Prepare Windows 2008 server for Exchange 2007

With the following script, you can prepare Windows 2008 server for installing Exchange 2007. This will save a lot of time… 🙂

Script: Exchange2007_pre_2008.cmd

ServerManagerCmd -i PowerShell
ServerManagerCmd -i Web-Server
ServerManagerCmd -i Web-ISAPI-Ext
ServerManagerCmd -i Web-Metabase
ServerManagerCmd -i Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console
ServerManagerCmd -i Web-Basic-Auth
ServerManagerCmd -i Web-Digest-Auth
ServerManagerCmd -i Web-Windows-Auth
ServerManagerCmd -i Web-Dyn-Compression
ServerManagerCmd -i RSAT-ADDS

The reboot is needed for the last command ServerManagerCmd -i RSAT-ADDS (Active Directory Domain Services Tools). The server is now ready for installing Exchange 2007.
