  • Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B Presentation: 7 5 minutes Lab: 80 minutes After completing this module, students will be able to: Describe the infrastructure requirements to install Microsoft® Exchange Server 2010. Install Exchange Server 2010 server roles. Complete an Exchange Server 2010 installation. Required materials To teach this module, you need the Microsoft Office PowerPoint® file 10135 B _01.ppt. Important: We recommend that you use PowerPoint 2002 or a newer version to display the slides for this course. If you use PowerPoint Viewer or an earlier version, all the features of the slides might not display correctly. Preparation tasks To prepare for this module: Read all of the materials for this module. Practice performing the demonstrations and the lab exercises. Work through the Module Review and Takeaways section, and determine how you will use this section to reinforce student learning and promote knowledge transfer to on-the-job performance.   Note about the demonstrations : To prepare for the demonstrations, start the 10135 B -VAN-DC1 virtual machine and log on to the server before starting the other virtual machines. To save time during the demonstrations, log on to the Exchange servers and open the Exchange Server management tools before starting the demonstrations. Additionally, connect to the Microsoft Outlook® Web App site on the Exchange servers, and then log on as Administrator. It can take more than a minute to open the management tools and Outlook Web App for the first time.
  • Briefly describe module content. Ask students if they have any experience with previous Exchange Server versions, such as Exchange Server 2003 or Exchange Server 2007. Also, you can point out that whole this course will be discussing Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 2 (SP2), although branding will be Exchange Server 2010 on most places. Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • Remind students about the various components of Active Directory® D omain S ervices (AD DS) . It is important to ensure that all students have a good understanding of AD DS . Because Exchange Server 2010 requires AD DS to function, it is critical that students have at least a basic understanding of the Active Directory components and processes. Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • Discussion time: 15 minutes Question: Under what circumstances would an organization deploy multiple domains in the same forest? Answer: Some organizations deploy multiple domains to provide an administrative boundary. They want to be able to have one group of administrators with full control of part of the organization. Other organizations deploy additional domains to isolate replication traffic. In very large organizations, you can minimize the amount of replication traffic that is sent across a slow wide area network (WAN) link by deploying separate domains. Question: Under what circumstances might an organization deploy multiple forests? Answer: The primary reason to deploy multiple forests is to ensure that there is a complete security boundary between different parts of the organization's IT infrastructure. This could happen if an organization has multiple departments or business units that require isolation, or in the event of two organizations merging. Question: What type of information do domains in a forest share? Answer: All domains in a forest share the same Active Directory configuration information, Active Directory schema information, and a common global catalog. Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • Many students might be familiar with only the domain partition of AD DS. You can start this topic by asking them what type of information the domain partition includes, and then you can expand the discussion to describe what other partitions include. Ensure that you discuss the replication scope for each of the Active Directory partitions. Emphasize that the configuration and schema partitions are replicated to all domain controllers in the entire Active Directory forest. References Active Directory Logical Structure and Data Storage: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=179859 Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • While you discuss how Exchange Server 2010 uses AD DS, refer to the concept of partitions described in the previous topic. Stress the importance of the global catalog for Exchange Server deployments. All global address list information is stored in the global catalog. Both Exchange Servers and messaging clients cannot function without access to the global catalog. References Planning Active Directory: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=179860 Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • Review the importance of DNS and how all domain computers use DNS to locate domain controllers. Exchange Server services use DNS to locate a valid domain controller or a global catalog server. By default, each time a domain controller starts the Netlogon service, it updates DNS with service (SRV) records describing it as a domain controller and global catalog server (if applicable). To ensure that DNS records are updated properly, it is essential that all domain controllers use an internal DNS server that supports dynamic updates. After the domain controller registers the DNS records, computers running Exchange Server can use DNS to find domain controllers and global catalog servers. The service resource (SRV) records for domain controllers and global catalog servers are registered with several different variations so that computers running Exchange Server 2010 can find domain controllers and global catalog servers in several different ways. For example, DNS records can be registered by site name. This allows computers running Exchange Server to find domain controllers and global catalog servers in the local Active Directory site. DNS queries for resources are always performed for the local Active Directory site first. Consider opening the DNS console on the domain controller virtual machine to show students the SRV records that have been registered. Also, discuss the importance of mail exchanger (MX) records for messaging. Messaging systems use MX records to locate mail servers in external organizations. If an organization does not have MX records registered in their external DNS zone, they will not be able to receive email from the Internet. Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • While you describe the process for preparing AD DS for Exchange Server 2010, reference the schema master and infrastructure master domain controller roles. Explain why these roles are important. Also explain the permissions that are required to run each of the commands listed on the slide. Mention that if you do not specifically prepare AD DS and the domain before installation, it is prepared as part of a standard installation. Students might be confused about the process for upgrading AD DS to the Windows Server® 2008 operating system or the Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system and the process for preparing the forest for Exchange Server 2010. Emphasize that these are two different processes, and can be completed in any order. Also, mention that organizations can upgrade directly from Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 to Exchange Server 2010 without first upgrading to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. The Exchange Server 2010 schema changes include the Exchange Server 2007 schema changes. Mention that it is possible to install Exchange Server 2010 in a new organization without preparing AD DS as a separate step. This is possible when you are deploying Exchange Server 2010 in an organization with only a single Active Directory domain. However, when you are performing transition from a previous version of Exchange Server, or when you are deploying Exchange Server 2010 in an organization with multiple domains, you must prepare AD DS before installing the first Exchange Server. Mention that the following permissions are required to run the listed commands: /PrepareSchema  requires Schema Administrator and Enterprise Administrator rights. /PrepareAD requires Enterprise Administrator (and Exchange Organization Administrator rights if the Enterprise administrators have been explicitly denied access to the Exchange configuration) /PrepareDomain requires Domain Administrator rights References Exchange Server 2010 Help: Prepare Active Directory and Domains   Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • In this demonstration, you will use Active Directory Users and Computers to show the Exchange security groups in AD DS. These groups are created when AD DS is prepared for the Exchange Server installation. Do not spend much time describing the permissions assigned to each group at this point. Mention that Module 9 will provide details for each of the default groups. Also, you will use ADSIEdit.msc to show the Active Directory partitions and the Exchange Server information stored in each partition. You also will add the Schema partition to ADSIEdit.msc, and show some of the Exchange attributes that are added to the Active Directory schema. Preparation Ensure that the 10135 B -VAN-DC1 virtual machine is running. Log on to the virtual machine as Administrator with the password Pa$$w0rd . On VAN-DC1, click Start , point to Administrative Tools , and then click Active Directory Users and Computers . If necessary, expand Adatum.com , and then click the Microsoft Exchange Security Groups organizational unit. Double-click Organization Management , and then click the Members tab. The only default member of this group is the user that installed the first computer running Exchange Server. Members of this group have the necessary permissions to manage any aspect of the Exchange Server organization. Click Cancel . Double-click Recipient Management , and then click the Members tab. Verify that there are no group members. Members of this group are assigned full control permissions to manage the Exchange Server properties of user objects in AD DS. Click Cancel . Double-click the View-Only Organization Management group, and then click the Members tab. The members of this group are assigned read permissions to the Exchange Server container in the Active Directory configuration partition, and read permission to all domains that have Exchange Server recipients. Click Cancel . Double-click the Discovery Management group, and then click the Members tab. The members of this group have permission to search all mailboxes in the organization for messages or content that meets specific criteria. Click Cancel . Close Active Directory Users and Computers . Click Start , and in the Search box, type adsiedit.msc , and then press Enter. By default, when you open Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI) Edit in Windows Server 2008 R2, it does not display any partitions.

