This article contains detailed descriptions of each of the parameters for Setup.com in Microsoft® Exchange Server 2007.

Microsoft Exchange Server 2007

Exchange 2007 Setup introduces a range of new functionality and capabilities by means of several new parameters available through the command-line tool.

To help improve the installation experience, the following is a list of all the parameters available in Exchange 2007 Setup along with an explanation of what the parameter does, its exact usage and values, remarks for additional information, and many examples.

noteNote:

The following tables contain information about each of the Setup.com parameters.

Table 1   Mode parameter

Mode parameter Description

Explanation

The mode parameter directs the Setup mode. The default mode is install.

Use the mode parameter to install, upgrade, uninstall, or recover server roles.

Use Setup /mode:install to install a new Exchange 2007 server or add new server roles on an already installed Exchange 2007 server.

Use Setup /mode:upgrade to upgrade and existing server that is running the release to manufacturing (RTM) version of Exchange 2007 to Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

Use Setup /mode:uninstall (without specifying any server roles) to completely remove the Exchange server from the Active Directory® directory service and the local computer. Use the /roles parameter with Setup /mode:uninstall to remove specific server roles from an already installed Exchange 2007 server.

Use Setup /mode:RecoverServer to read Exchange configuration information from Active Directory for a server that you need to recover. The Exchange files and services are then installed on the new server on which you run Setup /mode:RecoverServer, and the roles and settings that were stored in Active Directory are then applied to that server. Do not specify what roles to restore, because Setup will detect the Exchange Server object in Active Directory (assuming Active Directory is not corrupted) and install the corresponding files and configuration automatically. After the server is recovered, the administrator can then restore databases and any additional configuration. For more information about recovering a server, see Understanding Setup /M:RecoverServer.

To recover a clustered server node, use Setup /mode:RecoverServer, and then use /RecoverCMS to restore the clustered mailbox server. For more information, see the /RecoverCMS information later in this document.

Type

Required if installing, upgrading, or uninstalling roles, or recovering a server.

Usage

/mode:<mode>

/m:<mode>

Values

install   Runs Setup in install mode.

upgrade   Runs Setup in upgrade mode.

uninstall   Runs Setup in uninstall mode.

RecoverServer   Runs Setup in recovery mode.

Default value: install

Remarks

If /mode is not specified, Setup will run in install mode.

Installing any server role automatically installs the management tools.

If you run in upgrade mode, Setup upgrades all the server roles that are installed on the server.

To uninstall a clustered server hosting the clustered mailbox server, see the /RemoveCms information.

To run RecoverServer mode, there can be no Exchange bits on the server and the Exchange Server object must exist in Active Directory. The recovered server must have the same name as the Exchange Server object in Active Directory.

Examples

Setup.com /mode:install /role:Mailbox,HubTransport /TargetDir:C:\Exchange2007

Installs the Mailbox and Hub Transport server roles and the management tools into the C:\Exchange2007 directory.

C:\Exchange2007\bin\Setup.com /m:install /r:C /SourceDir:d:\amd64

Adds the Client Access server role to the existing Exchange server using D:\AMD64 as the source directory for the Exchange bits.

Setup.com /mode:upgrade

Upgrades Exchange 2007 RTM to Exchange 2007 SP1.

Setup.com /mode:uninstall /role:Hub

Removes the Hub Transport server role from the server.

Setup.com /mode:uninstall

Completely removes Exchange from the server and removes this server's configuration from Active Directory.

Table 2   Roles parameter

Roles parameter Description

Explanation

Use the roles parameter to specify which server roles to install or uninstall.

Type

Required if installing or uninstalling server roles.

ClientAccess, CA, C

Mailbox, MB, M

UnifiedMessaging, UM, U

EdgeTransport, ET, E

ManagementTools, MT, T

Default value: none

Remarks

The roles parameter must be used in conjunction with the /mode parameter. If the /mode parameter is not specified, Setup will default to install mode.

The management tools are automatically installed when any server role is installed. There is no need to specify ManagementTools when installing other server roles. The only time ManagementTools needs to be specified is when setting up an administrator-only computer. ManagementTools is also the only role that can be installed on a computer running Microsoft Windows® XP.

Examples

Setup.com /mode:install /role:EdgeTransport

Installs the Edge Transport server role and the management tools.

Setup.com /r:M,C,U

Installs Mailbox, Client Access, and Unified Messaging server roles and the management tools.

Setup.com /mode:install /role:Mailbox,HubTransport /TargetDir:C:\Exchange2007

Installs Mailbox and Hub Transport server roles and the management tools into the C:\Exchange2007 directory.

C:\Exchange2007\bin\Setup.com /m:install /r:C /SourceDir:d:\amd64

Adds the Client Access server role to the existing Exchange server using D:\AMD64 as the source directory for the Exchange bits.

Setup.com /mode:uninstall /role:Hub

Removes just the Hub Transport server role from the server.

Table 3   OrganizationName parameter

OrganizationName parameter Description

Explanation

The OrganizationName parameter specifies the name of the Exchange organization to create.

