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?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
