This morning I presented at ITForum and promised to post the Lights Out Scripts I used to install Ex2007 into an existing Ex2003 environment.

If you want the CSV's to go with it - then mail me. BrettjoATmicrosoftDOTcom

This is what it does:

1) Install Hub,CAS,MBX Ex2007 roles onto a member server into an existing 2003 Org

2) Delete default DB and SG

3) Creates numerous SG’s and DB’s

4) Mounts one of them

5) Enables LCR

6) Migrates users from 2003 to 2007

7) Copies 2003 mailboxes to a PST’s

8) Copies 2003 mailboxes inside a 2007 mailbox

9) Finishes successfully..! ;)

#   Unplugged_Install.ps1