The schema container holds a list of classes and attributes that define the objects in AD DS. In the right page, click CN=ms-Exch-2003-Url , and then scroll down. Notice that many Exchange-specific attributes and classes have been added to the Active Directory schema. Close ADSI Edit. Question: How do you assign permissions in your Exchange organization? How will you assign permissions using the Exchange security groups? Answers will vary . Most small organizations will just have one set of administrators who will have full control of the Exchange organization. They can address the permission requirements by just adding the group to the Organization Management group. Organizations with more complex security requirements will need to use the other groups, or use custom role-based access control (RBAC) management roles. Question: Which Active Directory partition would you expect to contain the following information? User's email address: Answer – Domain partition or global catalog. Exchange connector for sending email to the Internet: Answer – Configuration partition. Exchange Server configuration: Answer – The configuration partition contains the Exchange Server-specific configuration information, but the Exchange Server computer object is also located in the domain partition. Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • The concept of server roles might be new to Exchange Server 2003 administrators, but Exchange Server 2007 administrators are familiar with server roles. If you have students who have Exchange Server 2003 experience only, be prepared to spend more time on this topic. Mention that the front-end and back-end servers in Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server and Exchange Server 2003 introduced the concept of separating server functions into multiple servers. If you have students with Exchange Server 2007 deployment experience, ask them how they have deployed the server roles in their organization. Mention that they may need to redesign some of the server role deployments because of some of the architectural changes to Exchange Server 2010. As you describe the Exchange Server roles, point out the graphics that represent each server role on the slide. These graphics will be used consistently throughout the course. References Overview: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=179873 Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • The deployment scenarios are organized into small, medium, and large organizations. Emphasize that the suggested configuration is typical, but not sufficient for every scenario. For example, some medium-size organizations may desire multiple servers for redundancy. If you have students in the class who are familiar with Exchange 2007, stress that in Exchange 2010, Mailbox servers that are part of a highly available deployment can also host other server roles. Mention that in Exchange Server 2010, except for the Edge Transport Server role, you can implement full redundancy for all other server roles with just two servers. At the end, discuss hybrid deployment of Exchange Server 2010 together with Microsoft Office 365. You don’t have to spend too much time on this deployment option since Module 13 discuss that in detail. References Topologies: Overview: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=179874 Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • Question: When would you combine server roles on single servers in your organization? Answer : Answers will vary. Most small organizations might combine multiple server roles on one or more servers. Large organizations are less likely to do this. Question : What are the benefits and disadvantages of combining server roles? Answer : The obvious benefit is that you can deploy the required Exchange server roles while reducing the organization’s hardware costs. The disadvantage for large organizations is that it becomes more difficult to plan the server hardware requirements. If only a single role is installed on a computer, it is much easier to monitor server performance and identify bottlenecks than it is with multiple roles. Stress the new option in Exchange Server 2010 that enables multiple server roles to be installed on Mailbox servers that are part of a Database Availability Group (DAG). The option of deploying multiple roles on a highly available Mailbox server has not been available in any of the previous Exchange Server versions. Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • Discuss the Exchange Online Services solution and how it provides email services for organizations. Briefly discuss Office365 as a hosted solution, and provide some examples and scenarios where integration with cloud-based platform can be benefitial. Reference Office 365 http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=248381 Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • Some students might not understand the schema master role, so if necessary, take a few moments to review the schema master role with students. Note that the schema master role exists once per forest, and that schema updates are performed through the domain controller that is the schema master. You also might want to review the concept of forest and domain functional levels. Reference Exchange Server 2010 Help: Exchange 2010 System Requirements Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • Review the installation requirements that are common for all server roles, and then describe the server requirements that are unique to each server role. References Exchange Server 2010 Help: Exchange 2010 System Requirements Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • Mention that because Exchange Server 2010 can be scaled to fully utilize the server hardware, large organizations might not consider it is as important to virtualize Exchange Servers. Mention that some virtualization products provide options for enabling high availability at the virtual machine level. Because Exchange Server provides several options for enabling high availability, you can deploy a highly available Exchange organization without using the high-availability options