Microsoft® Exchange Server 2003 Deployment and Migration describes everything that you need to know about designing, planning, and implementing an Exchange 2003 environment. The book discusses the requisite infrastructure requirements of Windows 2000 and Windows 2003. Furthermore, this book covers, in detail, the tools and techniques that messaging system planners and administrators will require in order to establish a functioning interoperability environment between Exchange 2003 and previous versions of Exchange including Exchange 5.5 and Exchange 2000. Since Microsoft will drop support for Exchange 5.5 in 2004, users will have to migrate to Exchange 2003. Additionally the book describes various deployment topologies and environments to cater for a multitude of different organizational requirements.
* Details for consultants and system administrators to migrate from older versions of Exchange 5.5 and Exchange 2000
* Critical information on integration with Outlook 2003 and Windows 2003
* Based on actual implementations of both beta and final release versions of Exchange 2003 in larger enterprise environments
"Clearly the topic of migration and deployment is in Kieran's sweet spot. The entire topic is like a fastball floating right down the middle for him because he absolutely hits a home run in this book. He doesn't just talk about what different components are involved with migration and deployment, he describes how everything works and why you might take different approaches in your deployment. It's right on the money!"— Donald Livengood,
Senior Solution Architect (MCSE, MVP, HP Certified Architect), Hewlett-Packard Company
"In his new book, Kieran outlines clear, concise, and crisp guidelines for migration and deployment of Exchange messaging systems. Armed with this generally hard to find knowledge, you'll be prepared for most Exchange 2003 implementation projects. His principles have been well used in the past-not least for the implementation of a 350,000 user Exchange system in my own organization." — Roy Beattie, Messaging and Integration Director, NI Schools C2k Project
"Kieran has been working with us since 1999, originally on the AstraZeneca merger work and more recently on our Exchange 2003 project. This book demonstrates Kieran’s expertise in deployment and migration and is particularly strong on Directory Synchronization, which is a fundamental component of a migration from Exchange 5.5 to 2003. You’ll get quite the level of detail that you need, presented in a format that is easily digestible in this work." -- Dave Cook, Global Messaging Architect, Astra Zeneca Healthcare
