Exchange Server 2013 Server requirements
Posted on 2014-04-11
I need to install Exchange server 2013 on a windows server 2012 R2 machine.
I have read that it is recommended to install on a member server.
Does Active directory and DNS roles need to be installed prior to the installation?
I already have a domain controller with Active Directory and DNS installed.
I already tried the installation without the above, after installation active directory was installed and i can see the users in the list but am unable to join a outlook client to the server. keeps saying cant find exchange server. I installed all the pre requisites and the installation went through ok but not sure if I have done this correctly. It seems like a DNS issue but not sure.
If I have stuffed up installation is it easy to remove the entire exchange setup and active directory objects and redo it?
Also I realise that I need Exchange 2013 SP1 to work with windows server 2012 r2.
Can I just install this while exchange 2013 has been installed?
I am coming from a exchange 2003 environment so am I right to think that if all is ok
I can just add a new email account and select the exchange mailbox and input the servername and user and it should work ?
I can get to the exchange box from the web interface just not any outlook client?
Any thoughts appreciated.
