Exchange 2007 to be supported in Windows Server 2008 R2 after all…
The Exchange Team is listening, a statement made on their blog confirms that support for Exchange 2007 installed on Windows Server 2008 R2 wil be delivered via an update (release date to be confirmed).
Taken from the Exchange Blog:
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.
So, keep the feedback coming. We are listening.
