trying to price up a cheap server for home, i've already got a HP ML350 so i'm ordering another 16GB RAM for it and an addition 1TB hard disk to mirror.
I am just wondering, If I purchase Windows Server 2012 Foundation can i install exchange on that, or od I have to have the full blown version?
I cant find a definite answer anywhere online
We don’t support the installation of Exchange 2013 on a computer that’s running in Windows Server Core mode. The computer must be running the full installation of Windows Server. If you want to install Exchange 2013 on a computer that’s running in Windows Server Core mode, you must convert the server to a full installation of Windows Server by doing one of the following:
Windows Server 2008 R2 Reinstall Windows Server and select the Full Installation option.
Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2012 Convert your Windows Server Core mode server to a full installation by running the following command.
