Exchange Server 2007 SP1 and Longhorn Server

by Bharat Suneja

Update to the previous post titled “Exchange Server 2007 SP1: A bag of goodies!“, which referenced Exchange product group GM Terry Myerson’s blog post on the Exchange team blog.

Terry’s post stated:
“On Longhorn Server, we will support Exchange 2007 on native IPv6 networks.”

In a follow-up email conversation today, Terry confirmed Exchange Server 2007 SP1 will run on servers running Longhorn server OS, and SP1 will also support Domain Controllers running Longhorn.

Longhorn is the codename for the next version of Windows Server operating system – a code-name shared by the client OS now known as Windows Vista.

For those planning Exchange Server 2007 deployments in the SP1 timeframe, this should be welcome news. At the time of writing, Longhorn server is slated to be available “in 2007” according to Microsoft’s web site. The site also adds: “Microsoft’s philosophy is to deliver our products only after we have received extensive feedback from beta customers and partners and after we have thoroughly tested the software”.
