Exchange 2010 prereqs on Server 2012

Dot Net Framework 3.5 and Windows Powershell 2.0 needs the Windows Server 2012 image mounted as the side by side store (sxs) source files are not available locally after install – you only need to use the source files if you don’t have internet access to Windows Updates from your box – which was the case for me. You don’t have to uninstall Dot Net Framework 4.5 or Windows PowerShell 3.0.

To install Dot Net Framework 3.5 and Windows Powershell 2.0 via PowerShell using SXS source files:

Import-Module ServerManager
Install-WindowsFeature NET-Framework-Core,PowerShell-V2 –Source E:\Sources\sxs

Where E:\ is the drive where you mounted the Windows Server 2012 image file.

The rest of the MultiRole prerequisites (I install telnet client additionally for troubleshooting purposes):

Install-WindowsFeature Telnet-Client,RSAT-ADDS, RSAT-Clustering,Web-Server,Web-Basic-Auth,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Metabase,Web-Net-Ext,Web-Request-Monitor,Web-Static-Content,Web-Mgmt-Console,Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console,Web-WMI,WAS-Process-Model,Web-Asp-Net,Web-Client-Auth,Web-ISAPI-Ext,Web-ISAPI-Filter,Web-Http-Errors,Web-Http-Logging,Web-Http-Redirect,Web-Http-Tracing,Web-Digest-Auth,Web-Dir-Browsing,Web-Dyn-Compression,NET-HTTP-Activation,RPC-Over-HTTP-Proxy –Restart
