Last year we released the Exchange Server 2010 Deployment Assistant (ExDeploy), a free web-based tool which can help you deploy Exchange Server 2010. With ExDeploy, you can create Exchange Server 2010 on-premises deployment instructions that are customized to your environment. The Deployment Assistant asks you a small set of questions, and based on your answers, it provides a checklist with instructions that are designed to get you up and running on Exchange 2010. You can also print the checklist or create a PDF file.
Thank you for the continued feedback. We use it to determine content updates that are released on a monthly basis. You can see the details of the June update in the Release Notes within the Assistant.
A couple other new items of interest are:
The Deployment Assistant is also available in Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, and Spanish. This includes localized versions of the customized checklists that are available for download.
We're always interested in improving ExDeploy and would love your feedback about the existing version as well as additional scenarios that would be helpful to you in deploying Exchange 2010. If you haven't done so already, check out the Deployment Assistant.
You can send an e-mail directly to firstname.lastname@example.org or via the 'Feedback' link located in the header of every page of the Deployment Assistant.
Planning is happening right now to determine what additional scenarios will be most beneficial to customers, and we’d love your input!
