Using vSphere 5 auto-deploy in your home lab

I was just playing around with auto-deploy and I figured I would quickly scribble down the steps required to configure it. The documentation is okay but it often refers me back and forth in the document which makes it difficult to read at times. Here is what I did to get it working. I was in doubt if I would add screenshots, but that would make this article fairly lengthy and I am sure that most of you wouldn’t need it any way. I have my complete lab virtualized at home, so this whole setup is running in VMware Workstation. Download... [Lire la suite]

Mailbox Moves From Legacy Exchange To 2010 SP1 Is Very Slow…

 was running mailbox moves from Exchange 2003 SP2 to Exchange 2010 SP1 servers and noticed that the process was taking much longer than previous migrations. I have migrated from legacy Exchange to 2010 RTM and the time taken was much lesser. Looking more into it, I found that only 2 mailboxes are moved simultaneously to a 2010 SP1 database, though there were hundreds of mailbox move requests queued. This happens because of a change that has been made in 2010 SP1 to the Mailbox Replication Service (MRS) configuration file in the... [Lire la suite]
