Well my notes are pretty simple:

Install samba4
Join a windows 2008R2
Install exchange 2010

I mostly worked on making the install of exchange working on top of 
samba4 and also making it work at an acceptable speed.
I haven't spent more than half an hour on troubleshooting the startup of 
exchange once installed.
