Exchange Server 2010 SP2 Released

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:

1. /m:upgrade /InstallWindowsComponents

Import-Module ServerManager
enable-windowsfeature web-wmi

Import-Module ServerManager
Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework, RSAT-ADDS, Web-Server, Web-Basic-Auth, Web-Windows-Auth, Web-Metabase, Web-Net-Ext, Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console, WAS-Process-Model, RSAT-Web-Server, Web-ISAPI-Ext, Web-Digest-Auth, Web-Dyn-Compression, NET-HTTP-Activation, RPC-Over-HTTP-Proxy, Web-WMI –Restart
