Join Scott M Burrell for an in-depth discussion in this video What You Should Already Know, part of Exchange 2016: Infrastructure, Recipients, and Security.
- [Instructor] This course is part of a series of courses on Exchange Server 2016. While none of these courses have any prerequisites, they all work together to present the various components of Exchange. Together they provide a solid foundation to prepare not only for certification but for designing and managing an Exchange organization. There are a few things that you should know to get the most out of this course. First, Exchange works very closely with Active Directory.
Some experience with user and group management in Active Directory will help, as will some knowledge of trusts and of sites and services. Second, the Exchange Management Shell is a powerful and convenient way to accomplish many administrative tasks. Some familiarity with PowerShell environments would be helpful but not necessary. I will discuss all of the commandlets used in this course. And third, some of the features used in this course require additional roles to be present in an Active Directory domain.
Roles like Active Directory Certificate Services and Active Directory Rights Management Services were installed before the course begins. To follow along with these demonstrations, you'll need to have these roles installed and configured. If you need help with that, you can find it in our course library. The installation of these roles is covered in courses on Windows Server Identity and Access, and the server certificate needs for an Exchange Server are presented in a course on Exchange Client Access Services.
And finally, the servers and work station used in this course are all created on a single Hyper-V host. It will take a bit oF RAM and processing power to put them all on one machine, but it can be done. I start with the domain controller running DNS and Certificate Services and add in two member servers that will be installed as Exchange Servers and a workstation in the same domain. Later we add a domain controller for a trusted domain, a member server that will be provisioned to install Exchange later, and a rights management server.
If that seems like a lot for one host, maybe it is, but I never have more than five virtual machines running at any one time. I encourage you to build your own virtual lab to follow along and to design your own custom environments. I'm anxious to get started. Let's jump right in.
