This topic presents two sets of instructions about installation and configuration that are required to support Exchange Server 2007 Management Pack functionality.

Information for planning and for MOM 2005 installation is at MOM 2005 Planning and Deployment Resources.

The Exchange 2007 Management Pack reports are important in order to make full use of the Exchange 2007 Management Pack. The MOM and SQL Server environments must be installed correctly and configured for Exchange 2007 reporting to be able to be run.

When you install MOM 2005 reporting with SQL Server 2005, follow these steps:

  1. Clear the check box for automatically determining the reporting virtual directories.

  2. Specify the directories in the text boxes provided when installing by using the manual installation method. By default, these are Report Server and Reports.

  3. Configure the SQL Server 2005 agent service to run automatically. This must be set to pass a MOM 2005 installation prerequisite.

For information about how to install SQL Server 2005, see How to: Install SQL Server 2005 (Setup).

For information about how to install SQL Server 2000, see the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 303747, HOW TO: Install SQL Server 2000 - Basic Local Installation.

For information about MOM 2005 SP1 deployment and installation, and for SQL Server installation verification with MOM, see the MOM 2005 Deployment Guide.

For information from the Microsoft Knowledge Base about MOM 2005 SP1 updates for SQL Server 2005, see the following articles:

Exchange 2007 can be installed on the same server as an SQL Server 2000 Report Server or a MOM 2005 Report Server with the following exceptions. The workarounds are required only if you are installing SQL Report Server 2000 and Exchange 2007 with the Client Access server role on the same server.

Site Replication Service (SRS) requires the .NET Framework v1.1 and ASP.NET v1.1 to be installed.  However, if the Client Access server role is installed it will register v2.0 with all the virtual directories in IIS. For SRS to install and function, you must manually register the SRS virtual directories with v1.1.

There are two workarounds depending on whether you install the Client Access server role for Exchange 2007 before you install SRS or you install SRS before you install Exchange 2007. Scenario two is the one that is recommended.

  1. After you install Exchange 2007 (with the Client Access server role), run \WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe -r to make sure that IIS is prepared to use ASP.NET v1.1.

  2. Install SRS and the MOM Reporting Server.

  3. For each Client Access Server virtual directory, run \WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.xxxxx\aspnet_regiis.exe -s <metabase path of virtual directory>

The Client Access Server virtual directories are as follows:

  • /W3SVC/1/ROOT/Autodiscover


  • /W3SVC/1/ROOT/owa

  • /W3SVC/1/ROOT/Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync

  • /W3SVC/1/ROOT/Exchange

  • /W3SVC/1/ROOT/ExchWeb

  • /W3SVC/1/ROOT/Public

If you have additional virtual directories, they have to be changed using a similar process. Use Metabase Explorer to find the metabase path of the new virtual directories. Metabase Explorer is included with the Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 Resource Kit.

Note   You do not have to use Metabase Explorer in scenario two. This is why it is the recommended procedure.

  1. Before you install SRS 2000, run \WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe -r to make sure that IIS is prepared to use ASP.NET v1.1.

  2. Install SRS and the MOM Report Server.

  3. Install Exchange 2007 with the Client Access server role which will register ASP.NET v2.0 in IIS.

  4. For the two SRS virtual directories (\Reports and \ReportServer), run: \WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe -s <metabase path of virtual directory>.


run \WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe -s /W3SVC/1/ROOT/Reports

run \WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe -s /W3SVC/1/ROOT/ReportServer