Use this parameter when preparing the Active Directory forest for the first installation of Exchange. If an Exchange organization already exists in the forest, this parameter is not required. If this parameter is specified when an Exchange organization already exists in the forest, Setup will stop and provide an error message saying an organization already exists.

Type

Required if creating a new Exchange organization.

Usage

/OrganizationName:<OrgName>

/on:<OrgName>

Values

<OrgName>   Any valid organization name.

Default value: First Organization (user interface mode only)

Remarks

The Exchange organization name can only contain the following characters:

  • A through Z
  • a through z
  • 0 through 9
  • Space (not leading or trailing)
  • Hyphen or dash
  • 64 characters maximum
  • Cannot be blank
noteNote:
Use quotation marks (") if the organization name contains a space.

Examples

Setup.com /mode:install /role:Mailbox,HubTransport /OrganizationName:MyOrg

Creates an Exchange organization called MyOrg in Active Directory and installs Mailbox and Hub Transport server roles and the management tools.

Setup.com /PrepareAD /on:"My Org"

Prepares Active Directory for Exchange including creating an Exchange organization called My Org.

Table 4   TargetDir parameter

TargetDir parameter Description

Explanation

The TargetDir parameter specifies the location to install the Exchange files.

Type

Optional

Usage

/TargetDir:<installation dir>

/t:<installation dir>

Values

<installation dir>   Any valid installation path.

Default value: %programfiles%\Microsoft\Exchange Server

Remarks

The installation directory must be on a fixed hard drive. It cannot be a ROM drive, RAM disk, network drive, removable disk, or unknown drive type.

Exchange cannot be installed to the root directory (C:\).

You cannot change the installation directory if Exchange is already installed on the server (for example, adding a new server role).

Examples

Setup.com /mode:install /role:Mailbox,HubTransport /TargetDir:C:\Exchange2007

Installs Mailbox and Hub Transport server roles and the management tools into the C:\Exchange2007 directory.

Table 5   SourceDir parameter

SourceDir parameter Description

Explanation

The SourceDir parameter specifies the path to the Exchange source media.

Use this parameter to tell Setup where to get the Exchange bits when adding a new server role to an existing Exchange server.

Type

Required if adding a new server role and Setup is not already running from the source directory.

Usage

/SourceDir:<PathToExchangeBinaries>

/s:<PathToExchangeBinaries>

Values

<PathToExchangeBinaries>   Any valid path to the Exchange source directory.

Default value: current directory where Setup is being run from

Remarks

If no SourceDir parameter is specified when adding a new server role, Setup will stop and provide an error message saying "the ExchangeServer.msi does not exist in the specified directory <current directory>."

Examples

C:\Exchange2007\bin\Setup.com /m:install /r:C /SourceDir:d:\Exchange2007

Adds the Client Access server role to the existing Exchange server using D:\Exchange2007 as the source directory for the Exchange bits.

Table 6   UpdatesDir parameter

UpdatesDir parameter Description

Explanation

The UpdatesDir parameter directs Setup where to get the updates to apply during installation.

The Updates directory is a special directory where Setup looks for any Exchange updates and automatically applies those updates before installing the server, so that when Setup completes, the server is fully updated.

Use this parameter to specify a directory that is different from the default Updates directory that is at the root of the Exchange source directory. By using this parameter, Setup will ignore the updates that are in the default Updates directory and only apply the ones in the specified directory.

Type

Optional

Usage

/UpdatesDir:<PathToCustomUpdatesDir>

/u:<PathToCustomUpdatesDir>

Values

<PathToCustomUpdatesDir>   Any valid path to the Exchange updates.

Default value: Updates directory in the root of the Exchange source

Remarks

Can only specify one directory to get updates from.

Examples

Setup.com /role:Mailbox,HubTransport /UpdatesDir:C:\Exchange2007\Patches

Updates the ExchangeServer.msi with updates from the specified directory, and then installs the Mailbox and Hub Transport server roles and the management tools.

Table 7   DomainController parameter

DomainController parameter Description

Explanation

The DomainController parameter directs Setup which domain controller to use to read from and write to Active Directory.

Setup has logic to choose a suitable domain controller for querying and making Active Directory changes. Use this parameter in conjunction with other Setup parameters to force Setup to use a specific domain controller. This parameter is useful if you have multiple domain controllers in the domain and want Setup to use a specific domain controller for whatever reason. If the domain controller specified is not suitable for Setup to use, Setup will stop and provide an error message about why the domain controller is not suitable.

Type

Optional

Usage

/DomainController:< NameOfDC >

/dc:<NameOfDC>

Values

<NameOfDC>   The NetBIOS name or fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller to use.

Default value: none

Remarks

Must specify a domain controller in the same Active Directory site as the server that is running Setup.

In some instances, Setup will require Active Directory actions be done on the schema master domain controller. These instances include running /PrepareSchema, /PrepareAD, or installing the first Exchange server without first preparing the forest. Basically, Setup will require the schema master domain controller anytime Setup needs to do initial global configuration. If a domain controller other than the schema master is specified at these times, Setup will stop and provide an error message saying it needs the schema master domain controller.

