Exchange 2007 Testbed with VMware Server

This is an interesting multi-part series of setting up exchange on VMware.

If you have read my previous article [here] about some of the initial thoughts that I have had about the migration, you will have seen that I plan to use a method called “Bunny Hopping” – essentially as I have financial constraints on this migration (e.g I have to use my existing hardware) I have purchased a server which I intend to add into my Exchange organization and then move the mailboxes from one cluster onto it – then re blow the old clusters with Windows 2003 x64 and Exchange 2007 then move the mailboxes back – then repeat the process for the other clusters (long winded I know but the Organisation is not prepared to replace what was £70,000 of new hardware 24 months ago and I can kind of see the reasoning).

Excellent multi-part series! Why I like it?
  • Its detailed
  • It has tips and advices
  • It has print screens here and there
Strongly advised to check this out. Part 1 and Part2.
