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?

Have you checked your AD pre-reqs, what media was used to update the schema/domain, etc?
Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

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