Exchange 2010 Mailbox Server Role Requirements Calculator Updated to Version 3.2

MSExchangeTeam released a new version of the Exchange 2010 Mailbox Server Role Requirements calculator.

It’s been a while since we discussed the Exchange 2010 Mailbox Server Role Requirements Calculator. Well I am pleased to say that today we are launching version 3.2 of the calculator.

This version includes the following improvements and new features:

  • Added processor core guidance for Hub Transport and Client Access server roles.
  • Added the ability to define a custom number of databases that you would like to implement in the solution.
  • Added support for 2-node site resilient Database Availability Groups.
  • Added 1 and 6 processor cores as selectable options.
  • Improved breakdown of the activation scenarios in a site resilient solution.
  • Improved breakout of the role requirements section.
  • The Storage Design tab now indicates that when you select a custom RAID configuration that the calculator ignores RAID-5 and RAID-6 for 5.xK and 7.2K spindles due to performance concerns.
  • Updated processor utilization results to show the processor utilization even if it is above the recommended threshold.
  • Made conditional formatting improvements throughout the calculator to warn you when you have a configuration that will not work.
  • Improved various cell comments.
