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?

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