Unity AD Schema Update info

Hello everyone,

Who is ready for the weekend!?!?!

Can anyone confirm for me that the AD Schema update included with 4.0(5) will NOT break an existing Unity 4.0(2) with Exhcnage 5.5 onbox?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Unity AD Schema Update info

The schema updates are always backwards compatible - nothing is every removed/changed so older systems will never be broken.

Re: Unity AD Schema Update info

The schema update should not break any existing functionality. Unity allows for a mixed messaging environment when upgrading Exchange where you would have users homed to both Exchange 2000/2003 servers as well as Exchange 5.5 servers. The schema update is required in this scenario and Unity still interacts with Exchange 5.5 properly. See the following link for confirmation.

Hope this helps.

Thanks guys. So if I read this right if I am running Exchange 5.5 on box with Unity 4.0(2) and am bringing another Unity server online I could install the new Unity with even as high as 4.1(x) and not break anything? Cool...Thanks ffor the info. I ust have read a typo in my documentation.

Thanks, again
