SBS 2003 to SBS 2011 migration - Error - The wizard cannot configure Exchange e-mail for your domain.

My migration was going along well until I got to the Exchange migration. I then ran into this error that pops up when configuring email for my domain. It said: "The Wizard cannot configure Exchange e-mail for your domain. To correct this problem, run the Fix my network task on the Connectivity subtab of the Network tab of the Windows SBS Console."
 
I did run the "Fix my network" task. It found two errors and corrected both.

So, I ran this task again and it came up again. Exchange is on the SBS 2011 and SBS 2003 box. It shows the legacy mailboxes on SBS 2011.
 
Any suggestions or pointers to articles on how to fix this?

Thanks!

Please download the SBS BPA and run it to get an insight of most common issues.

Download and install first:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=16475
Download / install both files:
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=15556

You need at least version 1.3

Usage:

If still no go we will need more info from the Set up my internet name wizard logs.

Hope that helps,

Olaf

Hi Olaf,

The SBS BPA tool is almost required to run a migration. That has been run, as has dcdiag, netdiag, repadmin, the IT assessment tool by Microsoft and a few other things. There were no issues and, in fact, the SBS migration guide says you should resolve any issues before you start the migration.

Anything in the migation logs?
Is the receive connector in Exchange created?

The received connector is there, but I did notice that the mailbox was not mounted and several of the automatic Exchange services were not started. I am not sure why. I started up the services and the mailbox store said "mounted." What is interesting is that the information store and system attendant services were both started. Anyway, I am going to try this wizard again tomorrow after I run a few backups tonight on the old server. Thanks for the tip that led me to finding the store offline. I am not sure that is the problem, but it seems like it could be.

You can set the services that aren't starting for a deleyad automatic startup. I always do . Works fine and gets around a bunch of startup /permission and timing issues.

FYI, Olaf, I will be testing out the migration tomorrow evening. I will let you know how it goes.

I thought this had closed. The issue was that the exchange processes did not restart on one of the reboots so the migration could not continue. I restarted them and continued the migration without too many more issues. I never expected that the services would not have started during the migration processes. Anyway, thanks!
