1. Introduction
Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 is a messaging and collaborative software product
developed by Microsoft. It is part of the Microsoft Servers line of server products and is
widely used by enterprises using Microsoft infrastructure solutions. Exchange's major
features consist of electronic mail, calendaring, contacts and tasks; support for mobile and
web-based access to information; and support for data storage.

Exchange Server 2003 (v6.5, code name Titanium) debuted on September 28, 2003.
Exchange Server 2003 (currently at SP2) can be run on Windows 2000 Server (only if
Service Pack 4 is first installed) and 32-bit Windows Server 2003; although some new
features only work with the latter. Like Windows Server 2003, Exchange Server 2003 has
many compatibility modes to allow users to slowly migrate to the new system. This is useful
in large companies with distributed Exchange Server environments who cannot afford the
downtime and expense that comes with a complete migration.

One can also use Windows Clustering technologies which can help you achieve scalability,
availability, reliability, and fault tolerance for your Exchange 2003 organization. A cluster
consists of individual computers (also called nodes) that function cohesively in a Cluster
service. These computers act as network service providers or as reserve computers that
assume the responsibilities of failed nodes. Depending on how you configure your cluster,
clustering can simplify the process of recovering a single server from disasters.

In this guide, we present a step-by-step installation and configuration of Exchange Server
2003 on Windows Server 2003 Active Directory. After completing the ES2k3 installation,
you’ll learn how to Add MX Record, Create and enable users’ mailbox on ES2k3. You’ll also
learn how to access your emails via Outlook Web Access (OWA) etc. On completion of
following this lab training with this install guide, you should be able to have reached an
Exchange Server 2003 competency level of advance basic depending on how much effort
and time you’ve allocated for the training. And capability to at least plan, design, implement
and deploy an Exchange Server 2003 in SMB to Medium business environment.


Part 1: Install Windows AD Server 2003

Step 1: Install Win2k3 AD

In this step-by-step install guide it’s assumed that you have already installed Windows AD

It is more challenging to install Exchange Server 2003 (ES 2k3) than any other Microsoft product. A list, as in shopping a-like list, will not be good enough; if you want to win the battle to install Exchange 2003, what you need is a plan, as in a general plotting a military campaign.
