Exchange 2013 Server installation – Part 2

Posted by Alan McBurney on November 5, 2012

In the first part of this multi part blog post I covered the installation of the Client Access Server

This time around we will cover the installation of the Mailbox role.

Lets get started by covering off the pre-requisites the Mailbox Role

One final reboot is required before we can install the Exchange 2013 Mailbox role.

Once the server is back up we can go ahead and launch the Exchange 2013 setup routine.

The following screenshots will guide you though the install

Once the installation is complete we can check that the Exchange Admin Center comes up as expected.

Open your web browser and enter the IP\DNS name of your CAS server. For me its


As I installed a trusted certificate yet I will get a security error once I connect. This can be ignored as its expected behaviour


Once you have accepted the warning you will be presented with the Exchange Admin Center


Repeat the installation process for MBX02 and once complete that concludes part 2 of this blog post.

Next time out I will configure up the Client Access Server Client URLs and setup the Kemp Virtual Load Master
