Exchange 2010 SP1: Exchanage Management Initialization Failed 'Get-LogonUser'

Hi

I have set up a test environment for Exchange.

1 x DC
1 x Exchange Box (Mail Box, HT, Client Access)
1 x Edge Sub

OS: 2008 R2 SP1 64x
Exchange 2010 SP1

Its a standard install, I have met all the prerequisites as shown here:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb691354.aspx

I have also prepared my AD.

I can send test email internally from the domain admin account so the exchange box is working.

But when I come to manage the exchange box (using the domain admin) I get the following error.

Initialization failed

The following error occurred when retrieving user information for 'domain\Administrator':

The operation couldnt be performed because object 'S-1-5-21-1171127179-xxxxxxxxx' couldnt be found on 'DC.domain.com'. It was running the command 'Get-LogonUser'.



I have googled it and a few other people have also gotten it, but there are no documented solutions. Does anyone have any suggestions?

The Setup.com /m:RecoverServer mode installs Exchange 2010 and recovers all the original settings from the AD objects. You just need to backup your database

Brillant thanks

I was also looking for a solution to the above stated problem, the only difference being that I am using Hyper-V instead of VMware.   Had destroyed and rebuilt my lab twice before coming across the above solution.  On implementing the recommendations, my EMC now works very fine.  

Thanks very much AndK167
