In-place upgrade from exchange 2013 to exchange 2016

Postby guest » Wed Dec 02, 2015 5:17 pm

Q: How to in-place upgrade from exchange 2013 to exchange 2016?

A: Firstly, as we all know, Exchange 2016 architecture is significantly different from Exchange 2013, for example, the Mailbox server in Exchange 2016 includes all of the server components from the Exchange 2013 Mailbox and Client Access server roles. For more information about what’s the differences between Exchange 2013 and Exchange 2016, you may refer to the following link:

What’s new in Exchange 2016

Secondly, Exchange 2016 doesn't support in-place upgrades from previous versions of Exchange. This mode is used only to install cumulative updates or service packs. For more detailed information, you may refer to the “Modes of Exchange setup” part of the following document:

Planning and deployment

Thirdly, we can only migrate from previous versions of Exchange to a new version Exchange, for example, Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2013 migration. We can only upgrade to a new releases cumulative updates or service packs, for example, Exchange 2013 CU5 to Exchange 2013 CU10 updating. So we suggest you migrate from Exchange 2013 to Exchange 2016. To get one Step-by-Step migration guide, I would also suggest you refer to following technical Video which shows the complete process about migrating from Exchange 2013 to Exchange 2016:


On Exchange server 2010 and later versions of Exchange server, the mailboxes migration are processed as online moves, which would not have any downtime. And the time migration takes depend on the size of mailboxes, Public Folders, and what disk speed the 2013 mailboxes are on, what disk speed the 2016 databases will be on.
