I am trying to install a new MS exchange 2010 sp1 into a 2003 sp2 exchange Org. I have upgraded the Domain and DCPromo 2 2008R2 servers to domain controllers. The domain and exchange is in 2000 native mode. Installed all the updates and prerequisites have been done.

have you joined the server to the domain that you will be installing Exchange on to and are you logged in using the domain administrator and not the local administrator?

then you need to check the DNS configuration of the network card, make sure it's configured to use only valid internal windows servers for DNS.

There should be no ISP DNS servers listed.

when you logged in as the domain administrator did you use DOMAIN\Username otherwise you have logged in with the local administrator.

Have you also installed all the pre-requisites?

>>Text file with CN=All Address List
Actually, this indicates the permissions are not correct on that container.
