refer this article;

http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2007/migration-deployment/installing-exchange-2007-windows-server-2008.html

Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback.

kieran_b: = I am not sure what other info you want. In my first post i listed the entire (Readiness Checks) and then right below that i posted info on my server which you would have seen that it was a 2008 64bit server. So really what do you mean by your post and what other info do you want. Just tell me and i will post it??

jawad1481: = Thanks i will try and install all the needed roles and get back to you afterwards.

Thanks

I'm sure this is a moot point but is the server 2008 box joined to the domain?

debuggerauCommented:
and you've got Exchange SP1 X64 release, specifically, SP1...

And it says it cant find a DC, I'd get that sorted firstly..
netdiag or dcdiag when support tools are loaded..

MesthaCommented:
That looks like you are trying to use RTM media, rather than Exchange 2007 SP1 media.
Exchange 2007 RTM is not supported on Windows 2008, you need to use SP1. The SP1 download is the complete installation.
If you also download Rollup 8 for Exchange 2007 Sp1 and then put it in the Updates directory, then it will be installed at the same time as the installation.

CoryInIT: Yes it is joined to my domain and i double checked to make sure i was logged in as admin under the domain.


debuggerau: I am not sure on the media.. I downloaded the 2003 tools and ran the netdiag (See below next comment for results.

Mestha: I am not sure on the media. The media i have i got from Dell way back in July 2007. It says Microsoft Exchange Server Standard 2007, February 2007 Servers, Microsoft Licensing, Not for resale, Not for OEM, Or retail distribution.. Not sure how you tell if its an RTM media?? I am downloading the newest media though off of my Volume Licensing Site and it is the Microsoft Exchange 2007 W/SP1.... Will take all day to download though so i wont be able to check until late tomorrow. I can swing by work so i can burn it to a disk.  I hope your right on this one :)

Thanks all for the replys

You don't need to download the full install media from Microsoft. That contains all the language packs for UM. Just download SP1 from Microsoft's public site - it is a 800mb download or something like that. That has the entire installation set just without the UM language packs.

If the CD was supplied in July 2007 then it is RTM, not SP1, which is why you are getting failures.

There is only one build of Exchange 2007.
It will initially come up in evaluation mode, you just enter your key.
