Exchange Server 2007 will be supported on Windows Server 2008 R2

Hi Folks,

If you are planning to upgrade your entire infrastructure to Windows Server 2008 R2, then Exchange Server 2007 (in case you still have it :)) won’t be an issue. Today, it was posted a note about that in the MSExchangeTeam, as follows:

We always talk about listening to customers and sometimes this is written off by many as ‘marketing speak’. In fact, we do take feedback seriously and no input is more important to our engineering processes than your voice.

Earlier this year we made a decision in one direction, and due to the feedback we have received on this blog and elsewhere, we have reconsidered. In the coming calendar year we will issue an update for Exchange 2007 enabling full support of Windows Server 2008 R2. We heard from many customers that this was important for streamlining their operations and reducing administrative challenges, so we have changed course and will add R2 support. We are still working through the specifics and will let you know once we have more to share on the timing of this update.

Talking about Windows Server 2008 R2 and UC products, at this point OCS 2007 R2 is not supported on Windows Server 2008 R2, so keep your OCS infrastructure running on Windows Server 2008 for now. :)
