Microsoft Exchange Transport Server

I have just installed Windows Server std 2008, and then started to install Exchange 2007 onto a Standalone Server. As soon as I go to finalize the install I get a Exchange Transport Server error, when I check the Service as it needs to be running to finalize the installation, it just says Starting, but never starts, I have formatted and reinstalled this Server in the hope that it may have been a dodgy install, and this Service still wont start, meaning I am unable to finish the Exchange 2007 Server installation.

Any help would be great

lastly can you check the status of IPv6 on the computer you are trying to install on.. it must not be disabled on the computer or you will run into the problems you are.. you can renable it and then the errors should disappear

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I have another couple of silly questions for you ..

1) is the computer part of a domain (I know it seems dumb but I am just checking)

2) the person you are logged in with is an administrator in the domain and also has enterprise admin rights?

Yes this is a Domain controller, and I am logging on as the administrator with all Admin rights Domain etc.

However in you second comment you said to ensure IPVer ^ is not disabled,. On the training course I did, they disabled it, so I did as well, I am about to renable it and will let you know.

Thanks for that, the training DVD I used was for 2003 Server and Exchange 2007, and they disabled IPv6. I have 3 more of these to do, you have made my job so much easier, as I have been stuck on this for a couple of days, and was about to log a call with MS.
