 This topic explains how to use the setup wizard or the command prompt to install Microsoft® Exchange Server "12" in a test environment. To perform an unattended setup, you must install Exchange Server "12" from the command prompt. 

Before You Begin

  1. Before you perform the procedures in this topic, confirm the following: 
  2. Your organization meets the requirements listed in Exchange Server 12 System Requirements.

  3. The user account that you use to install Exchange Server "12" meets the permission requirements. Make sure that you are logged on by using an account that has the following group memberships:
  4. Local Administrator on the server

  5. Active Directory® Schema Administrator if you are installing the first Exchange Server "12" server in the organization
  6. Active Directory
    Enterprise Administrator
  7. Active Directory Domain Administrator

Procedure

To use the setup wizard to install Exchange Server "12" 

  1. Log on to the server on which you want to install Exchange Server "12".

  2. Create a directory called Exchange12 on the drive where you want to download the Exchange installation files. For example, C:\Exchange12.
  3. Go to the Microsoft Connect Web site. If you are installing Exchange on a server with 64-bit architecture, select the 64-bit download from the Exchange Server "12" page on the Microsoft Connect Web site.
  4. If you are installing Exchange on a server with 32-bit architecture, select the 32-bit download from the Exchange page at the Microsoft Connect Web site.
  5. Note:  Installing Exchange Server "12" on 32-bit architecture is supported in testing or training environments, but not in production environments. In production environments, you must install Exchange Server "12" on 64-bit architecture.
  6. When prompted for the location to download the files, navigate to the Exchange12 directory that you created in step 2.
  7. After the download is complete, on the Start menu, click Run and then type C:\Exchange12\Setup.EXE, where C is the drive where you downloaded the Exchange installation files.
  8. On the Start page, click Install Microsoft Exchange Server.
  9. Setup.exe checks if you have the Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0 installed. If you do not, Setup.exe starts the setup wizard for the ..NET Framework version 2.0, and the Welcome to Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Setup page appears. If you already have the .NET Framework 2.0 installed, go to step 10.
  10. On the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Setup End-User License Agreement page, click I accept the terms of the License Agreement, and then click Install.
  11. On the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Setup Complete page, click Finish.
  12. Setup.exe checks if you have Microsoft Management Console (MMC) version 3.0 installed. If you do not, Setup.exe starts the setup wizard for MMC, and the Microsoft Management Console 3.0 Pre-Release Installation Wizard page appears. If you already have MMC version 3.0 installed, go to step 14.
  13. Note:  Before you install MMC version 3.0, it is recommended that you close any open MMC windows. If you install MMC version 3.0 while an MMC window is open, you must restart your computer after the installation.
  14. On the Software Update Installation Wizard page, click Next.
  15. On the Software Update Installation Wizard License Agreement page, click I Agree, and then click Next.
  16. On the Completing the Microsoft Management Console 3.0 Pre-Release Installation Wizard page, click Finish.
  17. Setup.exe copies the setup files locally to the computer on which you are installing Exchange.
  18. In the Microsoft Exchange Server Installation wizard, on the Introduction page, click Next.
  19. On the End-User License Agreement page, click I Accept, and then click Next.
  20. On the Server Role Selection page, select the server roles that you want to install on the computer. If you want to change the path for the Exchange installation, click Browse, locate the appropriate folder in the directory tree, and then click OK.
  21. On the Server Role Selection page, click Next.
  22. On the Installation Pre-Checks page, if the organization and server role prerequisite checks complete successfully, click Install to install Exchange.
  23. Note:  After you click Install, you cannot cancel the installation.
  24. On the Completion page, click Finish.

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page
layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what
youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
