In order to install Exchange 2010 Client Access Server role
installation on Windows 2008 R2 its one of the pre-requisite that you
change the startup mode for Net. TCP Port Sharing service from manual to
automatic otherwise you will see this error during Rediness Check.

Change startup mode of “Net.Tcp Port Sharing Service” from Manual to Auto by running this command in PowerShell.
Set-Service NetTcpPortSharing -StartupType Automatic
