So i'm recovering this Exchange Server in the Test Lab, and one thing that really bugs me is the fact that when using the /recoverserver switch (more info here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb332343(EXCHG.80).aspx), Exchange is installed to the default location (%program files%\microsoft\exchange server).
I find this rather annoying as the install path is recorded on the Exchange Server object in the Configuration Container partition of AD.
When recovering a server however you can specify an alternate install directory. After /recoverserver use /t or /targetdir and specify the install directory.
Example: setup /m:recoverserver /t:"D:\Install\Exchange"
