MS Exchange = PURE EVIL

If there is a group dedicated to seething hatred of Microsoft Exchange, I would like to join.

I have spent the majority of the last two weeks dealing with a multitude of issues & problems with Exchange servers at work, and I feel like I’ve had enough for a lifetime.

First I tried to apply a simple update to one server, and it borked itself. Spent over 50 hours restoring the thing from backup, and then days dealing with associated fallout from the failure.

Then another server decided to go and get itself a virus.  That kept me busy for a day or two just trying to figure out how to fix it (as conveniently the backups had failed for that server).

It all just made for a really long two weeks. I really hope that was the end of it, I don’t know if my sanity can take much more!
