Hello Exchange 2013 RTM admins!

If you are excited as I am you are rushing to your lab to deploy the RTM version, right? So before going there you may be wondering about the pre-requisites to be installed because on the Preview we had tons of them, right?

I hope I can make it easier for you, in a standard deployment of a server with both roles: Client Access and Mailbox these are the pre-requisites:

  • Donwload Microsoft filter pack 2.0
  • Microsoft Unified Communications Managed API 4.0, Core Runtime 64-bit
  • Donwload Microsoft filter pack 2.0 – SP1

The installation process is pretty straight forward and you just need to hit Next, Accept aggreements and Finish and you will be all set to start exploring the new Exchange Server 2013 RTM Smile
