After you have the right hardware chosen to support Exchange Server 2010, you now need to make sure that the software is ready. This includes getting the right version and edition of the operating system, software updates, and any prerequisite Windows roles or functions.

1. Operating System Requirements

The operating system requirements for Exchange Server 2010 are pretty cut and dried. Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 is the only operating system supported and only in one of the following configurations:

  • Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition x64 with Service Pack 2

  • Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition x64 with Service Pack 2

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition x64

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition x64

You may be a fan of the Server Core installation, but Exchange Server 2010 does not run on Server Core.

Name the Server Quickly!

Once you have installed Windows Server 2008, make sure that the server is assigned the correct name before you proceed. During installation, the Windows Server setup assigns a random name to the server. More than likely, this name will not be the one you want to use. Once Exchange Server 2010 is installed, you cannot change this name.


If you are planning on using the database availability group (DAG) high availability feature, you must use Windows Server 2008 Enterprise x64.

2. Additional Software

There are a few additional pieces of software that you will need to ensure are installed on Windows Server 2008 SP2 or R2 in addition to Exchange Server 2010:

  • Internet Information Server

  • .NET Framework v3.5 Service Pack 1

  • Office 2007 System Converter Filter Pack for Mailbox servers

Do not install the version of PowerShell or Windows Remote Management software that ships with Windows Server 2008; use the version that you download. During installation, you will be asked which features are required (Figure 1).
