Exchange 2010 Setup Issues
Posted on 2011-03-07
I am having a few issues with Exchange 2010 and trying to install it. We used to have Exchange 2003 running on a virtual machine which got removed as we no longer needed it anymore. Now the School has had a big revamp and Exchange is back on the bill. We have purchased a copy of Exchange 2010 from Microsoft and are now in the process of trying to install it. Only problem when trying to install it it’s failing on the tests.
Error: The Exchange organization is not in native mode.
Warning: Setup is going to prepare the organization for Exchange 2010 by using ‘Setup /PrepareAD’. No Exchange 2007 server roles have been detected in this topology. After this operation, you will not be able to install any Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2007 servers.
Client Access Role Prerequisites:
The nominated Exchange server for offline address book ‘Default Offline Address List’ has been deleted. Nominate a valid server and restart setup.
DC1 is running Server 2003 R2 64BIT
DC2 is running Server 2008 32 BIT
Exchange Server is running Server 2008 R2
Does anyone have any clues to how I can go about this at all as I need to get this up and running?
Thanks for your help!
