Microsoft Exchange 2013 Preview Installation Step by Step Video


Hi Guys, Smile in this article I have step down the Exchange 2013 preview installation process…

 

Introduction

Microsoft Exchange 2013 preview consists only 2 roles, name as Client Access Server Role and Mailbox Server Role

New Feature in Exchange Server 2013


  1. Only Client Access Server role and Mailbox Server role is included with the new release.
  2. New customized Outlook 2013 and Outlook Web App (OWA) user interface.
  3. Users can offline access for OWA.
  4. No more Centralized administrator console (EMC), all the administration is done through new web based Exchange Administration Center and Exchange PowerShell (V 3.0).
  5. Data loss prevention capabilities that can be integrated in to Transport Rules.
  6. Improvement to HA features.
  7. Public folders are now stored in the Database and can take advantage of HA.

    Client Access Server Role


    Responsible to accept all the traffic coming from all clients such as Microsoft Office Outlook, Web App, Mobile Devices and ect. and deliver mails to other mail hosts in the internet.

    CAS only perform authentication, redirection and proxy services, there is no interpretation done by the CAS role. Connections to the Client Access server are stateless which means that there is no need to maintain affinity between a client and an individual Client Access server for subsequent connections because all data processing and transformation occurs on the Mailbox server. Because of this change Exchange 2013 preview requires Layer 4 load balancing, Layer 4 load balancing is protocol-unaware and balances traffic based on IP address and TCP/UDP port.

    Mailbox Server Role


    Stores mailbox data and perform processing for various client connections. You can make this role HA with DAG (Database Availability Group).

    It is possible to install Exchange 2013 preview on one or more Active Directory sites but you must install at least one mailbox server and client access server or server which consist both server roles. Many functions in Exchange 2013 Preview, such as client connectivity and the Exchange Administration Center, won’t work until both Mailbox and Client Access servers are installed in an Active Directory site.

    Mailbox servers house the mailbox data for the organization and perform data rendering and other operations. Mailbox servers can be grouped into back-end clusters which consist of database availability groups (DAG). Mailbox servers perform the following functions:

    • Host mailbox databases.
    • Provide email storage.
    • Host public folder databases.
    • Calculate email address policies.
    • Conduct multi-mailbox searches.
    • Provide high availability and site resiliency.
    • Provide messaging records management and retention policies.
    • Handle connectivity because clients don’t connect directly to the Mailbox servers.
    • Provide all core Exchange functionality for a given mailbox where that mailbox’s              database is currently activated.
    • Fails over mailbox access when a database fails over.

      compatibility issues. Whenever I look at your
      website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, great blog!
