I'm preparing for interviews. I did MCSA course long back and the Exchange server I used was Exchange server 2003.
Now I'm searching for Software requirements for installing
1. Exchange server 2007 on Windows server 2003 and
2. Exchange server 2010 on Windows server 2008.

I searched in the internet but I didn't find it easy. It would be easy for experienced in Exchange server to list them exactly what all required on a fresh machine.

Anybody help me here listing softwares, packages, dependencies, services etc... to install them on respective servers?.

Thank you!

Its not easy beacause certaainnly for 2010 the requirments depend on the roles being installed. Its much simpler to tick the box that says "install the pre-requisites" and let the install process install the required features and download the necessary fixes.

There is a full list here:-

For the 2007 version use the "other versions" link.

The biggest two "gotchas" that catch folks out with 2010 are :-

1. You must have Windows Enterprise to have a Database Availability Group as it uses MSCS clustering.

2. Database Availability Groups use normal Microsoft  Clustering (MSCS). The cheapest way to implement a Client Access Array uses Network Load Balancing(NLB). You can have NLB and MSCS on the same server so you need spearate CAS and Mailbox servers. These can be virtual.
