Applying service packs and rollups in a clustered environment

 

Applies to: Forefront Protection for Exchange

Topic Last Modified: 2012-06-08

This topic describes how to apply Exchange and Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server (FPE) service packs and rollups in a clustered environment.

To install an Exchange service pack or rollup in a clustered environment
  1. Disable FPE on all nodes using the steps described in Disabling or enabling the product by using the FSC utility.

  2. It is recommended that you perform your installation on all active nodes, and then on all passive nodes. On each node, follow the instructions provided with the specific Exchange service pack or rollup that you are installing.

  3. After the installation is complete and the Exchange services have been restarted, verify that mail is flowing.

  4. Starting with the active node, enable FPE on all nodes using the steps described in Disabling or enabling the product by using the FSC utility.

WarningWarning:
Do not fail over the active node when performing these steps.
NoteNote:
Some Exchange service packs and rollups require you to download and install an FPE update in order to ensure that FPE operates correctly. For information and downloads, visit the Microsoft Web site at Microsoft Help and Support.
To install an FPE service pack or rollup in a clustered environment
  1. On the passive node, run the installer by double-clicking the service pack or rollup executable file.

  2. On the active node, fail over the node to make it passive, and then run the installer by double-clicking the service pack or rollup executable file.

  3. After the installation is complete and the Exchange and FPE services have been restarted (this occurs automatically during the installation), verify that FPE is working properly.
