Hi,

I have a new fresh install of Exchange 2010 SP2. I am trying to create a new DB but I can't mount them. The DB is created but it does not get mounted.
 
Here is the message that I am getting in the event viewer.

Active Manager failed to mount database MBX01-Editorial on server MBX01.abc.Local. Error: An Active Manager operation failed. Error The database action failed. Error: Operation failed with message: MapiExceptionNotFound: Unable to mount database. (hr=0x8004010f, ec=-2147221233)

We are migrating from Ex 2003 to Ex 2010 and Ex 2003 env is still in place.

As indicated by TechNet I ran the following before the Exchange 2010 installation:

Setup.com /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions <<domainname>>
Setup.com /PrepareSchema
setup /PrepareAD

All the switches ran successfully.

Any help?

How long have you waited before Mounting. Can be a while sometimes before you can mount a New database.

Thanks for you reply.

I found the solution in a different post.

    MS notes that the issue is related to having conflicting DCS and GCS entries.  So do the following:

    1.  Open EMC and right-click on "Organization Configuration".  Choose "Modify Configuration Domain Controller".

    2.  Specify the domain and the DC.

    3.  Open EMC and right-click on "Recipient Configuration".  Choose "Modify Recipient Scope".

    4.  Specify the global catalog server.  Make sure it is the same as the chosen DC.

    5.  Have a beer and enjoy life.
