Microsoft Improves Exchange Server for 2007 -- The Learning Curve is Big, and The Benefits Are Too

Exchange 2007 is an incredible product. You’ll really enjoy all its new features and enhancements.

But note: you can’t upgrade to it from previous Exchange versions; you must migrate. That's why the design process is so important.

This video series dramatically lowers the Exchange 2007 learning curve. Trainer Peter Bruzzese systematically takes you through all the design features of Exchange 2007, including step-by-step instruction on migration from older versions.

Peter shows you how to:
# Design solutions for your new messaging system setup.
# Design in active directory.
# Address hardware/software concerns as you get your Exchange servers up and running.
# Work through problem scenarios and learn solutions.
# Understand managed content settings and security.
# And much more.

Here's what you'll learn in each of the Exchange 2007 Design videos:

Video 1 – “Introduction”

Video 2 - “Setting the Design Stage” - This nugget explains the necessity of Design for your Exchange deployments. Five scenarios are presented for you to consider, covering all exam topics. Requirements are listed but solutions are not provided. You will find solutions at the end of the series in the final nugget.

Video 3 - “Designing AD for Exchange 2007 Deployments” - This nugget explains the necessary concerns you must keep in mind before installing your first Exchange 2007 Server. Concerns on how to work from a forest and/or domain standpoint, where to place Global Catalog servers, DNS and routing concerns, and ensuring your Active Directory is prepared for the schema changes and domain configuration changes.

Video 4 - “Evaluate and Plan Your Server Deployment” - This nugget focuses on server placement and roles. Which server should you install first in your deployments and where do these servers belong in terms of the network perimeter and the internal network.

Video 5 - “Designing Your Exchange Servers” - This nugget focuses on the hardware and software concerns for your Mailbox and Non-Mailbox Exchange Servers. Concerns about storage, memory, processor and so forth will be discussed in-depth so you can make reasonable hardware design decisions.

Video 6 - “Public Folder Design” - This nugget explains the new rationale in Exchange 2007 toward Public Folders, which have been “de-emphasized” in Exchange. We will explain what that means, and review replicas and referrals.

Video 7 - “Reviewing High Availability Options” - This nugget reviews the various solutions at your disposal for High Availability, including Local Continuous Replication (LCR), Cluster Continuous Replication (CCR) and Single Copy Clusters (SCC). We also explain the value and necessity of Service Level Agreements (SLAs) with vendors and/or clients.

Video 8 - “Define a High Availability Solution” - This nugget offers you a variety of design scenarios to ponder with a focus on those concepts that repeatedly present themselves on the exam.

Video 9 - “Disaster Recovery Solutions” - This nugget reviews the basics of backups, including terminology and theory. We will also walk you through both Mailbox and Non-Mailbox solution possibilities.

Video 10 - “Designing a Disaster Recovery Solution” - This nugget presents design scenarios that may confront you on the exam, including explanation of little exam nuances and how to work around specific issues. We will also review scenarios where Disaster Recovery is combined with other solutions, like a High Availability solution.

Video 11 - “Content Settings” - This nugget reviews the design theory and practical step-by-step implementation of both Managed Default Folders and Managed Custom Folders.

Video 12 - “Journal and Transport Rules” - This nugget explains the use of journaling and transport rules. We demonstrate how to implement these types of message control and review when to use one type over another.

Video 13 - “Planning for Unified Messaging” - In this nugget we discuss the features provided through Unified Messaging. We explain the hardware concerns you will have in your design, as well as the installation and configuration process.

Video 14 - “Designing Security Part 1” - This nugget explains the use of administrative security including permissions and message flow restrictions.

Video 15 - “Designing Security Part 2” - In this nugget we focus on the Edge Transport server role with Anti-Spam and Anti-virus design concerns. We also take a look into the Microsoft-offered hosted solutions.

Video 16 - “Routing Design Decisions” - In this nugget we are going to discuss a few changes we can make within our message routing infrastructure to ensure we have smooth transfer of messages from one end of our organization to the other. The discussion will begin with an overview of default routing topologies and site costs, and then we will discuss the use of Hub sites, changing site costs and the use of distribution list servers to improve routing.

Video 17 - “Designing Accepted, Authoritative and Relay Domains” - This nugget reviews a few design terms that may present themselves on the exam and what those terms mean in relation to server placement and how messages route. We discuss authoritative domains, as well as internal and external relay domains.

Video 18 - “Design an Exchange 2003 to 2007 Strategy (Part 1)” - In this nugget we will review the terminology involved in performing upgrades from previous versions of Exchange over to 2007, including the migration approach from a non-Microsoft messaging system, or an Exchange 5.5 system.

Video 19 - “Design an Exchange 2003 to 2007 Strategy (Part 2)” - Moving forward from the previous nugget, this nugget explains the procedure for transitioning from Exchange 2000 or 2003 over to Exchange 2007. Which servers to deploy first? How to handle a period of co-existence. And finally, decommissioning your Exchange 2K or 2K3 Servers.

Video 20 - “Design Finalization” - This nugget discusses the methodology involved in organizing your design, presenting your design for approval and documenting the final decisions that are decided upon by all involved.

Video 21 - “Design Scenario Solutions” - This nugget takes us back to the 5 design scenarios we were presented with in the first nugget and the requirements called for, but this time we review solutions. No doubt by the time you’ve been through the entire series of nuggets, you won’t need me to tell you the solutions, you will already know exactly how to proceed.
