A new solution

A new solution

  • Exchange 2003 launched21st October 2003

    • Designed to work ‘better together’ with Windows Server 2003 & Office System 2003

    • 115m active Exchange users worldwide

  • Focused on improved deployment scenarios

    • Mobile access to information (Outlook, web, PDA, phone)

    • Security & message ‘hygiene’

    • Server & Site Consolidation

    • Management & interoperability

Why get exchange server 2003

Business benefits

Lower cost through server/site consolidation

50% reduction in migration costs (Ferris Research)

Immediate increases in end-user productivity

Co-exists with existing technology and infrastructure

Topology requirements

Topology requirements

  • Exchange 2003 requires Active Directory

    • All user & server configuration information is stored in AD

    • Exchange Servers use “Global Catalog” servers to check addresses

    • Online Outlook clients use Global Catalogs to display address book

  • Exchange 2003 runs on Windows 2000 or Windows 2003

    • In an Active Directory running on either too

    • Some capabilities only work when in Native Mode

    • Improved scalability & flexibility when on Win2003 in Win2003 AD

  • Exchange 5.5 Org & Sites no more

    • Routing Groups – used to control mail flow

    • Administrative Groups – used to control permissions on the server

    • One Exchange Org per Active Directory Forest

Ancillary components

Ancillary Components

  • Active Directory Connector

    • Replicates Exchange 5.5 configuration info & user data into AD

    • Must be in place before joining Exchange 2003 into a 5.5 org

  • Site Replication Services

    • Part of Exchange 2003 which emulates the Exchange 5.5 directory

    • Allows 5.5 servers to interoperate correctly with 2003

  • Recipient Update Service

    • Ensures that recipient details in the AD match Exchange policy

    • Keeps email addresses etc up to date

  • Switch to “Native Mode” Exchange 2003 changes things

    • Enables some additional functionality & flexibility

    • One-way operation – i.e. no 5.5 Servers can be introduced later

Trends in exchange deployment

Trends in Exchange deployment

  • Site consolidation now common

    • Clustering, server scalability, pervasive reliable bandwidth and cached mode make it possible

    • SAN technology used to deliver I/O and share storage for clusters

  • Tape backup no longer #1

    • Restore times typically restrict database sizes

    • Primary backup to disk common (incl Snapshot), tape for archival

  • Remote Access very important

    • Users need to be mobile

Monitoring exchange with mom 2005 exchange management pack goals

Monitoring Exchange with MOM 2005Exchange Management Pack - Goals

  • Limited number of highly relevant alerts (suppress repetitive and related events lower noise)

  • Monitor all performance indicators

  • Knowledge: what to do when a problem occurs

  • Monitors all Exchange servers appropriately

    • Clusters, Front-end/Back-end, etc.

  • Supporting views and reports

    • System status / capacity planning

Mom 2005 exchange 2003 analysis reporting

MOM 2005 & Exchange 2003Analysis & Reporting

Questions Answered

  • Availability

    • Are all Exchange services up?

    • Are all databases mounted?

    • Is sufficient disk space available?

    • Can Outlook 2003 clients connect?

    • Can users connect via MAPI? POP? IMAP? HTTP?

  • Performance

    • Is Outlook 2003 client performance good?

    • Is mail flowing between servers?

    • Is Exchange performing well & reliably?

  • Configuration & Security

    • Is Exchange configured correctly & secure?
