ServerManagerCmd -i RSAT-ADDS

I am installing a new Exchange Server 2007 SP1 on a Windows 2008 server.

We have two other servers, all Windows 1008: domain controller and a file server.

Right now only the DC is setup; active directory has been installed as well as DNS.

Reading the pre-requisites for Exchange setup, I am supposed to run:

ServerManagerCmd -i RSAT-ADDS

And am curious if this is supposed to be performed on the server hosting Exchange or on the DC?

    Those tools need installing on the Exchange Server, so run the command on that machine.

    Curious when I join the Exchange server to the domain? I just ran the command successfully and am about to install Exchange; should I join to the domain first or after install?

    You need to join the domain prior to installing Exchange.