Examples

Setup.com /mode:install /role:Mailbox,HubTransport /DomainController:MyDC01

Uses the domain controller MyDC01 to query and make changes to Active Directory while installing the Mailbox and Hub Transport server roles and the management tools.

Setup.com /PrepareDomain /DC:MyDC01.contoso.corp.com

Uses the specified domain controller to query Active Directory and make any needed Active Directory changes.

Table 8   PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions parameter

PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions parameter Description

Explanation

The PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions parameter directs Setup to prepare the permissions in forests that have legacy Exchange servers in them for the introduction of Exchange 2007.

Use this parameter prior to importing the Exchange 2007 schema to prevent the Recipient Update Service of Exchange Server 2003 or Exchange 2000 Server from failing. After the Exchange 2007 schema is imported, the legacy Recipient Update Service will stop working correctly if these permissions are not set. To learn more about what /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions does, see Preparing Legacy Exchange Permissions.

Use /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions to prepare all the domains in the forest at once.

Use Setup /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions:<DomainFQDN> to remotely prepare the legacy Exchange permissions of a specific domain.

Type

Required

Usage

/PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions, /pl

/PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions,:<DomainFQDN>, /pl:<DomainFQDN>

Values

<DomainFQDN>   Fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain to prepare.

Default value: none

Remarks

The <DomainFQDN>provided must be in FQDN format. Otherwise, Setup will stop and provide an error message that the domain cannot be found.

/pl can be run from any server running Microsoft Windows Server® 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1) (64-bit or 32-bit) in the forest. It does not have to run from the root domain.

Domains for which you run Setup /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions must be reachable from the server where /pl is run, otherwise Setup will fail. Setup will prepare the permissions in all the domains it can reach, and then stop and provide an error message saying it cannot reach some domains. If there are domains that do not require the permissions, Setup will not attempt to reach them.

Examples

Setup.com /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions

Sets permissions for the legacy Exchange servers in every domain in the forest that requires it.

Setup.com /pl:ChildDomain.contoso.corp.com

Sets permissions for the legacy Exchange servers in just the child domain SigChild2dom.

Table 9   PrepareSchema parameter

PrepareSchema parameter Description

Explanation

The PrepareSchema parameter directs Setup to import the Exchange 2007 Active Directory schema.

Use this parameter to import the new Exchange schema and allow it to replicate throughout the forest before introducing Exchange 2007 servers into the organization.

Type

Required

Usage

/PrepareSchema, /ps

Values

None

Default value: not applicable

Remarks

This parameter must be run in the same Active Directory site and domain as the schema master domain controller.

/PrepareSchema can be run from a 64-bit or 32-bit server running Windows Server 2003 SP1.

The schema files are divided into 100 .ldf files for better progress.

/PrepareSchema will automatically run the /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions task prior to importing the new schema.

If using the /DC parameter in conjunction with /ps, the schema master domain controller must be specified.

Before you upgrade the first server in your Exchange organization from Exchange 2007 RTM to Exchange 2007 SP1, you must import the new schema for Exchange 2007 SP1.

Examples

Setup.com /PrepareSchema

Imports the Exchange 2007 Active Directory schema.

Table 10   PrepareAD parameter

PrepareAD parameter Description

Explanation

The PrepareAD parameter directs Setup to prepare the forest for the introduction of Exchange 2007.

Use this parameter to do the global configuration for Exchange 2007 and allow it to replicate throughout the forest prior to installing the first Exchange 2007 server. Global configuration includes running the PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions task (if needed), importing the schema (if needed), creating the Exchange universal security groups (USG), creating the Exchange configuration in Active Directory, and setting permissions. /PrepareAD will also run the PrepareDomain task for the local domain. The PrepareAD parameter combines all of the preparatory tasks, plus it performs the Active Directory configuration.

Type

Required

Usage

/PrepareAD

/p

Values

None

Default value: not applicable

Remarks

This parameter must be run in the same Active Directory site and domain as the schema master domain controller.

/PrepareAD can be run from a 64-bit or 32-bit server running Windows Server 2003 SP1.

/PrepareAD will automatically run the /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions and /PrepareSchema tasks if it detects those operations are needed.

Before you upgrade the first server in your Exchange organization from Exchange 2007 RTM to Exchange 2007 SP1, you must prepare Active Directory.

Examples

Setup.com /PrepareAD /OrganizationName:MyOrg

Prepares Active Directory for Exchange including creating an Exchange Organization called MyOrg.

Table 11   PrepareDomain parameter

PrepareDomain parameter Description

Explanation

The PrepareDomain parameter directs Setup to prepare the domain for the introduction of Exchange 2007.

Use this parameter prior to installing Exchange 2007 servers into a domain to set the domain-specific permissions and configuration.

Every domain that will have Exchange servers or Exchange recipients in it must be prepared.

Use Setup /PrepareDomain:<DomainFQDN> to remotely prepare a specific domain.

Type

Required

Usage

/PrepareDomain, /pd

/PrepareDomain:<DomainFQDN>, /pd:<DomainFQDN>

Values

<DomainFQDN>   The FQDN of the domain to prepare.

