Part 2 - Install Exchange server 2010 hosted and create organisation on Exchange 2010 setup Multi-Tenancy

I would recommend creating a server backup now and also after the install of exchange.
Then run the following command to install exchange 2010. At this point you will find out if you have missed anything. As long as the pre req's are all installed it should be fine. 

Setup.exe /mode:Install /roles:ClientAccess,Mailbox,HubTransport /hosting

Setup Organisation

Now you are ready to setup your first organisation.

Use Exchange Management shell from now unless told otherwise.

Firstly you need to create a default admin password for the organisation you are about to set up. You do this using the command

$c = get-credential

You will be prompted for a username and password. Set a username and password you want to use for th exchange administrator password for that organisation.
Then use the command to setup an organisation. Replace red text with your organisation details.

New-organization -name orgname -DomainName domainname -ProgramId HostingSample -OfferId 2 -location en-US -AdministratorPassword $c.password

The password entry $c.password means it will use the password you set for domain admin.

To remove and organisation use:

get-mailbox -Organization

orgname | remove-mailbox
