I am trying to install Exch 2010, in a test domain, on my Win2008R2 server which is a virtual guest running with a Win2008R2 host. I am using the lastest TechNet download. There are no other Exchange servers in the domain.
In trying and failing to install Exch 2010. It starts then gets a long list of errors. I found a MS webpage (technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/BB691354) that describes a series of Powershell scripts that need to be run in prep for Exch 2010 install. The first script ran but the second keeps coming up with an error that one of the commands is not recognized by Powershell.
On both the guest VM and the host I have installed .NET 3.5.1
What's my problem?
Also, is there a simpler way to prepare a server for Exch 2010?
