the Resource Schema object under Global Settings in Active Directory directory service is missing.
Check this...should apply to 2010 also
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949526

Also, The exchange server needs to be in the same site as the schema master DC

My problem is that I cannot follow the suggestions from the article above as I do not see CN=Global Settings in adsiedit?!?!

and yes - may exchange server is in the same site as Schema master DC.

Do you have older versions of exchange in your organization?

Yes, I know. But it also has link to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb125224.aspx.
Is it Exchange 2010 you are installing the first and the only exchange server in your organization or you already have Exchange 2003? If that is the case you will have to prepare legacy permissions also.

I just figured out how to get to the CN=Global Settings object in ADSIEDIT and after following the article's (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949526/en-us) suggestion it all works fine.

I would point out only to somone else trying to follow the KB949526 is - the location of the CN=Global Settings is as follows:

CN=Configuration, DC=<Domain>, DC=<suffix>
CN=Services
CN=Microsoft Exchange
CN=<Organization Name>

of course the articler shows the "Distinguished Name" which in simple terms is a backward path to the object.
