There is nothing different to doing it with all roles on the same server. Just install the prerequisites then do a custom installation and choose the required parts.

Otherwise you will need to provide more detail on what you are looking for - everything is documented on TechNet.

The Exchange 2010 installation is pretty strightforward. If you are simply looking to spin up another Exchange server make sure that your CAS servers are configured in a load balancing scenario. If you don't they will be dependent on each other and if one goes down there will be issues.

Just install the prerequisites based on the role, then install exchange server 2010-> you can select role CAS or HUB or MBX for different servers.

You should install the below order recommended by MS

1. CAS
2. HUB
3. MBX

Thanks for above suggestions.

Do i need to perform (run)  domain prep switch on all roles to be installed on different physical machines?
Simon Butler (Sembee)ConsultantCommented:
Prep is a one time thing.
If you use setup.exe then it will be run automatically the first time it is detected as being needed - you shouldn't need to do it again, unless you have servers in separate domains within the forest. In that scenario you should run prep in each domain from the command line before doing the install of the service pack.
