Prepare Active Directory to accommodate Exchange environment
On the domain controller DC2012, insert the Exchange Server 2013 DVD. Note the drive letter. In my case, it is D: drive.
Launch CMD as Administrator, change to drive D: then enter two commands:
- setup /PrepareSchema /IacceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms
This will extend the Active Directory Schema to allow Exchange to integrate into the AD environment.
- setup /PrepareAD /OrganizationName:DALARIS /IacceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms
Restart the server DC2012 using the command:
shutdown –r –t 0
