Last Modified: 2012-06-21
During the setup of Exchange 2010 into an existing Exchange 2007 Organisation I get the following error when setup has completed -

Mailbox Role

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.".

No provisioning handler is installed.

Elapsed Time: 00:02:29

Finalizing Setup

Any help greatly appreciated.

What is the patch level, etc of the Exchange setup files you are installing from and what version of Windows are you installing onto? Such as Windows 2008 R2 or SP1, etc?

Hi, Installing from Exchange2010 SP1 media, have applied all the patches as MS recommend, onto Windows 2008 R2 server

Have you checked your AD pre-reqs, what media was used to update the schema/domain, etc?
Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

No worries. Can I ask was the schema updated via the Exchange 2010 RTM?
