. Now, to find a printer that can handle it!

Also, the product group released released the Exchange 2010 Transport Architecture Diagrams. The two diagrams available there cover Hub Transport Role Architecture and Hub Transport Extensibility.

If you’re looking for the 2007 poster, it can be found at Exchange Server 2007 Component Architecture.

Update Rollup 1 (UR1) for Exchange Server 2010 SP1 Released

October 7th, 2010 No comments

Microsoft has released the following update rollup for Exchange Server 2010:

  • Update Rollup 1 for Exchange Server 2010 SP1 (2407028)

If you’re running Exchange Server 2010 SP1, you need to apply Update Rollup 1 for Exchange 2010 to address the issues listed below.

Remember, you only need to download the latest update for the version of Exchange that you’re running.

Here is a list of the fixes included in update rollup 1:

  1. 2028967 Event ID 3022 is logged and you still cannot replicate a public folder from one Exchange Server 2010 server to another
  2. 2251610 The email address of a user is updated unexpectedly after you run the Update-Recipient cmdlet on an Exchange Server 2010 server
  3. 978292 An IMAP4 client cannot send an email message that has a large attachment in a mixed Exchange Server 2010 and Exchange Server 2003 environment

Download the rollup here.

Microsoft also announced that UR2 for Exchange 2010 SP1 should be released in early December.

Installation Notes:

If you haven’t installed Exchange Server yet, you can use the info at Quicker Exchange installs complete with service packs and rollups to save you some time.

Microsoft Update can’t detect rollups for Exchange 2010 servers that are members of a Database Availability Group (DAG). See the post Installing Exchange 2010 Rollups on DAG Servers for info, and a script, for installing update rollups.

Update Rollups should be applied to Internet facing Client Access Servers before being installed on non-Internet facing Client Access Servers.

If you’re installing the update rollup on Exchange servers that don’t have Internet access, see “Installing Exchange 2007 & 2010 rollups on servers that don’t have Internet access” for some additional steps.

Also, the installer and Add/Remove Programs text is only in English – even when being installed on non-English systems.

Note to Forefront users:

If you don’t disable Forefront before installing a rollup or service pack, and enable afterwards, you run the risk of Exchange related services not starting. You can disable Forefront by going to a command prompt and navigating to the Forefront directory and running FSCUtility /disable. To enable Forefront after installation of a UR or SP, run FSCUtility /enable.
