Installing Office 2010 on our Exchange 2010 server box

We are using our Exchange 2010 server box as our Termininal Server. This server is running Windows server 2008 standard. Can we install Office 2010 on this same box without having any complications? Are there any specific settings/ steps that will need to be taken before proceeding with this?

There shouldn't be any complications, no.  I'm not aware of any potential conflicts there.  Everything should work just fine!

I am not aware of any issues with respect to exchange 2010 or exchange 2007.

But for exchange 2003/2000, its not a good idea.

Microsoft does not support installing Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 (including Exchange System Manager), Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server (including Exchange System Manager), or Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 on the same computer. The Product Support group does not support the coexistence of Outlook and Exchange on the same computer in a production environment.

Unless third-party programs are designed and tested to run in this configuration, those programs may not work correctly and may adversely affect an Exchange computer. The types of Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) programs that may be affected are custom MAPI store providers, custom gateway and transport providers, and extended MAPI clients. These issues occur because versions of these two products produce a conflict of the MAPI subsystem that may not be cleanly reconciled without breaking either Exchange or Outlook.

I would say - do it on your own risk :)

Good luck

Please do not install Outlook on a Exchange Box.
Can you use a separate box for terminal server role and have Outlook deployed there ?

This is an older post, but it tells you why you shouldnt do it.
