Adding a component to SBS that wasnt installed initially, namely Exchange

I have had a small Buz server 2003 R2 runnin for a while now, and now that woud like exchange on the box. Initially I didnt select Exchang on the options when I set it up to save on unrequired services.

Whats the best way to add it in now. I found the install on SBS 2003 CD2 (original CD). Do I just install it by running the setup for echange frome CD2 or is there a better way to do it?

you want to rerun the SBS setup wiz on disk 1, then install the exchange using that. if you do it the disk 2 way, you will run in to all sorts of issues. gl :)

ok so while windows is still running I justrun the setup from Disk1 and select exchang?

I tried running a setup file but it didnt load so I took the CD out and tried CD2. Maybe just not patiet enough. Ill try again and let you know

with thanks

Go to add/remove programs in control panel.Choose "Windows Small Business Server 2003" and click on "change/remove"
Follow the prompts from there.
It will ask for the correct CD.
Hope that helps,
