Been looking at Exchange 2010. It installed OK on Windows 2008 R2 Beta and seemed to run OK. I have come across a few issues:
- Exchange Management Console doesn’t start properly and doesn’t run properly
- The new Remote PowerShell functionality doesn’t work (against Windows 7)
I think this is due to trying to work two betas together. I’m going to put Exchange 2010 onto Windows 2008 SP1 and see what happens when I use PowerShell CTP 3 against it.
Apart from the Exchange 2010 looks good. The way Exchange 2010 uses PowerShell has changed significantly – especially for remote access. Really makes remote PowerShell the way to go.
I hope that the RTM timings can be sorted so that Exchange 2010 RTM will work properly on Windows 2008 R2. Be a big shame to have to wait for Ex 2010 SP1 for this combination.
