Exchange 2010 SP1 and RU1

If you are going for upgrading your server to Exchange 2010 SP2 and RU1 you may want to read some of the important notes included into release notes here.

From my experience the execution policy is something you MUST pay attention to it, also schedule more then twice time you would do for these upgrades as they will take long time (-:

One of the things to watch out is Execution policy, and its side effects , even though the release notes talk about it, some of the admins who have missed to pay attention to this ended up loosing entire exchange server and did have to go for recovery.

To verify the execution policies before you begin the installation, run the following Windows PowerShell cmdlet:

Get-ExecutionPolicy –list
The output should resemble the following:

Look at exchange server recovery helps you recovers corrupted/unreadable exchange folders, messages and rest data are damaged by power shortages or surges, physical damage and incorrect user's actions.
