This article applies to:

Exchange 2010, Windows 2008 SP2, English, 64bit

Exchange 2010, Windows 2008 R2, English, 64 bit

 

PROBLEM:

Exchange 2010 setup does detailed check on prerequisites, but does not install them for you. You are expected to  manually install and configure all required hotfixes, server components and services which is inefficient and time consuming.


SOLUTION:  

Use one of the batch files provided below. The batch file takes care of everything (installs hotfixes, enables required services, installs Windows server components, reboots the server)  and is optimized to do everything in a single pass with a single reboot (if required).

 

Two variations of the batch files are provided:

a) ex2010.bat - this one will present you with menu options and allow you to select individually for which Exchange roles you would like prerequisites to be installed (for example just for mailbox role).

b) ex2010turbo.bat - this one is a "full auto" script which installs all the prerequisites for all Exchange roles without any input required from the user. Start it, go for a coffee, and by the time you are back your server is restarted with everything installed on it, ready for Exchange 2010 to be deployed. 


Prerequisites are different for Windows 2008 SP2  and Windows 2008 R2, so please make sure you use correct version of the scripts and updates.


The batch files are available for download as an ISO image file or a ZIP file .
