Installing Exchange 2010 on Windows 2008 R2 Server

Roger Crawford Roger Crawford Profile: Roger Crawford

I was working on my ISA in front of a SBS 2008 server and got myself side tracked again. Well I setup a 2008 R2 domain controller running on my 2008 R2 HyperV Server and then seen they had released the beta of Exchange 2010. Ok I thought I wonder if this will run on my test domain and at first glance I found that it wasn’t suppose to be able to. But I keep digging and found a few that had actually set this up on a 2008 R2 server. So ok I setup a member quickly on the domain and installed Exchange 2010 on the the 2008 R2 server. The articles that are out there now that tell you how to setup Exchange 2010 on a 2008 Server that you need to download this update and the Power Shell 2.0 well you don’t have to do those as they are already in 2008 R2 server. But the install went fine and rather straight forward and pretty much like Exchange 2007 installs.

When I got the Exchange installed I got some Access denied errors but I made sure I did this on the Exchange Server and then I could get around in the management just fine.

Disable anonymous auth in IIS on the Power Shell Virtual Directory
set-user yourusername -remotepowershellenabled:$true

and I ran this from the Exchange Power Shell



But from first glance of the Exchange 2010 right now it is pretty much the same look of Exchange 2007. But there has been changes as something was not where I expected them to be but it makes sense. So I will post more on this as I play with this more and see what is all there. One thing I have found is you can text message to your mobile phone from the OWA. Will have to see if that will have any advantages or not.


til Later just Roger

    I did not install the Exchange 2010 on the SBS 2008 Server haven't tried that yet. I am guessing Exch10 will be on the next version of SBS so I will probably just wait for that.. Roger
