Exchange 2010 - Administrator isn't assigned to any management roles

Hello,

I am currently trying to do a migration from Exchange 2003 SP2 to Exchange 2010. The exchange 2010 server is running on Windows 2008 R2.  I ran the exchange 2010 installer and was able to install the Client Access Server role without getting any errors.  After installin the role I am getting the following error when trying to open EMC or EMC shell:

VERBOSE: Connecting to EXCHANGE.southwhitehalltwp.local
[exchange.southwhitehalltwp.local] Processing data from remote server failed with the following error message: The user
 "southwhitehalltwp.local/Users/Administrator" isn't assigned to any management roles. For more information, see the ab
out_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.
    + CategoryInfo          : OpenError: (System.Manageme....RemoteRunspace:RemoteRunspace) [], PSRemotingTransportExc
   eption
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PSSessionOpenFailed

I made sure that the user is part of the Organization Management group and also made sure that there are no credentials stored in the credential manager on the server that might interfere.  The installation of Exchange 2010 was performed from the same account that I am trying to access the console with.  
I did notice that in ADSI i do not see a CN=Configuration which I believe should be there after the setup.

Thanks

if you open programs and features, and try to uninstall Exchange 2010 does it even give you the option to remove any roles? Are you sure the installation completed successfully? I would also check the event logs as well to ensure that you are not running into additonal errors on this machine.

Check whether administrator account is added to the "organization management group"..

Yes, the user is part of the organization management group, as I have stated in the post.  Also it does give me the option to remove the client access role when I go in Add/Remove Programs.  When i performend the exchange installation i did not get any errors other than required hotfixes which i installed, rebooted, and re-ran the exchange installer which ran until completion. I checked the event logs, I am getting the following error:

I am unable to run the commands out of the Exchange Management Shell since I get the same error when I try to open the shell.  I did attach the log though, thanks
