Hello,  I am setting up and 2nd Exchange 2010 server.   I created the database and now try to mount it.  Getting this error:

Microsoft Exchange Error
--------------------------------------------------------
Failed to mount database 'Mailbox Database 114050620'.

Mailbox Database 114050620
Failed

Error:
Couldn't mount the database that you specified. Specified database: Mailbox Database 114050620;
Error code: An Active Manager operation failed.
Error The database action failed. Error: Operation failed with message: MapiExceptionNotFound: Unable to mount database. (hr=0x8004010f, ec=-2147221233)

I did some research and one resolution was to set the domain controller used by the EX2010 server specifically.  Did that.  Same error when mounting.

Need assistance.  Please advise.

Is the second Exchange in the same forest ?
Can you tell me what was the SP and RU on the first Exchange ? ..... Second Exchange should have the same SP\RU or above the old server

From the Powershell command  GCM exsetup |%{$_.Fileversioninfo}


1st Exchange 2010 Server
ProductVersion   FileVersion
--------------   -----------
14.02.0328.010   14.02.0328.010


new one trying to mount database:

ProductVersion   FileVersion
--------------   -----------
14.02.0328.010   14.02.0328.010

Same.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

That is what I initially did.  Create new DB on this 2nd server and then wait for awhile to try to mount it.  

So, created another DB called "Mailbox Database xxxxxxxxxxx"  This one and the original one "Mailbox Database 11405060" both show in the list as dismounted.

Try to mount the xxxxxxxxx (latest) database.   Get the same error as noted above for this database also.

Setup.com /PrepareAD
