FREE! @Exchange 2010 – A Practical Approach ebook

Posted by chrisbeams on October 29, 2009

Spotted this on Pauls excellent blog –

It’s a 195 PDF doc with five chapters:

Chapter 1 is an overall chapter, what’s new in Exchange Server 2010 and what has deprecated with respect to Exchange Server 2007. Also there’s some information regarding Active Directory, the three containers in Active Directory and some information regarding Active Directory sites;

Chapter 2 is an installation chapter dealing with a fresh installation of Exchange Server 2010 and the subsequent basic confi guration to get it up-and-running;

Chapter 3 is the coexistence chapter and I probably deals with most scenarios; installing Exchange Server 2010 in an existing Exchange Server 2003 or Exchange Server 2007 environment;

Chapter 4 is about managing the Exchange environment using the Exchange Management Console, the Exchange Management Shell and the Exchange Control Panel. And real cool in Exchange Server 2010 are the remote options in PowerShell version 2;

Chapter 5 is the high availability chapter. It deals with the new continuous replication when using Database Availability Groups, the best Exchange Server high availability solution ever made.
