Exchange 2010 Resource Domain Install on Windows Server 2008 R2

Some of the notes I took during a deployment I did for a 6 domain + 1 resource domain with Exchange 2010 server deployment:

1. The prerequities were installed (see script below or use the deprecated ServerManagerCMD via http://www.messagingtalk.org/exchange-2010-rc-quick-installation-guide).

2. The Office Filter Pack was installed on the Hub Transport and Mailbox servers. The package can be downloaded here:

3. Client Access Server required the service: "Net.Tcp Port Sharing Service" be changed from Manual to Auto by running below command in PowerShell:

Set-Service NetTcpPortSharing –StartupType Automatic

4. Added Enterprise Admins to all 3 servers’ Administrators group then logged into each server as the root enterprise admin account.

5. Logged onto the forest root domain controllers and ran Setup /prepareschema & Setup /preparead /organizationname: "First Organization".

6. Forced replication between domains.

7. Setup would keep complaining about step #3 not being performed if I simply hit the “retry” button to do the checks. It finally stopped complaining when I exited out of the original installation wizard and re-ran the setup again.

8. Setup /preparedomain was ran on the resource domain.

9. Installed Hub Transport server.

10. Installed Mailbox server.

11. Ran setup /preparedomain on all other domains (setup /preparealldomains would have worked too).