Default value: none

Remarks

The <DomainFQDN> provided must be in FQDN format, otherwise Setup will stop and provide an error message that the domain cannot be found.

For domains that are in an Active Directory site other than the root domain, /PrepareDomain might fail with the following message:

PrepareDomain for domain <YourDomain> has partially completed. Because of the Active Directory site configuration, you must wait at least 15 minutes for replication to occur, and run PrepareDomain for <YourDomain> again.

If you see this message, wait for or force Active Directory replication between this domain and the root domain, and then run /PrepareDomain again.

/pd can be run from any server running Windows Server 2003 SP1 (64-bit or 32-bit) in the forest. It does not have to run from the root domain.

/PrepareAD must have been run and allowed to replicate across the forest before /PrepareDomain can be run.

Before you upgrade the first server in a domain from Exchange 2007 RTM to Exchange 2007 SP1, you must prepare the domain.

Examples

Setup.com /PrepareDomain

Prepares the local domain for Exchange 2007.

Setup.com /pd:ChildDomain.contoso.corp.com

Prepares the specified domain for Exchange 2007.

Table 12   PrepareAllDomains parameter

PrepareAllDomains parameter Description

Explanation

The PrepareAllDomains parameter directs Setup to prepare all domains in the forest for the introduction of Exchange 2007.

Use this parameter prior to installing Exchange 2007 servers into a domain to set the domain-specific permissions and configuration across all domains in the forest.

Every domain that will have Exchange servers or Exchange recipients in it must be prepared.

Every domain must be reachable from the server running this parameter, otherwise Setup will fail.

Type

Optional

Usage

/PrepareAllDomains, /pad

Values

None

Default value: not applicable

Remarks

For domains that are in an Active Directory site other than the root domain, /PrepareAllDomains might fail. If you see the following message, wait for or force Active Directory replication between this domain and the root domain, and then run /PrepareAllDomains again:

PrepareDomain for domain <YourDomain> has partially completed. Because of the Active Directory site configuration, you must wait at least 15 minutes for replication to occur, and run PrepareDomain for <YourDomain> again.

/pad can be run from any server running Windows Server 2003 SP1(64-bit or 32-bit) in the forest. It does not have to run from the root domain.

/PrepareAD must have been run and allowed to replicate across the forest before /PrepareAllDomains can be run.

Before you upgrade the first server in a domain from Exchange 2007 RTM to Exchange 2007 SP1, you must prepare the domain.

Examples

Setup.com /PrepareAllDomains

Prepares all domains in the forest for Exchange 2007.

Table 13   AnswerFile parameter

AnswerFile parameter Description

Explanation

The AnswerFile parameter directs Setup where to find the AnswerFile.

The AnswerFile is a text file that contains advanced (and some non-advanced) parameters and their values. This file can then be put on a share and used to install multiple servers using the same advanced parameters. Use this parameter in conjunction with installing server roles.

Type

Advanced

Usage

/AnswerFile:<PathToAnswerFile>

/af:< PathToAnswerFile>

Values

<PathToAnswerFile>   Any valid path to the AnswerFile.

Default value: none

Remarks

The following is the list of parameters that the AnswerFile may contain:

/cmsname

/cmsipaddress

/cmsipv4addresses

/cmsipv4networks

/cmsipv6networks

/cmssharedstorage

/cmsdatapath

/newcms

/removecms

/upgradecms

/recovercms

/enablelegacyoutlook

/legacyroutingserver

/adamldapport

/adamsslport

/serveradmin

/foreignforestfqdn

/enableerrorreporting

/noselfsignedcertificates

/organizationname

/donotstarttransport

/updatesdir

Drop the slash mark (/) when passing parameters in the AnswerFile. For example use AdamSslPort instead of /AdamSslPort.

For parameters that do not get passed a value, specify the parameter name.

Setup will fail if there are parameters in the AnswerFile that you cannot use in an answer file or that are not relevant to the current installation.

Examples

The following is a sample AnswerFile saved as C:\ExConfig.txt.

NewCms

CmsName=ExCluMsg02

CmsIpAddress=255.255.255.0

EnableErrorReporting

UpdatesDir=C:\Patches_E12

Setup.com /mode:install /role:Mailbox /AnswerFile:c:\ExConfig.txt

Installs a clustered mailbox server and creates the clustered mailbox server using the settings in Answerfile.txt.

Table 14   DoNotStartTransport parameter

DoNotStartTransport parameter Description

Explanation

The DoNotStartTransport parameter directs Setup to not start the Microsoft Exchange Transport service after Setup is complete.

By default, the Microsoft Exchange Transport service is automatically started by Setup after the Hub Transport or Edge Transport server role is installed.

Use the /DoNotStartTransport parameter to specify that the Microsoft Exchange Transport service will not start when Setup completes. We recommend using this parameter in conjunction with the /RecoverServer parameter when recovering a Hub Transport or Edge Transports server because the queue database from the failed server might need to be placed in the correct location before transport is started.

If additional configuration is needed before the Edge Transport or Hub Transport server accepts e-mail messages, for example, configuring anti-spam agents, use this parameter.

