Exchange Server, Exchange Server 2013

Exchange 2013 has arrived

I have just launched Exchange 2013 in my lab. I was so much awaited to see how Microsoft has done the new version.

Started from here to get an evaluation copy from Microsoft Website:

Completed the installation and configuration of pre-requisites:

See my unattended installation script:


Completed the setup here:

After restarting the server, started seeing the changes:

No EMC in start menu? 🙁


So, EMC is no more….. 🙁

Wow..ECP has came in place of EMC :)..That was a great news.. The new name is EAC

I found the change from EMC to ECP: Accessed via: https://servername/ecp and the name of the new interface is ExchangeAdmin Center



I was so much curious to open the Exchange Admin Center to see how the GUI is organized: see how I opened EAC


Wait for more…I need to grab in to the internals 🙂
