Installation Notes:

If you haven’t installed Exchange Server yet, you can use the info at Quicker Exchange installs complete with service packs and rollups to save you some time.

Microsoft Update can’t detect rollups for Exchange 2010 servers that are members of a Database Availability Group (DAG). See the post Installing Exchange 2010 Rollups on DAG Servers for info, and a script, for installing update rollups.

Update Rollups should be applied to Internet facing Client Access Servers before being installed on non-Internet facing Client Access Servers.

If you’re installing the update rollup on Exchange servers that don’t have Internet access, see “Installing Exchange 2007 & 2010 rollups on servers that don’t have Internet access” for some additional steps.

PowerShell Script to Set All AutoDiscover Related Virtual Directories to Use a Single Domain Name

October 1, 2008 Leave a comment

I’ve updated the Set-AllVDirs.ps1 script that streamlines the process of setting the virtual directory paths for various web services including Offline Address Book, AutoDiscover, Unified Messaging, and Exchange Web Services. If you’re using a single name certificate in place of a Subject Alternative Name certificate, this script walks you through the process of changing each of the URLs.

See the script at The Exchange 2007 Wiki page here.
