Windows 2000, XP and XP SP2 end of support

Posted in Active Directory, Client OS on March 26, 2010 by Mahmoud Magdy

As you may be aware, there are a number of Microsoft Windows versions which will go out of support during the coming year. We want to help customers avoid the risk of running unsupported products in their environment.
Windows 2000 Professional and Windows 2000 Server are approaching 10 years since their launch and both products will go out of support on July 13, 2010.
Windows XP was launched back in 2001. While support for the product will continue, Service Pack 2 will go out of support on July 13, 2010. From that date onwards, Microsoft will no longer support or provide free security updates for Windows XP SP2. Please install the free Service Pack 3 for Windows XP to have the most secure and supported Windows XP platform.
Finally, Windows Vista with no Service Packs installed will end support on April 13 2010. Please install the free Service Pack 2 for Windows Vista to have the most secure and supported Windows Vista platform.

Hi,
Today we met a weired issue, we were in the middle of a migration from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010, mailboxes were moved to the Exchange 2010 but the source mailbox wasn’t deleted and we got the move request done with the following warning Error details: MapiExceptionNotFound: Unable to delete mailbox. (hr=0x8004010f, ec=-2147221233)

to solve this issue please apply service pack 2 to the Exchange 2003 servers, apply rollup update 1 to the Exchange 2010 and the following hotfix to the Exchange 2003 servers: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/940012

the issues should be resolved.
