This topic explains how to install the Mailbox server role on the passive node for a clustered mailbox server (CMS) in a single copy cluster (SCC) on Windows Server 2003. You can install the passive node by using the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) Setup wizard (Setup.exe) or by using the command-line version of Setup (Setup.com).

You can perform this procedure before or after the Mailbox server role has been installed on the active node. For detailed steps that explain how to install the Mailbox server role on the active node, see How to Install the Active Clustered Mailbox Role in a Single Copy Cluster on Windows Server 2003.

To install the Mailbox server role, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Server Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server. For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange 2007, see Permission Considerations.

  1. Use Windows Explorer to navigate to the location of the Exchange 2007 SP1 installation files, and then run the following command:

    Setup.exe
    
    noteNote:
    If you have installed the necessary prerequisite applications, you can click Step 4: Install Microsoft Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1 to proceed with the installation.
  2. On the Introduction page, review the information, and then click Next.

  3. On the License Agreement page, review the license agreement. If you accept the terms, select I accept the terms in the license agreement, and then click Next.

  4. On the Error Reporting page, review the information and make your selection. Click Next.

  5. On the Installation Type page, select Custom Exchange Server Installation. Optionally, change the location for the Exchange program files. If you specify a path, it must be on a local drive and not shared storage, and it must match the installation path used on the active node. Click Next.

  6. On the Server Role Selection page, select Passive Clustered Mailbox Role. The Management Tools role will be automatically selected, and other roles will be unavailable. Optionally, change the location for the Exchange program files. If you specify a path, it must be on a local drive and not shared storage, and it must match the installation path used on the active node. Click Next.

  7. On the Readiness Checks page, the status appears as the checks are performed. When the checks complete successfully, click Install. If any of the checks fail with errors, you must correct the issues that are identified, and then you can restart the installation.

  8. The Progress page shows the steps that will be performed. Progress is shown as each step is processed and completion status is provided as each step completes. When all steps complete successfully, clear the check box for Finalize installation using the Exchange Management Console, and then click Finish.

  9. After Setup has completed successfully, a message appears indicating that a restart is required. Click OK to acknowledge this message.

  10. After installation and configuration are complete, you are brought back to the initial Setup page to download Exchange updates and complete the setup on this node. Optionally, click Step 5: Get Critical Updates for Microsoft Exchange to download any available updates.

  11. Click Close to exit Setup.exe, and then restart the node.

  1. Open a Command Prompt window, navigate to the location of the Exchange 2007 SP1 installation files, and then run the following command:

    Setup /roles:Mailbox
    
    noteNote:
    If you need to place the program files in an alternate location, you can add /targetdir:<Path> to the command to specify the location. If you specify a path, it must be on a local drive and not shared storage, and it must match the path used by the active node.
  2. After Setup has completed successfully, a message appears indicating that a restart is required.

  3. Close the Command Prompt window, and then restart the node.
