Hello all, let’s say you have an Exchange environment and you want to migrate it to Exchange 2010. You know what you should do but there is that nagging feeling like you are forgetting something. Or maybe you just want someone to double check the steps you have laid out. This tool is easy to use and quite thorough.
You start off with three options. From there you tell it where you are upgrading from, and finally a few questions to tweak the details. Unless you have an overly complex environment the system should spit out solid check list of each step with detailed information on how to do each step. You can print, email or download the list for future use.
Microsoft’s documentation department, or whichever department it was, has done an awesome job on this tool. I can only hope that they do more checklists like this one.
