Those commands install the Exchange 2007 pre-requisites when installing Exchange 2007 on a Windows Server 2008 machine. They need to be run on the actual server where Exchange 2007 will be installed.

Hi,
You can run it from any of these servers.
As per MS:::: "ServerManagerCmd.exe can be executed from within any directory on the server's local drives. You must be a member of the Administrators group on the server on which you intend to install or to remove software. "
Please refer to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc748918.aspx
Let me know if you need further info
Thanks

Nitin,

I have to say that's incorrect. The commands install the Exchange 2007 pre-requisites, and these MUST be on the server where Exchange 2007 is to be installed, otherwise install will fail.

Dear,

I run all those command on Active Directory and added the feature "PowerShell" and .net on exchange server. The roles (CAS, HT, and Mailbox) running on the same Exchange server.
The Ex2k7 SP1 installation is successful.

I asked this question because back of mind i still have a confusion which i want to clarify!

You can have a look on the comment from jjdurrent - Guru

Nitin, what do you mean by exe only and not on the switches.

Eagerly waiting for reply!

Zakir,

Which part are you confused about? jjdurrant simply stated that you need a server running a 64-bit CPU and 64-bit Windows Server 2003/2008 in order for you to install Exchange 2007. You must have sorted this, since you have Exchange installed and working.

As for the ServerManager issue, you ONLY need to run those commands on the Exchange Server, not the DC. Again, that must have been successful since Exchange is running.

A Domain Controller can be either 32-bit or 64-bit, there is no preference for a DC although other software applications it may need to run may influence whether you can go 64-bit or not.

I see your confusion. I can confirm that the ServerManager commands which you posted only need to be run on the Exchange 2007 Server, and not on the DC. The packages they install are required for Exchange 2007 to run, but are not required on the DC if Exchange is not installed there.

Well, see ServerManager commands can be run on any of these Servers (DC or Exchange) like I had mentioned earlier. No doubt on that part.
But these specific commands need to be run on Exchange as prerequisites. Infact if you have multiple Exchange 2007 roles on other Windows 2008 server, then few will be required to be run again on those servers
Hope that clarifies my comment
Thanks
