Didn't prepare organization before install 2010

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
bleshooting Help topic.

The Exchange install will prepare the organisation if you haven't

Did you install all the pre-requisites for Windows?

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

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. .
Glen KnightCommented:
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?
Glen KnightCommented:
Did you re-run the script I posted above?

+ Even if you have not prepared Organization before Exchange 2010 install still during Exchange 2010 setup it will perform those steps in Background. This you can verify by checking the Exchange setup log.

+ Check IIS and see if it shows up any Exchange virtual Directories
+ Checked Registry for HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Exchange\V14 and check for Client access Role--> Configure version and unpacked version, check for other roles as well.

I had to reconfigure the DNS to an internal server. I have no antivirus yet installed.  . .
But this is the error I get when I start windows powershell:
WARNING: ERROR INITIALIZING THE DEFAULT DRIVE. Unable to find a default server with Active Directory Web Services running

You had Exchange server with DNS pointing to the internet??? NO NO...
You need to have it pointing to your internal DNS. Don't know how you managed to install Exchange in the first place. Are you sure that the install was completed??

Can you see Exchange 2010 in Control Panel -> Programs and Features?
Starquest321Author Commented:
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
Starquest321Author Commented:
The exchange 2010 is installed and can be seen in Programs and Features. . . the problem is that the machine is not recognized by AD>
