Installing Exchange 2010 on Windows Server 2008 R2. I would like to install the Exchange 2010 Sp2 in a Environment where Exchange 2003 Server is already there. Its as similar . where we need to prepare the legacy Exchange permission to get that installed and working properly.

Follow the instructions to install Exchange Server 2010:
