Step 3:

Now Download and install the Prerequisites

1. Microsoft Unified Communications Managed API 4.0, Core Runtime 64-bit





2. Microsoft Office 2010 Filter Pack 64 bit




3. Microsoft Office 2010 Filter Pack SP1 64 bit




Step 4:


Because we installed a lot of components it is a good idea to check Windows update again for updates. In my case the only available update is for the Internet explorer flash player.

Now we can in install Exchange 2013. I used the following command line:


Setup.exe /role:ClientAccess,Mailbox /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms


New for this is the /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms parameter, you need to add this otherwise the installation stops with a message for you that need to accept the license.


The installation starts and you can see the progress during the setup process.




If everything is correct you will get an overview like above.


A final reboot is required, and our second Exchange server is ready for use.

Verification : Check if you are able to open Exchange Admin Center.
