Verify deployment readiness

Before installing any server roles, verify the following items:
  • Your Active Directory schema has been extended to accommodate Services Manager. This is performed using the Microsoft Exchange installation tools.
  • The required DNS aliases have been configured. Services Manager uses DNS aliases to locate the servers where the platform components will be deployed.

Use the Services Manager Setup Tool to verify these items. The tool queries your environment and, if successful, displays a green check mark next to each verified item. If the queries cannot be completed, the Setup Tool displays a Verify button so you can perform the checks again.

For more information about Active Directory and DNS requirements for Services Manager, review the topic System Requirements for Server Roles.
