Exchange 2016 Install – Step by Step

This blog post is specially for those who are planning to install Exchange 2016 and wanted to get an idea. There is nothing special installing the Exchange Server 2016 but of course there a a lot of planning involved if you are doing a migration project from Exchange to Exchange Migration or Exchange to O365 or a Hybrid setup.  This install is a step by step (screen shots) for Exchange 2016 installation.  2

The server OS is Windows Server 2012 R2 running on my Hyper-V 2012 R2 Host.
To install the pre-requisites and automate the installation I’ve used Michel de Rooij’s script. I recommend using that script , it save a lot of time.

Below Error is the DotNet Framework Error. As soon as I manually installed the DotNet Framework 4.5.2 I was able to proceed the installation.
