I see an error about insufficient permissions in the code. Are you running the upgrade as administrator? Not just logged in as admin, but you have to run with administrative permissions.

If the installation is successfull, the missing piece is the "Discoverysearchmailbox"

You can create the same using the command:
Enable-Mailbox -Discovery "DiscoverySearchMailbox {D919BA05-46A6-415f-80AD-7E09334BB852}"

i tried to run this command but it seems that the mail


here is what i got when i ran it:

[PS] C:\Users\changari\Desktop>Enable-Mailbox -Discovery "DiscoverySearchMailbox {D919BA05-46A6-415f-80AD-7E09334BB852}"

This task does not support recipients of this type. The specified recipient trinitas-itdept.com/Users/DiscoverySearchMailbox {D919BA05-46A6-415f-80AD-7E09334BB852} is of type UserMailbox. Please make sure that this recipient matches the required recipient type for this task.

    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : BA258E91,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.EnableMailbox

I then ran a get-mailbox and here is result:

[PS] C:\Users\changari\Desktop>get-Mailbox

it appears that to resolve this situation, i needed to delete the discoverysearchmailbox. I then tried your line to recreate and it failed but i was able to use the example to create this line: New-Mailbox SearchResults -Discovery -UserPrincipalName DiscoverySearchMailbox@contorso.com and it waorked.. it created the default search mailbox and added to the mailbox.. i then re-ran the setup and everything completed successfully... i then shutdown and restarted server and everything seems to be up and working fine now..  

it is curiuos that if this mailbox is a known issue to MS from prior release (ie 2010). Why didn't the process just delete it and re-create it..
