Exchange 2019: Installation

Preparation of the environment


Exchange requires a change to the Active Directory schema that will be performed during the Exchange installation.

Before installing the mail service, you must install the following software:

  • .NET Framework 4.7.2 or newer: already present on Windows Server 2019.
  • Visual C++ 2012
  • Visual C++ 2013
  • API Unified Communication Managed 4.0 : available on ISO Exchange 2019.

You must also install the Windows server features. Open a PowerShell command prompt and run the following command:

Install-WindowsFeature Server-Media-Foundation, NET-Framework-45-Features, RPC-over-HTTP-proxy, RSAT-Clustering, RSAT-Clustering-CmdInterface, RSAT-Clustering-Mgmt, RSAT-Clustering-PowerShell, WAS-Process-Model, Web-Asp-Net45, Web-Basic-Auth, Web-Client-Auth, Web-Digest-Auth, Web-Dir-Browsing, Web-Dyn-Compression, Web-Http-Errors, Web-Http-Logging, Web-Http-Redirect, Web-Http-Tracing, Web-ISAPI-Ext, Web-ISAPI-Filter, Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console, Web-Metabase, Web-Mgmt-Console, Web-Mgmt-Service, Web-Net-Ext45, Web-Request-Monitor, Web-Server, Web-Stat-Compression, Web-Static-Content, Web-Windows-Auth, Web-WMI, Windows-Identity-Foundation, RSAT-ADDS
