An Overview of Exchange 2007 SP1


An Overview of Exchange 2007 SP1




This video presents a quick overview and briefing of some of the key features in Exchange Server 2007 SP1.  This ranges from Active Directory (AD) integration with Exchange Server 2007 and a new GUI in the form of the Exchange Management Console used to manage Exchange 2007.
Thanks to the new command line interface PowerShell, Exchange has been designed with an Exchange Management Shell, a command line interface that allows administrators to perform powerful tasks with simple CmdLets.  In addition, there are now five server roles which can be deployed separately, or combined in a single server; the Edge Transport Server Role cannot be combined with any other roles, however.  New transport features also bring capabilities such as anti-spam, journaling for compliance with government regulations, as well as the use of transport rules to control mails in transit.
Finally, a new unified messaging capability has also been added to Exchange, and four different types of high-availability solutions that can be deployed.  Exchange 2007 RTM came with three while Exchange 2007 SP1 added a fourth solution.  Subsequent lessons will explain the above-mentioned features (and many others) in order to facilitate a greater understanding of Exchange 2007.
