Installing Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP1 Step-by-Step

1st Part – Installing Exchange 2010 Prerequisite’s

Howdy,

in this guide, i will discus How to install Exchange 2010 , and how to update it to SP1 .

the article will contain all the steps about how to do that.

My Environment is running in one windows server 2008 R2 SP1 , Hyper-V server , all the Exchange servers will be vitalized:

  1. One Domain Controller (domain name “lab.local”)
  2. One Client access \ Hub transport server “CAS\HT”.
  3. One Mailbox server “MBx”.
  4. One Edge Server.

First thing is Preparing your Server for the installation of Exchange server 2010 , run the following command lines for each of the Servers rolls.

A). Exchange 2010 Client Access Prerequisites

use the following command line to install the required windows features that are needed to install the CAS on windows server 2008 R2.

> Import-Module Servermanager

> Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework,RSAT-ADDS,Web-Server,Web-Basic-Auth,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Metabase,Web-Net-Ext,Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console,WAS-Process-Model,RSAT-Web-Server,Web-ISAPI-Ext,Web-Digest-Auth,Web-Dyn-Compression,NET-HTTP-Activation,RPC-Over-HTTP-Proxy -Restart

The “-restart” in the end of the command line will reboot the server after the installation is finished.

B). Exchange 2010 Hub Transport Server Prerequisites

Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework,RSAT-ADDS,Web-Server,Web-Basic-Auth,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Metabase,Web-Net-Ext,Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console,WAS-Process-Model,RSAT-Web-Server -Restart

C). Exchange 2010 Mailbox Server Prerequisites

Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework,RSAT-ADDS,Web-Server,Web-Basic-Auth,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Metabase,Web-Net-Ext,Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console,WAS-Process-Model,RSAT-Web-Server -Restart

D). Exchange 2010 Unified Messaging Server Prerequisites

Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework,RSAT-ADDS,Web-Server,Web-Basic-Auth,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Metabase,Web-Net-Ext,Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console,WAS-Process-Model,RSAT-Web-Server,Desktop-Experience -Restart

E). Exchange 2010 Edge Server Prerequisties

Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework,RSAT-ADDS,ADLDS -Restart

in this scenario we will install the CAS and the HT rolls in the same server so we can use the following command line to install the prerequisites:

Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework,RSAT-ADDS,Web-Server,Web-Basic-Auth,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Metabase,Web-Net-Ext,Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console,WAS-Process-Model,RSAT-Web-Server,Web-ISAPI-Ext,Web-Digest-Auth,Web-Dyn-Compression,NET-HTTP-Activation,RPC-Over-HTTP-Proxy -Restart

all other rolls will be a stand alone servers, so we can use the above command line for each roll.

couple of thing need to be installed on the server that will work as a CAS/ HT server

  1. Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services.
  2. 2007 office System Converter “filter Pack” download here

Now after preparing all the servers for installing Exchange server 2010 , it’s time to install Exchange server 2010.
