If you log into your exchange server you should have the ESM on there I believe it is installed by default when you set up exchange.

On my exchange server its under on the start menu under programs, microsoft exchange, system manager.

Also if have the exchange installation CD you can install it on your desktop or laptop to manage exchange form your computer.

Also on your exchange server you can go to C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin and you should have a Exchange System Manager.msc in there. Double click that and ESM should launch.
