Hey Everyone,

I was just wondering if it would be possible to install EMC 2010 on my Windows 7 x64 Ultimate machine at home to administer my Office 365.  The issue I'm facing is that it's my home computer and not on a domain.  Is there any way around not having an Active Directory server and installing EMC 2010?

Thanks,
Adam

No you cannot install the Exchange Management Tools on a standalone computer. The setup needs an Active Directory domain for setup.

OK Thanks, I guess I'll have to use PowerShell then.
