Microsoft Exchange 2013 installation troubleshooting

This post is also available in: Polish

When you install Microsoft Exchange 2013 Preview you can find a few problems.
Those of you who have yet to be installed in advance of the new Exchange can solve these problems before installation.

When you install the first Exchange Server 2013 Preview in the Active Directory forest, you may receive the error:

Windows 2012:

The following error was generated when “$error.Clear();
install-ExchangeSchema -LdapFileName ($roleInstallPath + “Setup\Data\”+$RoleSchemaPrefix + “schema0.ldf”)” 
was run: “The system cannot find the file specified”.

Windows 2008 R2 SP1:

The Active Directory Schema is not up-to-date and Ldifde.exe is 
not installed on this computer. You must install Ldifde.exe by 
opening Windows Powershell,running ‘Import-Module ServerManager’, then running ‘Add-WindowsFeature RSAT-ADDS’. 
Alternately you can restart setup on a domain controller.

These errors are caused by lack of tools LDIFD.exe the installer wants to use Exchange 2013 Preview in order to extend the Active Directory schema.

To prevent this error during installation, before the start we have a component of Windows Server install RSAT-ADDS, and so:

for Windows Server 2012 run:

Install-WindowsFeature RSAT-ADDS


for Windows Server 2008 R2 Sp1 run:

Import-Module ServerManager

Add-WindowsFeature RSAT-ADDS

Also after the installation of UCMA 4.0 before you install Microsoft Exchange 2013 Preview We check on a Windows server is installed Microsoft Visual C + + 11 Beta Redistributable (x64) – 11.0.50531 and if we have to uninstall it.
