Installing Prerequisites for Exchange 2016 on Windows Server 2016 TP3
Now that Exchange 2016 is GA (hooray!) I have been trying to get it installed in my lab to mess around a bit. The documentation on Microsoft goes through the prerequisites that need to be installed on Windows Server 2012 R2. I wanted to get Exchange 2016 installed on Windows Server 2016 TP3, but the PowerShell command doesn’t run correctly for WS2016. After the break is the alternate command.
Here’s what you’ll need to run instead:
Install-WindowsFeature NET-HTTP-Activation, `
Windows-Identity-Foundation -Source D:sourcessxs
You’ll need to have the WS2016 ISO mounted on the server, in my case the D drive, as a source for some of the .Net files. Then you can proceed through the standard installation process for Exchange 2016.
