Exchange 2010 SP2 has been released today! Here are the new features/improvements:
- Hybrid Configuration Wizard
- Address Book Policies
- Cross-Site Silent Redirection for Outlook Web App
- Mini Version of Outlook Web App
- Mailbox Replication Service
- Mailbox Auto-Mapping
- Multi-Valued Custom Attributes
- Litigation Hold
I’m not going to describe what each one of these are/do as the topic What’s New in Exchange 2010 SP2 does the job very well. What I will do is post here some more information once I test them.
Just a quick note: when you try to install it, you might get the following error:
CAS Prerequisites SETUP error: The "IIS WMI Compatibility" component is required. Install the component via the Web Server Manager.
This is because SP2 introduces a new requirement for CAS servers to have the IIS6 WMI Compatibility role. So, probably the best way is to use one of the following methods:
setup.com /m:upgrade /InstallWindowsComponents
