The importance of Powershell Execution Policy in Exchange upgrade #Exchange2010 #Exchange #microsoft


I am a good reader for release notes, documents, setup guide and technet reader, and Ia decent amount of my day spent reading those tiny notes that are written in italic and those none-pleasant documents that you guys don’t read.

But I found that it is useful, a fellow MVP “Richard Matheisen” posted internally about the case of a failed Exchange server deployment because of Powershell Execution policy that set by GPO to true.

I would like to highlight that it is explicitly mentioned in the release notes that::

When you upgrade from a previous version of Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2010 SP2 and you’ve previously defined the execution policy of Windows PowerShell scripts using group policies, Setup will fail. After Setup fails, Exchange 2010 will no longer work on the affected server and you won’t be able to restart Setup.

Since there is no way to report that in the setup wizard or EXPBA you will need to be aware of that. since it will render your setup useless and there is no way to recover from it.

 

please read the Exchange release notes here for further information: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh529928.aspx
