Wrapping up SLDs and Exchange Server 2007
In Single Level Domains and Exchange 2007 service pack 1, I commented on the fact that Microsoft was no longer going to support single label domains starting with Exchange Server 2007 service pack 1. Then, in More on Single Label Domains and Exchange 2007 I shared that Microsoft was going to change their position on that a bit.
Finally, last week, Microsoft has released the update that allows Exchange Server 2007 service pack 1 to be installed on single label domains. That guidance is available in the article Update that will allow you to install Exchange 2007 SP1 into a Single-label named domains is now available.
As I noted before:
1) Microsoft will support it - but will not change things that don't work with it
2) SLDs will NOT be supported by the next version of Exchange (code-named E14)
3) A domain rename tool will not be released for Exchange 2007
4) Outlook Anywhere/Autodiscover will not work properly in a SLD
Further, you should be aware that anytime after Exchange Server 2007 PrepareAD has occurred, is too late to run the Domain Rename Tool. More on that topic tomorrow.
Until next time...
