Exchange 2010, Microsoft, Windows Server 2008 R2

Windows Server 2008 R2 RC and Exchange 2010 Beta

Well. This is just a short update.
I tried to install Exchange 2010 Beta onto Windows Server 2008 R2 RC today. It gave me some garbage – MICROSOFT EXCHANGE SERVER 2010 BETA IS NOT SUPPORTED ON THIS VERSION OF WINDOWS. INSTALL SERVER 2008 R2 BETA 7000.
Of course, RC is 7100.

Workaround: Edit the registry and alter HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\

BuildLab, BuildLabEx, CurrentBuild, CurrentBuildNumber

.. to reflect 7000 instead of 7100.

Summary: 10 item(s). 10 succeeded, 0 failed.

OK. Seems that there are various errors when using the management tools on the server.
The actual Exchange services themselves seem to be running OK.
Unfortunately, I don’t have an x64 desktop OS, so I can’t install the mangement tools at this time. I will verify when I can.

An example of one of these errors:

  1. I just finished trying to install it then. I have the same problem with the console. Haven’t found a work around yet! If you manage to find one will appreciate it if you posted it on your blog 😀
