EXCHANGE SERVER 2013, WINDOWS 2012 R2 NOT SUPPORTED? RRS feed

  • Question

  • The Exchange management tools are supported on servers running Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 or later, and also on Windows 8 and Windows 7 client computers.

    For more information, visit: http://technet.microsoft.com/library(EXCHG.150)/ms.exch.setupreadiness.ValidOSVersionForAdminTools.aspx

    That is the Error message I am receiving on installation. On multiple servers.

    this is pulled from the Microsoft Exchange System Requirements page 4/19/2014

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We don’t support the installation of Exchange 2013 on a computer that’s running in Windows Server Core mode. The computer must be running the full installation of Windows Server. If you want to install Exchange 2013 on a computer that’s running in Windows Server Core mode, you must convert the server to a full installation of Windows Server by doing one of the following:
    • Windows Server 2008 R2   Reinstall Windows Server and select the Full Installation option.

    • Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2012   Convert your Windows Server Core mode server to a full installation by running the following command.

      Install-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra, Server-Gui-Shell -Restart
