  • Exchange Setup

    Is there any way to setup an exchange server so that it can be fully configured with accounts ect. offsite and then delivered to a client site to so they can just "connect it to their network" and make adjustments for their enviroment?

    Thanks in advance

    To setup exchange properly you will need access to the network.

    This will allow you to follow the correct procedure for setting up the domain for email. You need to edit the schema of the network.

      It can be automated but it can't be set up isolated from Active Directory. Exchange has many ties into AD that it must be able to configure during setup. In fact, before you even begin the Exchange setup, you must run forestprep and domainprep on the AD domain controller which holds the Schema Master FSMO role in order to extend the AD schema for Exchange. After that, Exchange setup must be run but again it needs to do a lot of talking to AD so your new Exchange server must be WELL CONNECTED to AD.

        Would there be any problems just building the server with the OS, fully patching the OS then at the client site choose a role for the server and install Exchange at the client site?

          That would be a preferred method.

          Just make sure when you get to the client site you have Domain Admin and Enterprise Admin level permissions in order to complete the necessary steps, or have someone on hand who has the necessary credentials, or else it will be a very short installation process.

            Probably the best and easiest method of doing it.

            You will need to install exchange on the AD domain or at least ahve access to it.