Type

Advanced Optional

Usage

/DoNotStartTransport

Values

None

Default value: not applicable

Remarks

The DoNotStartTransport parameter only applies to the Edge Transport and Hub Transport server roles.

Examples

Setup.com /mode:install /role:EdgeTranport /DoNotStartTransport

Installs the Edge Transport server role and the management tools and does not start the Microsoft Exchange Transport service.

Setup.com /r:Hub /DoNotStartTransport

Installs the Hub Transport server role and the management tools, and does not start the Microsoft Exchange Transport service.

Table 15   EnableLegacyOutlook parameter

EnableLegacyOutlook parameter Description

Explanation

The EnableLegacyOutlook parameter specifies that older versions of Microsoft Outlook® clients can connect to the Exchange 2007 server.

Use this parameter to specify that you have client computers that are running Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 or earlier. Using this parameter will cause Exchange 2007 Setup to create a public folder database on the Mailbox server. If you do not use this parameter, Exchange 2007 will not create a public folder database on the Mailbox server. Older versions of Outlook require public folders to exist in the organization. Otherwise, the clients will not connect to the Exchange server.

This parameter only works in conjunction with installing the first Mailbox server role in an organization.

When installing the first Exchange 2007 Mailbox server into an existing Exchange 2000 Server or Exchange Server 2003 organization, Setup automatically creates public folders so the /EnableLegacyOutlook parameter does not need to be specified. This is true only for the first Exchange 2007 Mailbox server. Subsequent Exchange 2007 Mailbox servers do not have public folders by default.

Type

Advanced Optional

Usage

/EnableLegacyOutlook

Values

None

Default value: not applicable

Remarks

The EnableLegacyOutlook parameter can only be used when installing the first Mailbox server role.

The EnableLegacyOutlook parameter does not need to be specified when installing the first Mailbox server into an existing Exchange Server 2003 or Exchange 2000 Server organization because Setup automatically detects the legacy organization and creates a public folder database.

Examples

Setup.com /mode:install /role:Mailbox,HubTransport /TargetDir:C:\Exchange2007 /EnableLegacyOutlook

Installs Mailbox and Hub Transport server roles and the management tools into the C:\Exchange2007 directory and creates a public folder database on the Mailbox server.

Table 16   LegacyRoutingServer parameter

LegacyRoutingServer parameter Description

Explanation

The LegacyRoutingServer parameter directs Setup which legacy Exchange server to create a routing group connector with.

Use this parameter to specify the Exchange Server 2003 or Exchange 2000 Server bridgehead server that will host the routing group connector for coexistence between Exchange 2007 and either Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2000. Setup automatically creates and configures a routing group connector on the local server and a routing group connector on the specified server.

This parameter can only be used in conjunction with installing the first Exchange 2007 Hub Transport server in an organization.

Type

Advanced Optional

Usage

/LegacyRoutingServer:<NameOfLegacyServer>

Values

<NameOfLegacyServer>   NetBIOS name or FQDN of the server.

Default value: none

Remarks

The server specified should be the Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2000 server that will act as the bridgehead server to Exchange 2007.

Can only be used when installing the first Hub Transport server role into an organization that contains legacy Exchange servers.

After completion, two routing group connectors are created and configured: one on each server that connects with the other.

Examples

Setup.com /mode:install /role:Mailbox,HubTransport /TargetDir:C:\Exchange2007 /LegacyRoutingServer:E2K3Svr2.contoso.corp.com

Installs Mailbox and Hub Transport server roles and the management tools into the C:\Exchange2007 directory. Also, it creates a routing group connector from the Hub Transport server to the specified legacy server and a routing group connector from the legacy server to the Hub Transport server.

Table 17   EnableErrorReporting parameter

EnableErrorReporting parameter Description

Explanation

The EnableErrorReporting parameter directs Setup to enable error reporting for the server.

Use this parameter to enable the Exchange server to automatically report critical errors to Microsoft. Microsoft uses this information to diagnose problems and improve its products.

By default, error reporting is not enabled.

This parameter must be used in conjunction with installing a server role.

Type

Advanced Optional

Usage

/EnableErrorReporting

Values

None

Default value: not applicable

Remarks

Sets the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Exchange DisableErrorReporting = 1 to enable error reporting through Microsoft Windows Error Reporting.

This will allow Windows Error Reporting to send a mini-dump file of the in-process stack, some registry settings, and possibly one or two log files to Microsoft. To view the privacy statement and more detailed information about error reporting, see the Error Reporting page in the Setup Wizard.

Examples

Setup.com /mode:install /role:Mailbox,HubTransport /EnableErrorReporting

Installs Mailbox and Hub Transport server roles and the management tools into the C:\Exchange2007 directory and enables error reporting.

Table 18   NoSelfSignedCertificates parameter

NoSelfSignedCertificates parameter Description

Explanation

The NoSelfSignedCertificates parameter directs Setup not to create a self-signed certificate if no valid certificates are found.

Use this parameter if you do not want Setup to create self-signed certificates in the case where no other valid certificate is found for Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) sessions.

