Greetings,

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:
Error:
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:

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
