Re: Exchange 2003 to 2007 Migration

i guess i have read too many times where others have problems due to the file versions of the CDO and MAPI32 not matching between Exchange and the BB Ent Server.

 

i want to make sure i match the correct files.

both servers have the latest 1.2.1 MDAC installed 

 

Here's what i find:

BB Server, both in system32 dir

MAPI.dll ver 6.5.7638.1

CDO.dll ver  6.5.7651.61

 

Exch 2007

C:\windows\system32... mapi32.dll ver 1.0.2536.0

C:\windows\syswow64... mapi32.dll ver 6.5.7974.0

 

c:\windows\syswow64.... cdo.dll ver 6.5.7974.0

c:\program files\microsoft\exchange server\bin... excdo.dll ver 8.1.263.0 

 

the file versions are all over the place!

Which ones need to match?

 

thanks1

Re: Exchange 2003 to 2007 Migration

The versions don't need to match.  Yes its recommended that they do ... but as long as the version on the BES is at or above the version on Exchange you're fine.

 

Your BES still has the Exchange 2003 SP2 versions ... you need to get that server upgraded to the newest version.  When you do your migration you'll want to remove the 2003 SP2 ESM (actually you could leave it according to RIM's KB), and install the CDO tools.

 

I don't have a server in front of me to check my versions versus what you have but you look fine.

Re: Exchange 2003 to 2007 Migration

i shut down the BB services, moved BESAdmin mailbox, resolved MAPI to new 2007 server, rebooted.

 

when it came back up, i was unable to send or receive mail.

Re: Exchange 2003 to 2007 Migration

sorry, one more question     

 

should the 1.2.1 cdo.dll file be located at \program files\microsoft\exchange server\bin on the exchange 2007 server?

if so, it is not, the MDAC program did not put it there, i only see the excdo.dll file.

Re: Exchange 2003 to 2007 Migration

MDAC has nothing to do with the cdo component installer.

 

on 2007 server:

 

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\CDO\cdoex.dll

and

C:\WINDOWS\system32\cdosys.dll

 

on BES:

 

C:\WINDOWS\system32\CDO.DLL

and

C:\WINDOWS\system32\cdosys.dll

 

^^^ copied from my bes / exchange server.
