Default How to run BES with both Exchange 2003 and Exchange 2007

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I had a Exchange 2003 and BES 4.1.6.16, I then installed a Exchange 2007, gave the BESAdmin full Exchange admin rights + Send as/recive as rights.

I then tryed to install: "Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client and Collaboration Data Objects 1.2.1" On the BES

But got the message: "Messaging API and Collaboration Data Objects 1.2.1 -- Messaging API and Collaboration Data Objects 1.2.1 cannot be installed with this version of Microsoft Exchange."

How do I solve this?

Is it possible to run a BES with both Exchange 2003/7?


Looking forward to hera from an expert.

First you need to remove exchange 2003 from the BES, there is a limited of install of it that was required for BES and exchange 2003. Then after that's uninstalled then you would install the MAPI Client stuff for exchange 2007.

Hi Jeff

Just to make sure I got it right.

If I uninstall exchange 2003 tools, and install 2007 tools. the BES will work with both the Exchange 2003 and 2007 server?

thanks for your help.

Does exchange 2007 tools require a 64 bit OS like exchange server 2007 does?

Does anyone have any updated information regarding using both Exchange 2k3 and Exchange 2k7 (x64) with the Bes (v.4.1.6)?

This thread is the only confirmation i've found that it can support both versions however I'm not 100% clear on how to proceed.

Thanks,

Download from MS CDO 1.2.1 and you should be fine for both 2003 and 2007.

I am not 100% sure of my exposure but I am running Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2007 with Exchange 2003 on the BES (4.1.6) when I introduced Exchange 2007 I did nothing other than ensure that the access permissions were properly applied to the E2K7 boxes. A few thousand exchange mailboxes a couple hundred devices and so far so good. but a little worried......

The 2003 ESM can be used with 2007 if it is a high enough version.

By using CDO 1.2.1 no ESM is needed anymore.

Your pick, best to match CDO on BES with same version that latest Exchange is running.
