error installing exchange 2010 on windows 2008 R2


I try to install Exchange 2010 on a virtualized windows 2008 R2 (esxi 4.1). My server is a Dell r410.

My error is the following:
The following error was generated when "$error.Clear();
             if ($RoleStartTransportService)
             start-SteupService -ServiceName MSExchangeTransport
            "was run: "Service 'MSExchangeTransport' failed to reach status 'Running' on this server.".

Elapsed Time: 00:15:02

I search on google for this error. I told me that I need to reactivate IPv6 on my server. IPv6 was already activated on the server.

So I try to disable it and to make the change to my registry and my hosts file. Same error.

I search in my Vmware ESXi 4.1 for IPV6 and found a way to activate it.. I did it and rebooted my server and retry the Exchange 2010 Hub Transport Role installation again... same error.

Do you have any idea ?

Do you have any errors in the event log?

The issue is with the Virtual Machine and NOT the HOST VMware ESXi server.

For your information, when I boot my server I saw that IPv6 is disabled. Can this cause some issue ?

I'll check for the event log in about 15 minutes.

I cleared my event log and restart the install process.

This is my new event log when I receive the error:

ID 1002 MSExchangeSetup
ID 2102 MSExchange ADAccess
ID 2114 MSExchange ADAccess
ID 2501 MSExchange ADAccess
ID 2604 MSExchange ADAccess
ID 4999 MSExchange Common

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

are there any errors, in the event log which you can see are visble to this error?
tblincAuthor Commented:
All those error are related to my issue...

I formated my windows 2008 R2, clear the exchange 2010 trace in my DC with ADSI.

I reinstall everything and I had the same error.

Everything point to IPV6 issue.

Also, when I rebooted my host server I saw a message that told me that IPV6 was disabled. Can this cause the issue ?

Thank you

what do you think this is an IPV6 issue?

This is what solves my trouble.


The GPO parts.
