I overloooked the fact that I had to prepare the org for exchange 2010. I installed everything and now get the following errors:

VERBOSE: Connecting to exchange4.domain.com
[exchange4.domain] Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message : The WinRM client se
nt a request to an HTTP server and got a response saying the requested HTTP URL was not available. This is usually retu
rned by a HTTP server that does not support the WS-Management protocol. For more information, see the about_Remote_Trou

I had to go through the install checklist when you fireup the exchange 2010 install. Is this what you mean pre-req?

from Windows PowerShell (right click it and select Run as Administrator)

Run:

Import-Module ServerManager

Then:

Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework,RSAT-ADDS,Web-Server,Web-Basic-Auth,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Metabase,Web-Net-Ext,Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console,WAS-Process-Model,RSAT-Web-Server,Web-ISAPI-Ext,Web-Digest-Auth,Web-Dyn-Compression,NET-HTTP-Activation,RPC-Over-HTTP-Proxy -Restart

After the restart, does the same problem occur?

The error I get is that :

No exchange servers are available in the active directory sites. . .

Seems like the server is not connected to AD. .

Have you disabled IPv6? If so, re-enable it.

What DNS servers is the network card configured to use? It should have only valid internal DNS servers listed.

What security software do you have installed? Can you remove it to eliminate it as the cause?

The dns was internal and was received from the dhcp ... I just made it static. For some reason te exchange box is not in AD