available in the virtualization products. In particular, if you deploy a DAG, and configure multiple copies of the mailbox databases, you should not use virtual machine-level high availability. Question: What are the benefits of virtualizing servers? Answer: Many organizations are using virtualization to significantly increase server utilization while decreasing hardware and power costs. Question: Discuss the benefits and disadvantages of using virtualization with Exchange Server 2010. Answer: Because you can add several thousand mailboxes to an Exchange Server 2010 server, you typically can utilize the hardware fully without virtualization. With the Exchange Server 2010 high availability models, this option becomes even more feasible. Emphasize that organizations should plan the hardware for virtual machines using the same criteria that they use for planning hardware for physical servers. References Microsoft Support Policies and Recommendations for Exchange Servers in Hardware Virtualization Environments http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=179877 Windows Server Virtualization Validation Program http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=179878 Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • Mention that the Exchange Server 2010 setup program is easy to use and understand. Tell students that they will use the Exchange Server 2010 Installation Wizard to install Exchange Server 2010 in the lab that follows. Explain the significance of choosing to support Outlook 2003 or earlier clients. If you do not select this option, public folder databases are not be created on the server, and none of the system folders that these clients use will be available. Explain the selection of server roles during installation to the students. A typical installation includes the Mailbox server, Hub Transport server, and Client Access server roles. At the end, mention that you should always update your Exchange Server to latest Service Pack and rollup package. References Exchange Server 2010 Help: Perform a Typical Exchange 2010 Installation Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • Discuss the command-line parameters available to install Exchange Server 2010. Mention that some of these commands, such as the /PrepareAD and the /DomainController options, are available only from the command line. References Exchange Server 2010 Help Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • In this lab, students will: Evaluate infrastructure and server requirements for an Exchange Server installation. Prepare the environment for an Exchange Server 2010 installation. Install Exchange Server 2010 server roles Exercise 1: Evaluating Requirements for an Exchange Server Installation In this exercise, students will evaluate infrastructure and server requirements for an Exchange Server installation. The main tasks for this exercise are: Evaluate the Active Directory requirements. Evaluate the DNS requirements. Evaluate the server requirements.

  • Exercise 3: Installing Exchange Server 2010 In this exercise, students will install Exchange Server 2010 server roles. Before the students begin the lab, read each exercise’s scenario to the class. This will reinforce the broad issue that the students are troubleshooting, and will help to facilitate the lab discussion at the end of the module. Remind the students to complete the discussion questions after the last lab exercise. Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • Course 10135B Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010
  • Use the questions on the slide to debrief students after they complete the lab exercises. Answers to the lab-review questions will vary depending on the organizations where the students work. If organizations have upgraded to the Windows Server 2003 operating system or Windows Server 2008 AD DS, they may not need to make any changes to AD DS. Most organizations will purchase server hardware that significantly exceeds the minimum required hardware for Exchange Server 2010. Ask students to describe the hardware they will purchase, and then follow with questions on the number of servers and number of mailboxes they will deploy.

  • Ask the students if they have a standard troubleshooting process that they follow. If you have students who have troubleshooting experience, encourage them to describe how they would approach troubleshooting an issue such as an installation that fails. Emphasize the importance of reviewing the contents of any message that displays during a setup failure and of reviewing the setup logs. These sources of information typically can pinpoint the reason for the setup failure. Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B
  • Question: What additional software would you install on an Exchange server? The slide provides some examples of software that organizations often will install on Exchange servers. Ask students for additional examples of the types of software or configuration settings they normally include in a server build. Question: What additional software might you need to install in organizations with other messaging systems? In organizations with other messaging systems, such as Lotus Domino or X.400-based messaging systems, you might need to install some type of connector on one or more Exchange servers. Question: What are the potential issues with installing additional software? You should verify that all of the software that you install on an Exchange Server are Exchange Server 2010 compatible. If you install an older version of software on the Exchange Server 2010 servers, the software installation might fail or cause problems for the Exchange Server 2010 installation.

  • Use the questions on the slide to debrief students after the complete the lab exercises. Answers to the second question will vary. Some organizations use the Exchange Server Best Practices Analyzer only once, after the initial deployment. Other organizations regularly run the tool. Recommend to the students that they should run the tool regularly, and especially when they are troubleshooting an issue with the Exchange deployment.

