I we  have Windows 2008R2 and recently we have installed Exchange 2013 on our network.
I would like to install the Microsoft Exchange server 2013- Exchange Management shell on the windows 2008R2 server.
Also, I would like the account that I use to be a member of the Exchange “Organizational Management” role group.

Please post me step by steps as how to install and set up this.
Any help would be great.

Please use the command line as shown in the first link, it is different from what MAS posted:
setup /m:install /r:t /InstallWindowsComponents /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerm

Open in new window

If you are going to use PowerShell, you must use ".\setup" instead of just "setup".

I recommend you use cmd.exe.

The error is actually complaining about the last parameter, which should be /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms - note the terminal 's'. If all you want is ManagementTools, then the command from @MAS is correct - except you used PS instead of cmd.exe.

So, for PowerShell

.\Setup.exe /Role:ManagementTools /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms

Open in new window

and for cmd.exe

Setup.exe /Role:ManagementTools /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms

Open in new window
