Installing Exchange 2010 service pack 2

Quite a few people have reported errors after installing SP2 – have a read of the comments on this blog http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2011/12/05/released-exchange-server-2010-sp2.aspx before deciding whether to upgrade.

Pre-requisites

  • Exchange SP2 makes numerous schema updates so the account you use to update must have schema admin rights. Once the schema has been updated wait for active directory replication to update the entire forest.
  • Please follow the normal upgrade process of CAS, Hub Transport then Mailbox servers. You can update Edge servers either first or last. Also UM servers should be updated before mailbox servers.
  • I recommend running windows update (with extra MS updates) on the exchange 2010 server

 

Install SP2

  • Download and run the sp2 install. It will check if any pre-requisites are missing.
