Exchange 2010 Setup fails on second CAS server, Requires version 0.1 (9.0.535.0) or later. Current version is 0.0

From the setup.log file

Property IsHubTransportServer can't be set on this object because it requires the object to have version 0.1 (8.0.535.0) or later. The object's current version is 0.0 (6.5.6500.0).

We tried installing cas&hub roles which failed similar to error below, and then just cas role, just hub roles and we get this message each time.  The setup program fails at this point each time.

More details: This is in a dev environment (private, isolated  network) with the following separate physical servers: domain controller (win2003), a 2003 exchange server (on win2003), two Exchange 2010 mailbox servers, a CAS/Hub server.  These are all physical (not virtualized) and the exchange 2010 servers are running on Windows 2008 R2.  I confirmed that I am logged on as a domain admin with Exchange admin rights.  IP6 is enabled.  Time and time zone is accurate within 5 minutes.  The server we are having trouble with is a fresh image, and was not previously used as a domain controller (just mentioning as this caused problems in other posts).

My understanding is somehow the setup script is not able to find the Exchange 2010 environment and believes that only Exch 2003 is available.  Does anyone have suggestions?  We don't wish to dismantle the 2003 Exchange server until later for testing reasons, but need to get the CAS Array running first.

When you say image??

I would suggest a fresh install of Windows 2008 R2 to see if that resolves it.

We resolved the issue by re-imaging the server and using a different server name.  Another change to the setup was when we imaged the server, we did not allow it to joine our produciton environment.  The second time we imaged the server we made it part of a workgroup, then added it to our dev domain.   Even though this works, we are still scratching our heads.  The problematic server name was exch2010cas2, the final server name was exch2010cas4 (and no, we didn't have an exchange 2003 server with that name).

However, as an fyi to others, if you run into this error, it is often because the imaged server name still exists in the AD, and was used as a legacy Exchange server.  What worked for us was to pick another host name.
