Article Summary: This article provides information about the installation of Exchange 2007 on a single server
A typical installation of Exchange 2007 puts all the following roles on one server. After you install any Exchange 2007 server roles on a computer, you cannot use the Setup wizard to add any additional server roles to this computer. If you want to add more server roles to a computer, you must either use Add or Remove Programs from Control Panel or use Setup.com from a Command Prompt window.
Client Access server role
Hub Transport server role
Mailbox server role
Pre Requisites to Installing Exchange 2007
For e-mail messages to flow correctly, you must install both the Mailbox server role and the Hub Transport server role in each Active Directory directory service site.
For client access to work correctly, you must install a Client Access server in each Active Directory site that has a Mailbox server.
You can install the Mailbox server role, the Hub Transport server role, the Client Access server role, and the Unified Messaging server role on the same computer or on separate computers.
Confirm that your organization meets the requirements that are listed in Exchange 2007 System Requirements.
If you have any domain controllers that are running Windows 2000 Server and you are installing the release to manufacturing (RTM) version of Exchange 2007, you must run Setup.com from a Command Prompt window, and you must use the /DomainController parameter to specify a domain controller that is running Windows Server 2003 SP1.
To perform the following procedure, the account you use must be delegated membership in the Schema Administrators group if you have not previously prepared the Active Directory schema. If you are installing the first Exchange 2007 server in the organization, the account you use must have membership in the Enterprise Administrators group. If you have already prepared the schema and are not installing the first Exchange 2007 server in the organization, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Organization Administrator role.
Installation of Exchange 2007
Log on to the server on which you want to install Exchange 2007.
Insert the Exchange Server 2007 DVD into the DVD drive. If Setup.exe does not start automatically, navigate to the DVD drive and double-click Setup.exe.
On the Start page, complete Steps 1 through 3.
On the Start page, click Step 4: Install Microsoft Exchange. Setup copies the setup files locally to the computer on which you are installing Exchange 2007.
In the Exchange Server 2007 Setup wizard, on the Introduction page, click Next.
On the License Agreement page, select I accept the terms in the license agreement, and then click Next.
On the Customer Feedback page, choose the appropriate selection, and then click Next.
On the Installation Type page, click Typical Exchange Server Installation. If you want to change the path for the Exchange 2007 installation, click Browse, locate the appropriate folder in the folder tree, and then click OK.
If you are installing Exchange 2007 in a forest that has an existing Exchange Server 2003 or Exchange 2000 Server organization, on the Mail Flow Settings page, select a bridgehead server in the existing organization that is a member of the Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2000 routing group to which you want to create a routing group connector. The Exchange 2007 routing topology is based on Active Directory sites and does not use routing groups. However, to enable mail flow between Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2000, a routing group connector is required between the Exchange 2007 routing group and the routing group in the Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2000 organization.
If this is the first Exchange 2007 server in your organization, on the Exchange Organization page, type a name for your Exchange organization.
The Exchange organization name can contain only the following characters:
A through Z
a through z
0 through 9
Space (not leading or trailing)
Hyphen or dash
The organization name cannot contain more than 64 characters. The organization name cannot be blank. If the organization name contains spaces, you must enclose it in quotation marks.
If this is the first Exchange 2007 server in your organization, on the Client Settings page, click the option that describes the client computers in your organization that are running Microsoft Outlook. If you do have client computers that are running Outlook 2003 or earlier and you select Yes, Exchange 2007 will create a public folder database on the Mailbox server. If all of your client computers are running Office Outlook 2007, public folders are optional in Exchange 2007.
If you select No, Exchange 2007 will not create a public folder database on the Mailbox server. You can add a public folder database later. For example, if you add client computers that are running Outlook 2003 and you need a public folder database, you can create one on the Exchange 2007 Mailbox server. You must then configure the offline address book for public folder distribution, and then restart the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service before client computers that are running Outlook 2003 and earlier will be able to connect to the server.
On the Readiness Checks page, view the status to determine if the organization and server role prerequisite checks completed successfully. If they have completed successfully, click Install to install Exchange 2007.
On the Completion page, click Finish.
