Solution

There are simply more server roles now required for an Exchange Server that has the Client Access Server role.

You can bypass the error by running the update with the ‘/Mode:Upgrade /InstallWindowsComponents’ switch on the end of it like so;

Setup /Mode:Upgrade /InstallWindowsComponents

Adding required CAS Roles for Exchange SP2 Manually

I prefer to do things myself, so you can add all the roles from PowerShell.

1. All Programs > Accessories > Windows PowerShell > execute the following command;

Import-Module ServerManager

2. Then execute the following command;

Add-WindowsFeature Web-WMI,Web-Asp-Net,Web-ISAPI-Filter,Web-Client-Auth,Web-Dir-Browsing,Web-Http-Errors,Web-Http-Logging,Web-Http-Redirect,Web-Http-Tracing,Web-Request-Monitor,Web-Static-Content

2010 CAS Role requirements SP2

3. Then re-run the SP2 setup.
