Install Exchange 2010 on Windows Server 2008 R2

Be sure to visit and bookmark my new Exchange-specific blog: including my Exchange pre-requisite install script  (Install-ExchangePrerequisites)
  1. Install the Microsoft Filter Pack.
  2. Open PowerShell and run: Import-Module ServerManager
  3. With PowerShell still open run: 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

    That will install the pre-requisites for
    Client Access, Hub Transport, and the Mailbox roles. If you are performing a different installation option, see this page.
  4. After restarting, from within an elevated PowerShell window run: Set-Service NetTcpPortSharing -StartupType Automatic
  5. If you haven't already, run Windows Update and install all the latest critical updates
  6. Run the Exchange Install
  7. Choose your language option (Step 3 of the installer)
  8. The rest of the install should be fairly straightforward :)
