I am using the Rapid-Transition-Guide-Fro
10.pdf document, and this document pertains to Windows Server 2008 R2 specifically. I will be installing Exchange 2010 on a Windows Server 2012 Standard Hyper-V VM in a Windows 2003 AD environment.
The first issue I ran into pertains to the Service Configuration as displayed on Page 8. It states running the following command "sc config NetTcpPortSharing start=auto ServerManagerCmd -ip Exchange-Typical.sml - Restart". Set-Content : A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument "start=auto"... I am thinking this command is not necessary on Windows Server 2012. Can you please confirm this?
I downloaded Exchange 2010 SP1 from Microsoft's Volume Licensing website. I also downloaded "Exchange2010-SP3-x64.exe from Microsoft as well.
I need to know how do I go about preparing legacy exchange permissions and active directory schema? What I mean is I know I will navigate to the Exchange 2010 SP1 folder that was extracted from the ISO, and use setup.com from there. However, that's SP1. Is this sufficient for an Exchange 2010 installation on a Windows Server 2012 server? Do I need to run these commands several times, etc?
This document states running the following commands:
I am also looking at another document:
That indicates running "Setup /preparead /organizationname:oxfordsb
Do need to run this command as well, or simply disregard it?
For now, I simply copied the above mentioned Exchange SP3 file to the "Updates" folder that was created by extracting the Exchange 2010 SP1 ISO.
Once I get past updating the AD schema and properly preparing the existing 2003 AD domain, and I begin installing Exchange 2010. I have a question about the command line displayed on page 10 of the Rapid-Transition-Guide...
I am a bit confused as Command Line on Windows 2008 R2 -
Specifically the /LegacyRoutingServer:Excha
I want to know if "Exchange2003.exchange.com
" and "mail.exchange.com" are the values I actually use in my installation. I do not think so,
As an example, if we currently use mail.xyz.com for our MX record, and that's what the existing Exchange 2003 server publishes, then I would think "/ExternalCASServerDomain:
om" would apply, and I am not sure of the "/LegacyRoutingServer:????
" portion altogether.
I need clarification as to how these switches need to be defined.
