Exchange 2013 Setup - Introduction
Topic Last Modified: 2012-09-11
Use the Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 Setup wizard to install Exchange 2013 for the first time on a computer or to add server roles on a computer that has Exchange 2013 installed. If you want to remove Exchange, you must use Control Panel\Programs and Features.
Before you complete this wizard, be aware of the following:
You must satisfy the Exchange 2013 System Requirements and Exchange 2013 Prerequisites.
You should read the Release Notes for Exchange 2013.
Each organization requires at a minimum one Client Access server and one Mailbox server in the Active Directory forest. Additionally, each Active Directory site that contains a Mailbox server must also contain at least one Client Access server. If you're separating your server roles, we recommend installing the Mailbox server role first.
You can install the Mailbox server role and Client Access server role on the same or separate computers.
You must ensure the account you use is delegated membership in the Schema Admins group if you haven't previously prepared the Active Directory schema. If you're installing the first Exchange 2013 server in the organization, the account you use must have membership in the Enterprise Admins group. If you've already prepared the schema and aren't installing the first Exchange 2013 server in the organization, the account you use must be a member of the Exchange 2013 Organization Management role group.
After Setup has finished installing Exchange, you need to finalize your deployment. For more information, see Exchange 2013 Post-Installation Tasks.
