Exchange 2007 SP3 in 2008 R2 forst/domain errors?

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I have an Exchange 2007 SP3 with rollup 1 for SP3 in a 2008 R2 forest/domain functional level and I am unable to create an internal SMTP receive connector and get the error attached. I have run setup /prepareAD but that did not help.
Watch Question

Try to remove existing receive connector & created a new connector


The only recieve connectors that exist are the default ones created by the installation. The old Exchange server also has an internal relay but I have always been able to create one on each server for migraiton.
