Hello experts,

When installing Exchange 2010 on Windows 2008 R2, I am getting the following error:

Hub Transport Role

The following error was generated when "$error.Clear(); if ($RoleStartTransportService) { start-SetupService -ServiceName MSExchangeTransport }" was run: "Service 'MSExchangeTransport' failed to reach  status 'Running' on this server.".

Service 'MSExchangeTransport' failed to reach  status 'Running' on this server.

Elapsed Time: 00:17:05

Any help?
