How to install Exchange 2016 (CU3 and beyond) on Windows Server 2016

Exchange2016-and-Windows-Server-2016

In this blog post we’ll look at how to install the latest version of Exchange 2016 on Windows Server 2016. At the time of writing the current version of Exchange 2016 is CU3.

When Exchange 2016 was first released it wasn’t possible to install it on the Windows Server 2016 Technical Previews due to some missing features in the OS that it relies upon, but now Windows Server 2016 has been released to manufacturing, installation of Exchange 2016 on WIndows Server 2016 is supported.

The demo environment I am using includes a Windows Server 2016 domain controller that is running at the Windows 2016 forest and domain level, and a Windows Server 2016 member server.

In the demo environment no previous versions of Exchange have been installed so as part of the installation the Exchange 2016 we will upgrade the AD Schema.

Finally before we start, always test in a demo environment before deploying in Production!

I hope this walk through helps.
