I need help with advice, forgotten info and how to's on Setting up an Exchange Server 2013.

TOPICS:

- Exchange Setup and Integration.
- Split DNS
- RPC over HTTPS (also known as Outlook Anywhere)
     -- client protocol management for Exchange ActiveSync, POP3, and IMAP4 is also handled on the Client Access server.
- Real world FQDN as the servers and exchange / outlook FQDN.

Network Overview::

I have an existing domain with 2 domain controllers.

There are 3 new servers.

They will all become part of the existing domain.

ALL SERVERS ARE RUNNING - Windows Server 2012.

CTCSVR003 - New Exchange Server 2013
CTCSVR004 - New Share Team Server 2013
CTCSVR005 - New Web Server IIS 8.0

I am googling everything to get up to speed but professional real world help is preferred.

I understand the domain / forest scheme updated as usual.

I do want to insure proper:

- Topology
- Domain Controller Integration - Should I make Exchange 2013 a Domain Controller???
- Split DNS - So when you leave the office with your Phone, Tablet, Laptop the settings with not need to be changed or forced to use OWA.
- Do make just a member server with the DNS setup as just a primary DNS server of its own with just the IP addresses of the DNS / Domain Controllers in its DNS and IP setup???

Any thing I might need to research more that i left out please - Push me any direction you see I need to look at further.  

Thanks, For all your help.

Install Exchange 2013 on member servers only.Do not install on servers having DC role installed.Its not required.
You can use SplitDNS with same internal and external URLs
RPC over HTTPs (Outlook anywhere) is the secure option available
Point all your member servers to Domain controller for name resolution