This parameter can only be run in conjunction with installing the Client Access or Unified Messaging server roles.

Type

Advanced Optional

Usage

/NoSelfSignedCertificates

Values

None

Default value: not applicable

Remarks

Without an SSL certificate, communication between clients and Client Access servers or Unified Messaging servers will be unencrypted.

Examples

Setup.com /mode:install /role:ClientAccess /NoSelfSignedCertificates

Installs the Client Access server role and the management tools and does not create a self-signed certificate.

Table 19   AdamLdapPort parameter

AdamLdapPort parameter Description

Explanation

The AdamLdapPort parameter directs Setup what Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) port to set for the Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) instance.

There are two ports used by the ADAM instance when the Edge Transport server role is installed, the LDAP port and the SSL port. You can set one or both during Setup. Use this parameter during installation to set the port ADAM uses for LDAP.

This parameter can only be used in conjunction with installing the Edge Transport server role.

Type

Advanced Optional

Usage

/AdamLdapPort:<PortNumber>

Values

<PortNumber>   Any valid unused port number.

Default value: 50389

Remarks

By default, the LDAP port for ADAM is 50389.

The port information is stored in the registry at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Exchange\v8.0\EdgeTransportRole\AdamSettings\MsExchangeAdam\LdapPort REG_DWORD

Can be used with /AdamSslPort to set the SSL port at the same time.

Examples

Setup.com /mode:install /role:EdgeTransport /AdamLdapPort:50390

Installs the Edge Transport server role and management tools and configures the ADAM instance to use port 50390 for LDAP.

Setup.com /r:Et /AdamLdapPort:50390 /AdamSslPort:50640

Installs the Edge Transport server role and management tools and configures the ADAM instance to use port 50390 for LDAP and port 50640 for SSL.

Table 20   AdamSslPort parameter

AdamSslPort parameter Description

Explanation

The AdamSslPort parameter directs Setup what SSL port to set for the ADAM instance.

There are two ports used by the ADAM instance when the Edge Transport server role is installed, the LDAP port and the SSL port. You can set one or both during Setup. Use this parameter during installation to set the port ADAM uses for SSL.

This parameter can only be used in conjunction with installing the Edge Transport server role.

Type

Advanced Optional

Usage

/AdamLdapPort:<PortNumber>

Values

<PortNumber>   Any valid unused port number.

Default value: 50636

Remarks

By default, the SSL port for ADAM is 50636.

The port information is stored in the registry at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Exchange\v8.0\EdgeTransportRole\AdamSettings\MsExchangeAdam\SslPort REG_DWORD

Can be used with /AdamLdapPort to set the LDAP port at the same time.

Examples

Setup.com /mode:install /role:EdgeTransport /AdamSslPort:50640

Installs the Edge Transport server role and management tools and configures the ADAM instance to use port 50640 for SSL.

Setup.com /r:Et /AdamLdapPort:50390 /AdamSslPort:50640

Installs the Edge Transport server role and management tools and configures the ADAM instance to use port 50390 for LDAP and port 50640 for SSL.

Table 21   NewProvisionedServer parameter

NewProvisionedServer parameter Description

Explanation

The NewProvisionedServer parameter directs Setup to create a placeholder Exchange Server object in Active Directory.

Use this parameter to delegate the installation of Exchange servers to Exchange Server Administrators instead of having to use Exchange Organization Administrators to install Exchange servers. By creating the Exchange Server object in Active Directory in advance, an Exchange Organization Administrator can delegate an Exchange Server Administrator for that server. The Exchange Server Administrator can then install Exchange onto the server.

Use Setup /NewProvisionedServer:<ServerName> to provision a remote server. An Exchange Server object in Active Directory with that server name will be created.

If no server name is passed, Setup will provision an Exchange Server object in Active Directory for the local server.

Use this parameter in conjunction with the /ServerAdmin:<AccountName> parameter to provision a server and specify an Exchange Server Administrator account at the same time.

Type

Advanced

Usage

/NewProvisionedServer, /nprs   Provisions an Exchange Server object for the local server.

/NewProvisionedServer:<ServerName, /nprs:<ServerName>   Provisions an Exchange Server object for the specified server.

Values

None   Provisions an Exchange Server object for the local server.

<ServerName>   NetBIOS name or FQDN of the server to provision.

Default value: none

Remarks

The Exchange organization must already exist and at least one Exchange server must already be installed prior to creating new provisioned servers.

Only Exchange Organization Administrators can run /NewProvisionedServer.

Running Setup /NewProvisionedServer will not leave any Exchange files or configuration on the local server.

Provisioned servers will show up as provisioned servers in the Exchange Management Console and returned by the Get-ExchangeServer cmdlet.

The computer account specified in <ServerName> must exist in Active Directory prior to running /NewProvisionedServer. The physical server does not need to exist, just its account in Active Directory.

When using a delegated Exchange Server Administrator, the first instance of any particular server role must be installed using an Exchange Organization Administrator. Subsequent installs of the same server role into the organization can be done using a delegated Exchange Server Administrator.

Examples

Setup.com /NewProvisionedServer

Creates an Exchange Server object for the local computer in Active Directory.

