To install Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Enterprise Edition with a Consolidated configuration, you can run SetupEE.exe and step through the wizard. You can also use SetupEE.exe to begin an Expanded configuration setup. Select Prepare Environmentand the wizard will take you through the preparations required to ready Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) for Office Communications Server installation. For details about preparing AD DS and for using the wizard for this portion of the setup, see in the Deployment documentation. After you finish preparing the environment, exit the wizard and continue your Expanded configuration installation from the command line by following the instructions in this documentation beginning with Installing Server Prerequisites (Command Line).
|Running SetupEE.exe from the CD will not only start the setup wizard, but it will create the folder Deploy.Copy in the %temp% folder. All the commands in this section can then be run from the %temp%\Deploy.Copy folder or the appropriate subfolder.|
If you prefer to do a full command-line installation, including AD DS preparation, follow these steps to prepare the AD DS schema, forest, and domain from the command line.
