When i try and install exchange 2010, it installs everything apart from mailbox server role. I am a domain admin, schema admin, enterprise admin, and also exchange installer rights. I think this is permissions, but i cant find any similar errors online. any ideas?

Mailbox Role
Failed

Error:
The following error was generated when "$error.Clear(); $arbUsers = @(get-user -Filter {lastname -eq "MSExchApproval 1f05a927-3be2-4fb9-aa03-b59fe3b56f4c"} -IgnoreDefaultScope -ResultSize 1); if ($arbUsers.Length -ne 0) { $mbxname = $arbUsers[0].name; $mbxs = @( get-mailbox -arbitration -Filter {name -eq $mbxname} -IgnoreDefaultScope -resultSize 1 ); if ( $mbxs.length -eq 0) { $dbs = @(get-MailboxDatabase -Server:$RoleFqdnOrName -DomainController $RoleDomainController); if ($dbs.Length -ne 0) { enable-mailbox -Arbitration -identity $arbUsers[0] -database $dbs[0].Identity; } } }" was run: "No provisioning handler is installed.".

Yes, i was planning to add the 2010 server, then add a new dc and transition away form the server.

The server i am installing exchange on is not a DC or global cataloge holder, is this a problem? What is the issue with transitioning to exchange 2010 from sbs 2003?

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

yes. i added the server to the domain, as usual.
The exchange install has installed all components, apart from the mailbox role.
