Course Outline Module 1: Installing and Upgrading to Exchange Server 2003 A requirement of a messaging administrator may be to install Exchange Server 2003 on newly acquired hardware. Because of this requirement, it is necessary for the administrator to know how to perform a clean installation of Exchange Server 2003. The administrator also needs to know how to install and use the tools that are needed to manage Exchange Server 2003. Because of the complexity involved in upgrading to Exchange Server 2003 from previous versions of Exchange, the administrator may not be required to perform any upgrade tasks; however, it is still beneficial for the administrator to understand the overall upgrade process.

Installing Exchange Server 2003 and the accompanying administrative tools comprise only the first step in getting a production server functioning correctly. The final two tasks to get a production server to function correctly are covered in Modules 2 and 3.

Module 2: Configuring and Managing Exchange Server 2003 After administrators install Exchange Server 2003, they must configure the server to run in their messaging environment. Configuration tasks include setting up Exchange policies to simplify administration, and configuring Exchange Server so that the administrator can proactively manage server performance. If administrators use both Exchange Server 2003 and Exchange 2000 Server in their messaging environment, they must also effectively manage this mixed environment.

I ranked the "Use of Technology" low because for Users who were remote the VM's that were setup were a little wonky. Could be very slow at times and then sometimes they needed to be refreshed to work properly with the lab. In some instances we couldn't follow along as replication would not occur fast enough and we would have our lab cut short (for us remote Users).
