Exchange 2010 Prerequisites

When installing a typical Exchange 2010 setup (CAL, HUB and MBX roles) there are a couple of pre-requisites.

  • Install the Microsoft Filter Pack (x64):
  • Install the needed features in Windows:
    Import-Module ServerManger
    Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework,RSAT-ADDS,Web-Server,Web-Basic-Auth,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Metabase,Web-Net-Ext,Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console,WAS-Process-Model,RSAT-Web-Server,Web-ISAPI-Ext,Web-Digest-Auth,Web-Dyn-Compression,NET-HTTP-Activation,RPC-Over-HTTP-Proxy –Restart
  • Set the "Net.TCP Port Sharing Service" to start automatically:
    Set-Service NetTcpPortSharing -StartupType Automatic

If you skip any of these you'll get warnings or errors during the pre-requisites check.
