Is this the correct setup for Exchange?

    Would I have my DC with AD on one server and then a spearate server with Exchange server 2013 on? if so how would I go about linking these? This is my biggest problem so far I do not know how the setup should be. I've been playing round with AD done stuff with Group policy and deployment of software but I want to now get Exchange setup for my users, this seems very daunting.

    Well in an ideal world you would probably have different roles sitting on different servers.

    Have a look at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124558(v=exchg.150).aspx for a better idea on deploying Exchange 2013 (including AD integration).

    You need a second server for Exchange - do not install on a DC as it will just cause you problems.

    Your Exchange server, before you install Exchange, should already be a member server on the domain.

    Then, provided you hit all the pre-requisites for Exchange 2013, the rest should be taken care of during installation. This will give you a basic Exchange lab setup.
