Module Overview• Overview of Exchange Server 2010 Requirements• Installing Exchange Server 2010 Server Roles• Completing an Exchange Server 2010 Installation
Lesson 1: Overview of Exchange Server 2010Requirements• Reviewing Active Directory Components• Discussion: Reviewing Active Directory Implementations• Reviewing Active Directory Partitions• How Exchange Server 2010 Uses AD DS• Reviewing DNS Requirements for Exchange Server 2010• Preparing AD DS for Exchange Server 2010• Demonstration: Integration of AD DS and Exchange Server 2010
Discussion: Reviewing Active DirectoryImplementations• Under what circumstances would an organization deploy multiple domains in the same forest?• Under what circumstances might an organization deploy multiple forests?• What type of information do domains in a forest share?
Reviewing Active Directory Partitions Partition Type DescriptionDomain • All of the objects in the directory for a domain • Replicated to all domain controllers in a domainConfiguration • Configuration information for AD DS and applications • Replicated to all domain controllers in the entire forestSchema • All object types, and their attributes, that you can create in AD DS • Replicated to all domain controllers in the entire forestApplication • All specific application data that the application requires • Replicated to all domain controllers in the entire forest with a replica of the partition
How Exchange Server 2010 Uses AD DS Exchange organization and Active Directory forest: one-to-one relationship Forests Exchange object classes and attributes Schema Exchange configuration Configuration Exchange recipients Domain Exchange object attributes for mail-enabled and Global Catalog mailbox-enabled objects
Reviewing DNS Requirements forExchange Server 2010Exchange Server 2010 requires: SRV records to locate domain controllers Host records to locate other servers MX records to locate mail servers in other organizations DNS Record Type Example SRV _ldap._tcp.Contoso.com. IN SRV 0 100 389 SEA- DC1.Contoso.com Host SEA-EX1.Contoso.com. IN A 10.10.10.10 MX MX 10 SEA-EX1.Adatum.com
Preparing AD DS for Exchange Server 2010 Setup switch Description /PrepareAD • Prepares the global Exchange objects /OrganizationName: • Creates the Exchange universal security ”organizationname” groups in the root domain • Prepares the current domain /PrepareLegacy • Required if the organization includes ExchangePermissions previous versions of Exchange Server /PrepareSchema • Prepares the schema for the Exchange Server 2010 installation /PrepareDomain • Prepares the domain by creating a new global group called Exchange Install /PrepareDomain Domain Servers domainname /PrepareAllDomains
Demonstration: Integration of AD DS andExchange Server 2010In this demonstration, you will review:• The Exchange security groups in AD DS• The Exchange information stored in AD DS• The Exchange attributes in the Active Directory schema
Lesson 2: Installing Exchange Server 2010Server Roles• Overview of Server Roles in Exchange Server 2010• Deployment Options for Exchange Server 2010• Hardware Recommendations for Combining Server Roles• Options for Integrating Exchange Server 2010 and Exchange Online Services in Office 365• Infrastructure Requirements for Exchange Server 2010• Server Requirements for Exchange Server 2010• Considerations for Deploying Exchange Server 2010 As a Virtual Machine• Process for Installing Exchange Server 2010• Unattended Installation Options
Overview of Server Roles in Exchange Server 2010In Exchange Server 2010, servers are installed with specificfunctional roles: • Hub Transport Server role • Mailbox Server role • Client Access Server role • Edge Transport Server role • Unified Messaging Server role
Deployment Options for Exchange Server 2010 Small Organization Medium-Size Organization Hybrid Large Organization
Hardware Recommendations for CombiningServer RolesYou can combine all server roles, except the Edge Transportserver role, on one server Component Recommendation Processor • Minimum: 2 cores • Recommended: 8 • Maximum: 24 • Plan on using half the processor cores for the mailbox server role Memory • Recommended: 8 GB plus 2-10 MB per mailbox • Maximum: 64 GBWhen combining server roles, reduce the maximum number ofmailboxes by 20%You can combine server roles with Mailbox servers that areDAG members
Options for Integrating Exchange Server 2010and Exchange Online Services in Office 365Exchange Online Services: • Is a part of the Office 365 • Enables email and calendar functionality hosted by Microsoft • Enables email coexistence and migration of mailboxes and global address lists • Enables both on-premise and hosted mailboxes with Exchange Server 2010
Infrastructure Requirements forExchange Server 2010 Infrastructure Requirements Component • Schema master must be running Windows Server 2003 (SP1 or newer), Windows Server 2008, or Windows Server 2008 R2 • All global catalog servers must be running Windows Server 2003 (SP1 or newer), Windows Server 2008, or Windows Server 2008 R2 • Domain and forest functional levels must be at least Windows 2003 AD DS DNS • Must be configured to enable domain controller and global catalog server name resolution
Server Requirements for Exchange Server 2010Resource RequirementsProcessor • Intel 64-bit architecture • AMD64 architecture Memory • 2 gigabytes (GB) minimum • Additional memory required based on server role and load Disk • 1.2 GB free disk space for Exchange Server files • 200 megabytes (MB) free on the system driveFile System • NTFS file system for all drives Software requirements: • 64-bit edition of Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard, or Enterprise Edition • AD DS management tools • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 • Windows Remote Management 2.0 • Windows PowerShell version 2.0 • Additional components based on server roles
Considerations for Deploying Exchange Server 2010As a Virtual Machine• You can deploy all Exchange server roles on virtual machines running on a supported virtualization platform• Design the Exchange server deployment to fully utilize the server resources• Consider the high-availability features in Exchange Server 2010 as an alternative to highly available virtual machines• Consider using latest virtualization platform and latest Exchange server version• Design virtual hardware using the same criteria as physical hardware
Process for Installing Exchange Server 2010To install Exchange Server 2010: 1 Install prerequisite software (optionally) 2 Run setup.exe from the installation source 3 Install the Exchange language packs (if needed) 4 Choose the option to install Exchange Server 2010 5 Choose the installation type 6 Provide the Exchange organization name (if needed) 7 Choose the option to enable Outlook 2003 or earlier clients 8 Configure the Client Access server external name
Unattended Installation Options Parameter Options Description /mode • Install, Upgrade, • Specifies the Setup Uninstall, Recoverserver program actions • Default: Install /roles • HubTransport, HT, H • Specifies which roles to install • ClientAccess, CA, C • EdgeTransport, ET, E • Mailbox, MB, M • UnifiedMessaging, UM, U • ManagementTools, MT, T /ServerAdmin • User or group • Specifies an account with Exchange Server permission/NewProvisionedServer • Server name • Creates Exchange computer account for • /ServerAdmin: User delegated installation
Lab A: Installing Exchange Server 2010• Exercise 1: Evaluating Requirements for an Exchange Server Installation• Exercise 2: Preparing for an Exchange Server 2010 Installation• Exercise 3: Installing Exchange Server 2010Logon informationEstimated time: 60 minutes
Lab ScenarioYou are working as a messaging administrator in Contoso Ltd.Your organization is preparing to install its first Exchange Server2010 server. Contoso Ltd. is a large multinational organizationthat includes offices in Seattle, Washington, in the UnitedStates, and in Tokyo, Japan.Contoso Ltd. does not have a previous version of ExchangeServer deployed so you do not have to upgrade a previousmessaging system. Before installing Exchange Server 2010, youmust verify that the Active Directory environment is ready forthe installation. You also must verify that all computers that willrun Exchange Server 2010 meet the prerequisites for installingExchange.
