Earlier last year, we announced that Exchange 2010 Service Pack 3 would be coming in the first half of 2013. Later, we updated the timeframe to Q1 2013. Today, we're pleased to announce the availability of Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 3, which is ready to download.

Service Pack 3 is a fully slipstreamed version of Exchange 2010. The following new features and capabilities are included within SP3:

  • Coexistence with Exchange 2013:Customers who want to introduce Exchange Server 2013 into their existing Exchange 2010 infrastructure will need the coexistence changes shipping in SP3.

    NOTE: Exchange 2010 SP3 allows Exchange 2010 servers to coexist with Exchange 2013 CU1, which is also scheduled to be released in Q1 2013. Customers can test and validate this update in a representative lab environment prior to rolling out in their production environments as an important coexistence preparatory step before introducing Exchange Server 2013 CU1.

  • Support for Windows Server 2012: With SP3, you can install and deploy Exchange Server 2010 on computers that are running Windows Server 2012.
  • Support for Internet Explorer 10: With SP3, you can use IE10 to connect to Exchange 2010.
  • Customer Requested Fixes: All fixes contained within update rollups released before SP3 will also be contained within SP3. Details of our regular Exchange 2010 release rhythm can be found in Exchange 2010 Servicing.

In addition to the customer reported issues resolved in previous rollups, this service pack also resolves the issues that are described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) articles:

Exchange 2010 SP3 FAQ

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions.

  • Q. Does Exchange 2010 SP3 include the fixes in Exchange 2010 SP2 RU6?
    A. Yes. Service Packs are cumulative - they include all fixes included in previous RUs and service packs. Although Exchange 2010 SP2 RU6 was released on the same day as Exchange 2010 SP3, fixes in RU6 are included in SP3.

  • Q. Does Exchange 2010 SP3 include the security fix mentioned in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS13-012?
    Yes, fix for the vulneraiblity in MS13-012 is included in Exchange 2010 SP2 RU6, and (as stated above) fixes from SP2 RU6 are inclued in SP3. We recommend reviewing the related security bulletin before applying an update that contains security fixes.

  • Q. Why release RU6 for SP2 at all if all fixes are included in SP3?
    Exchange 2010 SP2 is a supported service pack (see Exchange Server Support Lifecycle). Customers typically deploy update rollups quickly but take longer to deploy service packs.

  • Q. Is Exchange 2010 SP3 compatible with WMF 3.0/PowerShell 3.0?
    A. Exchange team has validated and supports Exchange 2010 SP3 running on Windows Server 2012, which comes with PS 3.0 by default. Please note that even when running on Windows Server 2012, Exchange 2010 SP3 will still use only PowerShell 2.0 functionality. Exchange team has not validated Exchange 2010 SP3 running on earlier server OSes (2008, 2008 R2) with WMF3 / PS3 installed, and we therefore do not recommend that configuration.

  • Q. Does Exchange 2010 SP3 require an Active Directory schema update?
    A. Yes, as mentioned in Exchange 2010 SP3 Release Notes, an Active Directory schema is required.

  • Q. Can I install Exchange 2013 RTM in my Exchange 2010 organization after upgrading to Exchange 2010 SP3?
    A. As mentioned in the post, coexistence of Exchange 2013 in an Exchange 2010 SP3 org requires Exchange 2013 CU1, also scheduled for release in this quarter (Q1 2013).

  • Q. It's great that Exchange 2010 SP3 is supported on Windows Server 2012! Can I upgrade the OS my Exchange Server's running on from Windows Server 2008/2008 R2 to Windows Server 2012 after installing SP3?
    A. No. Upgrading the operating system after Exchange Server installation is not supported. You would have to uninstall Exchange, upgrade the OS, then reinstall Exchange. Or install Exchange 2010 SP3 on a fresh Windows 2012 install.

  • Q. Is MRM 1.0 supported on Exchange 2010 SP3?
    A. Yes, MRM 1.0 (Managed Folders) is a supported feature in Exchange 2010. We replaced MRM 1.0 management support in EMC with MRM 2.0 (Retention tags) in Exchange 2010 SP1. You can still use the Shell to manage MRM 1.0.

  • Q. Will I be able to restore and mount database backups created before a server is upgraded to SP3?
    A. Yes. When you restore and mount the database, it will be updated.

  • Q. Does Exchange 2010 SP3 add support for Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) in Cryptographic Mode 2?
    A. Yes, Information Rights Management (IRM) features in Exchange 2010 SP3 support AD RMS running in Cryptographic Mode 2.

  • Q. Is Exchange 2010 SP3 supported with <My great third-party Exchange add-on/tool>?
    A. Please contact the partner / third-party software vendor for this info. We recommend testing in a representative non-production environment before you deploy in production.

@Lorenzo Soncini: There's no change to client support for Exchange 2010 w/SP3. See

Normally in a DAG update I would suspend the passive copy of the DB on the server being updated. If I only have 2 members in my DAG and I move all databases to member #1 and I suspend DB copies on member #2 then update to SP3, should I not re-enable those copies after the update of member #2? I will need to re-enable those copies and move all DBs over to the updated server which will cause the updated database copies to replicate to the non-SP3 server. Will this be an issue? I am trying to lay out my plan for the update but that is where I am stuck if the SP3 database cannot be on a non-SP3 server.

If we are in a hybrid situation with ex2010 on prem and just using o365 for archive mailboxes, will we be able to move to ex2013 on prem upon cu1 release?  A post in the exchange online comments appears to say that is not the case.  Are we going to have yet another release to wait for???

Quote - "Service Pack 3 is a fully slipstreamed version of Exchange 2010"

How do I install Exchange 2010 SP3 on a new build of Server 2012? The download is only 500 ish MB so I don't think it is a full install. Do I extract the files in the service pack to a local directory and run the installer from there presumably with the Exchange 2010 SP1 DVD in the CD drive? Or do I need to slipstream the service pack in to Exchange 2010 SP1 DVD? Or is the SP3 installer enough by itself to do an install of Exchange 2010?

Thanks

@Michael

Exchange 2010 SP3 extracts to approx. 1.5Gb and is enough by itself. In very simple terms, just extract to a local folder and run setup. No DVDs are required.

Hello Exchange Team,

I have a question about SCOM 2012 monitoring.

Do you think that applying the SP3 on Exchange Box can break up the Monitoring part of SCOM, cause I don't see any new MPs version released since the Exchange SP3 was announced.

In advance thank you.

If you are using virtual environment there should be lot of space on LUN or respective storage..

The Active Directory Schema Changes Reference document which was updated today claims that the rangeUpper should be 14733 which I believe is a typo. The actual value is 14734.

@Mottie - thanks, should be fixed now :)

"Customers can test and validate this update in a representative lab environment prior to rolling out in their production environments as an important coexistence preparatory step before introducing Exchange Server 2013 CU1."

What should we expect NOT to work when testing this in a lab?  It seems that it will either work or it wont - what can we learn from testing without CU1?  That it does not work?