Setup.com /nprs:ExMsg03

Creates an Exchange Server object, ExMsg03, in Active Directory.

Setup.com /NewProvisionedServer:ExMsg03 /ServerAdmin:contoso\Lori

Creates an Exchange Server object, ExMsg03, in Active Directory and makes contoso\Lori an Exchange Server Administrator for that server.

Table 22   RemoveProvisionedServer parameter

RemoveProvisionedServer parameter Description

Explanation

The RemoveProvisionedServer parameter tells Setup to remove the placeholder Exchange Server object from Active Directory.

Use this parameter to remove unwanted provisioned servers from Active Directory.

Use Setup /RemoveProvisionedServer:<ServerName> to remotely remove the specified provisioned server. If no server name is passed, Setup attempts to remove a provisioned server with the same name as the local computer.

Type

Advanced

Usage

/RemoveProvisionedServer, /rprs   Removes the provisioned Exchange Server object for the local server.

/RemoveProvisionedServer:<ServerName>, /rprs:<ServerName>   Removes the provisioned Exchange Server object for the specified server.

Values

<ServerName>   NetBIOS name or FQDN of the provisioned server to remove.

Default value: none

Remarks

Only Exchange Organization Administrators can run /RemoveProvisionedServer.

Only provisioned servers can be removed using /RemoveProvisionedServer. If an Exchange server with configured server roles is specified in Setup /RemoveProvisionedServer:<ServerName>, Setup will complete successfully but will not do anything, and the Exchange Server object will not be removed.

Examples

Setup.com /RemoveProvisionedServer

Removes the provisioned Exchange Server object for the local computer from Active Directory.

Setup.com /nprs:ExMsg03

Removes the provisioned Exchange Server object, ExMsg03, from Active Directory.

Table 23   ServerAdmin parameter

ServerAdmin parameter Description

Explanation

The ServerAdmin parameter directs Setup which account to make an Exchange Server Administrator when running /NewProvisionedServer.

Use this parameter when provisioning a new server to delegate an Exchange Server Administrator at the same time.

This parameter can only be used in conjunction with /NewProvisionedServer.

Type

Advanced Optional

Usage

/ServerAdmin:<AccountName>

/sa:<AccountName>

Values

<AccountName>   Use the format: Domain\AccountName.

Default value: none

Remarks

The ServerAdmin parameter can be either a user or group account name.

The account specified shows up as an Exchange Server Administrator for the server in the Exchange Management Console and returned by the Get-ExchangeAdministrator cmdlet.

The ServerAdmin parameter cannot be used to delegate a new Exchange Server Administrator for an existing configured Exchange server.

Examples

Setup.com /NewProvisionedServer:ExMsg03 /ServerAdmin:contoso\ExMsg03Admins

Creates an Exchange Server object, ExMsg03, in Active Directory and grants the group contoso\ExMsg03Admins Exchange Server Administrator rights for that server.

Table 24   ForeignForestFQDN parameter

ForeignForestFQDN parameter Description

Explanation

The ForeignForestFQDN parameter directs Setup to create the three administrative Exchange universal security groups (USG) in the specified forest.

Use this parameter as one of the steps to set up cross-forest Exchange administration between two or more Active Directory forests. This will allow accounts from one forest to administer an Exchange organization in another forest using their own account credentials. For more information about how to set up cross-forest administration, see How to Configure Cross-Forest Administration.

This parameter must be used in conjunction with the /PrepareAD parameter and must be run from a server in the forest that contains the Exchange 2007 organization.

Type

Required if setting up cross-forest administration.

Usage

/ForeignForestFQDN:<FQDNofForeignForest1>,<FQDNofForeignForest2>, and so on

Values

<FQDNofForeignForest>   The fully qualified domain name of the forests that host the accounts that are going to get permissions to the Exchange organization.

Default value: none

Remarks

There are many steps to do before and after running /ForeignForestFQDN. Be sure to read Exchange Help about setting up cross-forest Exchange administration prior to running this parameter.

This parameter creates the Microsoft Exchange Security Groups organizational unit (OU) in the root domain of the specified forest and creates the Exchange Organization Administrators, Exchange Public Folder Administrators (in Exchange 2007 SP1 only), Exchange Recipient Administrators, and Exchange View-Only Administrators USGs in the new OU. Then it nests these USGs, gives the Exchange Organization Administrators group Full Control permission on each of the new groups and the new organizational unit, and configures access control entries (ACE) so that the new groups in the specified forest have rights to the Exchange configuration in the forest in which you run the command. Setup will not create the Exchange servers or the ExchangeLegacyInterop USGs in the specified forest.

If the Microsoft Exchange Security Groups OU and the four Exchange administrative USGs already exist in the specified forest, Setup verifies that they exist and have the correct permissions set, and then configures ACEs so that these existing groups in the specified forest have rights to the Exchange configuration in the forest in which you run the command.

Note that even with cross-forest administration set up, it is not supported to run Setup in install, uninstall, or RecoverServer mode using an Exchange administrator account from a foreign forest.

