In Chapter 6, we examined the migration planning that needs to occur before you attempt to
implement or migrate to a Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 messaging environment. Even with a
detailed implementation or migration plan in place, you still need to address some concerns before
you insert the Exchange Server 2003 CD-ROM into your server\u2019s CD or DVD drive. For example,
Exchange server naming conventions are important. Many organizations have server-naming standards
that provide server name consistency across geographic boundaries. When naming conventions are
well thought out, they offer clear, concise, and meaningful definitions for each server\u2019s primary role
on the network and in the organization.

Preinstallation Considerations for Exchange Server 2003
In this chapter, we will use a naming convention that describes each server\u2019s main function. The
name for the first Exchange Server 2003 computer that we will install isEX2003-BE-01. The prefix
EX2003designates the server to be running Exchange Server 2003 as opposed to Exchange 2000
Server or Exchange Server 5.5. The lettersBE identify the server as aback-end server that stores

Exchange mailboxes and public folders. (Exchange front-end servers do not store mailboxes or public
folders. If we chose to designate this computer as a front-end server, we might identify it withFE,
but you cannot install a front-end server without at least one back-end server already present in the
organization.) Finally, the01 suffix identifies it as thefirst back-end server within our organization.
Chapter 6 outlines in detail the hardware and software requirements for Exchange Server 2003.
As a review, remember that you need the following components in place on the target server before

you can perform a successful Exchange Server 2003 installation:
\u2022 WWW service
\u2022 SMTP service

\u2022 ASP.NET component (required on Windows Server 2003 only)
\u2022 Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP) service
\u2022 Windows 2000 Server with Service Pack 3 (SP3) or the Windows Server 2003 OS
\u2022 Windows 2000 Server or Windows Server 2003 Active Directory (TCP/IP and the DNS service are

required by Active Directory)
\u2022 One or more drives formatted with the NTFS file system for storing all Exchange Server 2003
data, logs, and components
Performing the Installation

Running Exchange Server 2003\u2019s Setup programwithout any command-line options reveals a series
of HTML-based checklists that guide you through the installation of your first server, additional
servers, and the post-installation process. The basic installation steps are the same for both the
Standard and the Enterprise editions. The first server you install is an important one. The Exchange
