If you have installed Exchange 2010, then you have no doubt come across a few hurdles. Here are my top tips.
Open the command prompt (best to “Run as Administrator”) and use the syntax ServerManagerCMD –ip Exchange-ROLE.xml to install the the roles and features required for each server.
(Right click Save Target As / Save Link As on above files.)
You may need to set the NetTcpPortSharing service to Automatic and start it.
Install the pre-requisites applications on all Exchange 2010 servers.
- .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 (includes ASP.NET AJAX 1.0)
- WinRM 2.0 CTP3
- PowerShell V2 CTP3
- Server 2008 MMC update
Now go ahead and run the GUI installer (best to “Run as Administrator”).
Once the first Exchange 2010 CAS is installed hop over to your Exchange 2007 CAS and MBX servers and add the group Exchange Trusted Subsystem to the local administrators group.
Leave the Windows Firewall On, during the installation this should be configured correctly.
I hope this information helps.
