Preparing Windows Server 2008 for Exchange Server

You know all those ServerManagerCmd commands you need to do in order to install the necessary Windows Server 2008 roles and features? Such as:
ServerManagerCmd -i RSAT-ADDS
ServerManagerCmd -i Web-Server
ServerManagerCmd -i Web-ISAPI-Ext

Well, you can accomplish the same thing with one command:

ServerManagerCmd -i Web-Server Web-ISAPI-Ext Web-Metabase Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console Web-Basic-Auth Web-Digest-Auth Web-Windows-Auth Web-Net-Ext Web-Dyn-Compression NET-HTTP-Activation RPC-over-HTTP-proxy RSAT-ADDS

The above command installs the necessary roles and functions for an Exchange Server 2010 Client Access Server.

Tip: Remember when you open the command prompt to open it as an administrator. :-)
