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.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

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.
