Exchange 2010 server problems

I'm in the process of trying to get Exchange 2010 installed alongside an Exchange 2003 server. I was able to get Exchange 2010 installed on my Windows 2012 server but I'm now having problems after it's been installed.

When I go into Exchange Management Console and click on Microsoft Exchange On-Premises I see Organization, Servers, and Recipients summary's with all unavailable.
I click manage databases or servers and nothing ever opens. There is also nothing listed under my server on the left hand side of the console where I might be able to add my license.

If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate them.

Thanks

"Exchange 2010 installed on my Windows 2012 "

Stop right there.
Exchange 2010 is currently not supported on Windows 2012. You need Exchange 2010 SP3 which has not been released yet.
You will need to remove Exchange using add/remove programs, wipe the server and install Windows 2008 R2 for your Exchange server.

The problems you are seeing are all caused by the later version of PowerShell on Windows 2012 which Exchange will not support until SP3.

I don't understand what you thought it meant?

I misunderstood what the blog posted.

Based on this link http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2012/09/14/windows-server-2012-and-exchange.aspx it says..

"Exchange 2010 SP2 is not supported on Windows Server 2012"

Which initially had me thinking that Exchange SP1 might be. Seeing your post and doing more research it seems to be Exchange 2010 as a whole.

An older version isn't going to be supported either. Microsoft never go backwards.
