Hello everyone,

 

I was wondering if anyone can guide me through this upgrade as my company is currently considering and upgrade from EV 7.5  Exchange 2003 to EV 8.0sp1 Exchange 2010. Is this true from my understanding, we can't just jump to EV 9.0 directly and have upgrade in a orderly fashion? What are some of the things i should be following step by step for this upgrade process? Thanks in Advance!

If you can't hire someone to help I would recommend that you read the Upgrade_Instructions.pdf/chm included with each version install media.

You are correct, you need to first go to EV 8 and then to EV 9.

Also, give this a read:

and this

OH, and if you can, practice in a VM lab or something so you get the feel for it.  Don't forget to upgrade your clients.

When you are ready to go to EV 10 check out the following:

http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO42445

Enterprise Vault 10.0: Installation—Upgrading to Enterprise Vault 10.0 (11 of 11)

This module describes the options for moving to Enterprise Vault 10.0. It also describes and demonstrates how to migrate Enterprise Vault 9.x servers to a 64-bit operating system platform and to upgrade servers to Enterprise Vault 10.0.
