Course Title: Designing a Messaging Infrastructure Using

Microsoft Exchange Server 2007

Course Code: M5053
Version: A
Level: 300
Duration: 3 Days

Course Overview

The Designing a Messaging Infrastructure Using Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 M5053 instructor-led training course has been designed to provide candidates with the necessary skills and knowledge to design a messaging infrastructure. Candidates will learn to assess an existing infrastructure and determine technical and business requirements for new Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 deployments and migrations. Candidates will create a design that addresses security, architecture, scalability, coexistence and client access needs, as well as learning about strategies for gaining approval for designs from stakeholders.

Target Audience

Candidates who should consider attending the M5053 Microsoft training course are those with three or more years` experience working with previous Exchange Server versions and experience implementing Exchange Server 2007.

Course Objectives

On successfully completing the M5053 course candidates will be able to:
  • Gather business and technical requirements for a messaging infrastructure
  • Design an Active Directory directory service and message routing infrastructure
  • Design the hardware and system configuration for Exchange servers
  • Design security for the messaging environment
  • Design strategies for coexistence and interoperability
  • Design a strategy for upgrading to Exchange Server 2007
  • Design messaging policies
  • Obtain approval for a messaging infrastructure design

Course Prerequisites

Candidates attending the M5053 Microsoft training course should understand hardware concepts such as: what redundant array of independent disks (RAID) is, what a storage area network (SAN) is, processor options, memory requirements, how disk input/output (I/O) functions and the limitations of disk I/O and storage options for Exchange server as well as the differences in addressable memory spaces between 32- and 64-bit architectures.

Candidates should possess an extensive detailed knowledge of Active Directory concepts and design principles such as: site replication, integrated authentication, schema extension, Domain Name System (DNS), group and organisation unit structure and inheritance, etc.

Candidates are required to have previous working experience designing and implementing Active Directory in Windows Server 2003 is required and candidates should understand Exchange architecture such as: the purpose of server roles, functions of specific server roles, how message routing and queuing works in Exchange, standard messaging protocols (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol [SMTP], Internet Message Access Protocol version 4rev1 [IMAP4], Post Office Protocol version 3 [POP3]), how Exchange replicates data stores, client access methods, etc.

Candidates should also have a working knowledge of Exchange Server 2000 or 2003 and Exchange Server 2007 such as being able to install, maintain, and support a production Exchange environment. Candidates should also know how to use Exchange System Manager, Exchange Best Practice Analyser (ExBPA), Microsoft Office Visio (to create infrastructure diagrams) and be familiar with a Windows scripting or command-line scripting.

Testing and Certification

The M5053 Microsoft training course is the recommended preparation for the 70-237: Pro: Deploying Messaging Solutions with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 exam. To achieve the MCITP: Enterprise Messaging Administrator certification, candidates must successfully complete the 70-238 PRO: Designing Messaging Solutions with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. M5054: Designing a High Availability Messaging Solution Using Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 is recommended for further study.
