We’re on Exchange 2007. Recently we decided to update to Rollup 8. Then, Microsoft recalled that rollup and issued a V2. We were like, okay, well, mistakes happen. Then they recalled that one and issued a v3. At this point we were all WTF is going on with QA at Microsoft? Now we find out that we can’t buy Exchange 2007 or 2010 SA licenses anymore because 2013 has hit RTM. The catch is that we can’t implement 2013 until 6 months from now when Microsoft decides to implement a patch that co-exists with their own products. We all (all 9 admins at my company) think Microsoft is losing it and the quality of their products are starting to decline.

I’m sure within a week we’ll hear that this new rollup 9 was recalled and a v2 of it was released as well. We’re getting scared to deploy updates now. What is going on in Redmond that is causing all these problems?

If anyone is looking to deploy Exchange 2013, one has to wait until Exchange 2010 sp3 before migrating from SBS 2011.  I figure in about 3 years or so Microsoft will have all the pieces in place for a successful migration 😉
