Hi,

I'm Installing MS Exchange on a brand new Windows 2008 R2. The mailbox role instalation fails to install because it cannot start MSExchangeIS service.

I try to start the service manually but it also fails.

What can I do?

Thank you.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

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

What I understand from this article is that a third-party antivirus software may have corrupted the service log and so the service stops.

I think this cannot be the case, because I have no third-party antivirus software installed on this server yet.

Thank you.

Hi:

FInally I worked it out with the only reliable solution with Microsoft products. Format the server and re-install the Operating System. Now the Exchange instalation executed with no errors from start to end.

The only thing I changed this time is that Installed Exchangeright after installing the OS and AD services, without having installed Microsoft Updates. I hope that helps someone.

Thanks for your help.
