I am trying to install Exchange 2010 on a new virtual server (2008 R2) on my domain.
The domain already has two Exchange 2003 boxes on it, my plan being to bring up the new 2010 box and migrate everything to that.
When I run the Exchange 2010 setup wizard installation fails for the Mailbox Role when trying to start the information store.
If I try to start the IS manually I get the following events logged in event viewer:
Error 29/01/2010 11:55:03 MSExchangeIS 1121 General
Error 0x8004010f connecting to Active Directory.
Error 29/01/2010 11:55:03 MSExchangeIS 5000 General
Unable to initialize the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service. - Error 0x8004010f.
I have prepped the domain and followed the pre-requisites.
DCDIAG checks out fine.
Have tried the KB articles on checking the AD permissions with ADSIEDIT.msc and also made sure the organisation name has valid characters in it.
It seems that there is an issue in AD somewhere but I can't seem to find it at the moment.
