This is my servers:

server 2008R2 doman controller (AD 2008R2 level, two sites but all servers are in site 1)
server 2008R2 exchange 2010 with all updates and SP3 (CAS and MBX role)
server 2012 on witch i try to install exchange 2013 (CAS and MBX roles)

-  All servers has the AD and link layer topology service running
-  All servers are updates
-  All servers are able to ping each other on private IPv6 adresses (manual, no gateway on ipv6)


I can not figure out what it is, and how i can move on.

Appreciate all help i can get!

This was caused by the a previously install attempt om the same server.

I uninstaled exchange,  deleted the c:\programfiles\exchange server folder, restarted, and tried again.
