Hello everyone.

Just setup a brand new Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard.
Added the active directory domain services role.. and made the domain function level Windows Server 2008 R2 since all the clients are running Win7 Sp1.

I did all the pre-requisites (I think) for Exchange Sever 2010 SP1 and then went ahead and installed... it went through without any errors however a box comes up when I launch the Exchange Management Console:

Add exchange forest...

Asks me for a friendly name for the exchange forest as well as the URL of the remote power shell.

I have tried many different combinations but it simply will not install.

I cannot connect to the Exchange Management Shell either.

Here's the OUTPUT>>>>>>>>
____________________________________________________________________________

         Welcome to the Exchange Management Shell!

Full list of cmdlets: Get-Command
Only Exchange cmdlets: Get-ExCommand
Cmdlets that match a specific string: Help *<string>*
Get general help: Help
Get help for a cmdlet: Help <cmdlet name> or <cmdlet name> -?

Tip of the day #57:

Want to know what permissions an Active Directory user account has on a specific mailbox? Use:

 Get-Mailbox <Mailbox to Check> | Get-MailboxPermission -User <Active Directory User>

It seems that you failed to perform some pre-requisite steps before installing exchange server. Refer this article - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb691354.aspx

Pre-reqs were checked and double checked. We have installed Exchange 2010 over 100 times now.

The issue had something to do with the fact that the installer we used was Exchange 2010 SP1 while all our other installations were Exchange 2010 original.

Formatted C: and re-installed the server, used older installer we used in the past and voila.. exchange is fine.