  • Review Questions The installation of Exchange Server 2010 fails. What information sources can you use to troubleshoot the issue? Answer: The two most important sources of information are the error message that displays when the installation fails, and the setup logs. In most cases, these sources of information will clearly indicate why the installation fails. A third option is to review the server’s event logs. What factors should you consider while purchasing new servers for your Exchange Server 2010 deployment? Answer : The most important consideration is that you can install Exchange Server 2010 only on 64-bit hardware, which means that you must buy this type of hardware. Additional considerations include capacity planning and redundancy requirements. How would the deployment of additional Exchange Server 2010 servers vary from the deployment of the first server? Answer : When you deploy the second server, you do not need to be concerned with the Active Directory prerequisites, as these will already have been configured for the first server installation. Additionally, you are more likely to install specific server roles if you deploy multiple servers. Common Issues Related to Deploying Exchange Server 2010 Identify the causes for the following common issues pertaining to installing Exchange Server 2010, and fill in the troubleshooting tips. For answers, refer to relevant lessons in the module. Real-World Issues and Scenarios An organization has a main office and multiple smaller branch offices. What criteria would you use to decide whether to install an Exchange server in a branch office? What additional factors should you consider if you decide to deploy an Exchange server in the branch office? Answer: The most important criteria is the number of users in the branch office, and the bandwidth between the branch office and main office. If the number of users is low, and there is enough available bandwidth for the users to have a positive experience with email, you might choose not to deploy Exchange servers in the office. Module 1: Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Course 10135B Issue Troubleshooting tip You start the Exchange installation and get an error message stating that you do not have sufficient permissions. Verify that you are logged on to the domain. Verify the account has sufficient permissions. You start the Exchange installation and the prerequisite check fails. Verify that the server meets the software requirements. You run setup with /PrepareAD parameter and receive an error message. Ensure that you are running setup in the same Active Directory site as the schema master domain controller.
  • Answer (contd.) If the branch office has a large number of users, or if the client connections to Exchange servers in the main office are slow, you may choose to put an Exchange server in the office. If you put an Exchange Server 2010 server in a branch office, you must ensure that you deploy a Mailbox server, Client Access server, and Hub Transport server, and that you deploy a global catalog server in the office. An organization has deployed AD DS within two different forests. What issues will this organization experience when they deploy Exchange Server 2010? Answer: Organizations with multiple forests need to decide whether to deploy two Exchange organizations, or a single Exchange organization and enable user accounts from one forest to access mailboxes in the other forest. If the organization deploys multiple forests, it will need to plan for the replication of information such as free/busy information between the forests. An organization is planning to deploy Exchange Server 2010 servers as virtual machines running on Hyper-V® in Windows Server 2008 R2. What factors should the organization consider in their planning? Answer: Firstly, the organization should be aware that they cannot deploy Unified Messaging servers on virtual machines. Secondly, the organization should consider whether to use Hyper-V to provide high availability for the Exchange servers, or to use the built-in Exchange high availability options. For Mailbox servers, we recommend strongly that you use DAGs. For other Exchange server roles, it is more feasible to use the Hyper-V failover component. Best Practices for Deploying Exchange Server 2010 Help the students understand the best practices presented in this section. Ask students to consider these best practices in the context of their own business situations. Plan the hardware specifications for your Exchange Server 2010 servers to allow for growth. In most organizations, the amount of email traffic and the size of the user mailboxes are growing rapidly. Consider deploying at least two Exchange Server 2010 servers. With two servers, you can provide complete redundancy for the core Exchange server roles. When deploying multiple Exchange servers with dedicated server roles for each server, deploy the server roles in the following order: Client Access server Hub Transport server Mailbox server Unified Messaging server You can deploy the Edge Transport server at any time, but it does not integrate automatically with your organization until you deploy a Hub Transport server.
