DAG Setup Error - the exchange trusted subsystem is not a member of the local administrators group

I've tried this on 2 servers.  1st server was a DC I found out that it should be a non-DC server so I moved it to non-DC server.  Added the "Exchange Trusted Subsystem" group to the Local Admins group of that server and it still has the same error.  Reboot all servers involved and it still has the same error.  It doesn't create the Folder or Folder Share for the Quorum although the wizard says it is completeing, albeit with this error message.

Did you add the Witness Server to the Exchange Trusted Subsystem group?  That should make the error go away if you have not.

Yes I have.  Didn't do anything.  Just to clarify here the group membership are as follows:

1)  The Exchange Trusted Subsystem group is a member of the Witness Server's Local Administrators group.
2)  The Computer Account of this Witness server is a member of the Exchange Trusted Subsystem group.

These action seem redundant and the book I've read "Exchange Server 2010 Administrator's Pocket Consultant" doesn't mention step #2 as you advised whatsoever.

Are you using Service Pack 1?  Perhaps this is your issue.

Had to remove the 1 Exchange server that was in the DAG group prior to reconfiguring it.  I call this a "jiggling the handle" solution as nothing fundamentally changed to get it working, just configuring and then reconfiguring settings the same way over and over again until it takes them without err.
