Permissions issue?

ok..i have 2008 x 64 running on a VM box and trying to install exchange 2k7..i've installed 2k7 on a 2k3 server, this is my first go around with 2008.  When i try to run the setup when logged in as the domain admin account i get an error saying i don't have permission..i can install when using the local admin account but fail at "domain account" requisite.  Any ideas?  Also i am installing this into a domain with an existing 2k3 exchange server that we will be migrating to, anything i need to watch out for..?

Thanks

Is the account you are using also an "Enterprise Admin"?

Also make sure if you are adding this machine to an existing Exchange organization that it is also a member of the "Exchange Administrators" group.

So when it asks in the intial setup "Please Spcify the name for this Exchange organization I'll keep the same one that's in the system manager for 2003, in this case "First Organization (Exchange).

any other ideas about the permissions issue?

Can you tell me the exact error message that you get?

On the page where it asks you for the account, can you give me the exact wording of the request?

Yes, you should keep the existing name.

"Failed to initialize the log file: Access to the path C:Exchangesetuplogs\exchangesetup.log is denied. Setup will not continue"

Try this, instead of choosing the autorun function on the CD to launch the Exchange setup, open up My Computer, Browse to the CD and right click on the setup file to choose "Run as Administrator".
