I don't know if everyone knows about this feature, but for me i think this is one of the coolest integration features in OCS 2007 R2 and Exchange 2010.
The concept is to integrate outlook web App with office communications Server 2007 R2 for presence and instant messaging, which means that users using Outlook web App will have The ability to provision their presence and use a built-in instant messaging system to chat with other OCS users, in addition to the basic Outlook Web App features. Isn't cool!
Let's get started and see how this can be accomplished.
If you are running Exchange 2010 Edge on Forefront TMG do NOT install Exchange 2010 SP1 on it yet. Doing so will lead to crash your TMG Managed Control service with the error
The Forefront TMG Managed Control service failed to initialize. Error information: Command failed with error: The term 'Get-AntiSpamUpdates' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again
I am faced with a very funny issue at a client where I'm migrating from Lotus Domino to Exchange.
As you might know Microsoft didn't release migration tools from Lotus to Exchange 2010 directly so the path was Domino -> Exchange 2007 and then Exchange 2007 -> Exchange 2010.
Since Exchange 2007 SP3 has been released a couple of days ago I've installed it on, what I was planning to be, a temporary server.
I was surprised today that I was not able to install Exchange 2010 and setup.com /PrepareSchema failed with the following error.
We have seen in part 1 of this tutorial the classical approach to single mailbox recovery from backups using Exchange 2010 and how this method can only restore the mailbox content to a new structure and this could be annoying for some.
Analyzing the findings of our first approach we can deduce that the problem lies behind the fact that the new mailbox of user2 has a different GUID than the one in the backup. So, logically, changing the GUID of the new mailbox and setting it to the same as the one in backup should solve the issue right ?
Let's see how we can accomplish this to make the magic happens.

I have written a 2 part tutorial at simple-talk.com about Microsoft Exchange 2010 Backup and Restore in which I have covered all steps needed to successfully backup your database as well as different recovery scenarios. This article can be looked at as an extension of the recovery process, part 2, and will cover the case when a single mailbox needs to be recovered from the backup.
I would like to stress first that it is not usually needed to recover a single mailbox from a backup when running Microsoft Exchange 2010 because deleted mailbox can be found in the "Disconnected Mailboxes" under "Recipient Configuration" and can simply be reconnected. However if you are just curious to learn or you are in need to recover a single mailbox for whatever reason keep on reading.
I will assume in this article that you are already familiar with the backup and restore process and that a successful full backup of the database already exists.