Examples

Setup.com /PrepareAD /ForeignForestFQDN:Contoso.corp.com

Creates the Microsoft Exchange Security Groups OU and the three Exchange administration USGs in the root domain of the forest where Contoso.corp.com domain resides, and will configure ACEs so that the new groups in the Contoso.corp.com forest have rights to the Exchange configuration in the forest in which you run the command.

Table 25   NewCms parameter

NewCms parameter Description

Explanation

The NewCms parameter creates the new clustered mailbox server.

Use this parameter on a cluster node to create the new mailbox server. This is the parameter that creates the Exchange Server object for the clustered mailbox server in Active Directory. The node on which you run this command will be the active cluster node. You can run this command in conjunction with the /mode:install parameter to install the Mailbox server role on a new server. You can also run this command without the /mode:install parameter on an existing passive Mailbox server to make it the active node.

The clustered mailbox server name and IP address must also be supplied when creating the new clustered mailbox server.

Type

Required for creating the clustered mailbox server.

Usage

/NewCms

Values

None

Default value: not applicable

Remarks

The /CmsName:<UniqueName> and /CmsIpAddress:<UniqueIPAddress> parameters must also be supplied when running /NewCms.

Table 31   RemoveCms parameter

RemoveCms parameter Description

Explanation

The RemoveCms parameter directs Setup to remove the clustered mailbox server.

Use this parameter to remove the clustered mailbox server from the hosting node. It will remove the Exchange server object that represents the clustered mailbox server from Active Directory. It will not uninstall the Mailbox server role from the node, unless it is run in conjunction with the /mode:uninstall parameter. If /RemoveCms is run in conjunction with /mode:uninstall, it will remove the clustered mailbox server, and then completely uninstall Exchange from the server.

Removing the active clustered mailbox server from the hosting node will turn the node into a passive node.

You cannot remove a clustered mailbox server remotely. This parameter must be run on the node that is hosting the clustered mailbox server.

Type

The RemoveCms parameter is required for removing the clustered mailbox server.

Usage

/RemoveCms

Values

None

Default value: not applicable

Remarks

The /RemoveCms parameter requires the /CmsName parameter even though it has to be run on the node that is hosting the clustered mailbox server. This is because the node could be hosting more than one clustered mailbox server (one active and one or more inactive clustered mailbox servers).

Examples

C:\Exchange2007\bin\Setup.com /RemoveCms /cn:Clu03

Removes the clustered mailbox server Clu03 from Active Directory.

The RecoverCms parameter is required for recovering the clustered mailbox server.

Usage

/RecoverCms

Values

None

Default value: not applicable

Remarks

The /CmsName:<UniqueName> and /CmsIpAddress:<UniqueIPAddress> parameters must also be supplied when running the /RecoverCms parameter.

The IP address supplied does not need to be the same IP address as before the server was recovered.

Examples

C:\Exchange2007\bin\Setup.com /RecoverCms /CmsName:Clu03 /cip:255.255.255.0

Recovers the already configured clustered mailbox server named Clu03 onto the local server so that it is hosting the clustered mailbox server.

Table 33   CmsSharedStorage parameter

CmsSharedStorage parameter Description

Explanation

Use the CmsSharedStorage parameter when creating a new clustered mailbox server to specify that the clustered mailbox server uses shared storage. By default, the clustered mailbox server will not use shared storage. Shared storage means the storage group and database data are stored as a single copy on a single shared disk. The shared disk must have a physical disk resource in the Windows Server 2003 cluster.

Type

Optional. The CmsSharedStorage parameter is required to create a single copy cluster.

Usage

/CmsSharedStorage, /css

Values

None

Default value: not applicable

Remarks

The /CmsDataPath parameter must be specified when using the /CmsSharedStorage parameter.

Because /CmsSharedStorage can only be used when creating a new clustered mailbox server, /NewCms, /CmsName:<UniqueName>, /CmsIpAddress:<UniqueIPAddress>, and /CmsDataPath must all be supplied.

Examples

After installation, the UM languages can be managed through the Exchange Management Console or Exchange Management Shell on the UM server.

Type

The AddUmLanguagePack parameter is required if installing new UM language packs

Usage

/AddUmLanguagePack:<UmLanguagePackName1>,<UmLanguagePackName2>, and so on

Values

<UmLanguagePackName>   Name of the language pack (.msi) without the preceding text umlang-. For example, the German language pack is named umlang-de-DE.msi, but to install it, specify de-DE instead of umlang-de-DE.

Default value: none

Remarks

The Unified Messaging server role must be installed on the local server to add a UM language pack.

By default, the en-US language pack is installed with the UM server role. The language pack that matches the language of the Exchange server is also installed.

You cannot use the .msi files from the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 installation files to install UM language packs. You must use Setup to install additional UM language packs.

You may need to supply the /SourceDir parameter to specify the location for the UM language pack .msi file. Setup will look for UM language packs in the default location: %ExchangeSourceDir%\ServerRoles\UnifiedMessaging.

The following is the list of available language packs:

US English - en-US

German - de-DE

French - fr-FR

Japanese - ja-JP

UK English - en-GB

Korean - ko-KR
