I have reinstalled windows 2008 and Exchange server 2010 several times, to get around the Initialization failure but unsuccessful.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thank you

Hi,

check the default domain policy if the server or a group where the server belongs to can access Auditing and Security

Have a look here http://howexchangeworks.com/2010/07/exchange-2010-error-process.html

Best Regards

make sure your account have correct permissions. It must be member of domain admin, Organisation Management.


If you any policy please refer below article.

I will try to increase the RAM and see....I gave 2GB, it could be not enough to run exchange 2010 SP3, but it installed properly without asking for more RAM

I gave it 4GB RAM and it did not resolve the issue.
As for the account...I run it with domain admin account as well as the local Admin, it did not work

hi,
let's seperate the installation

first, we will install the schema (this requires enterprise admin, OR "domain admin AND
schema master")

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb125224(v=exchg.141).aspx
p/s: use setup.com /

by doing so, this will give you organization management.


further, i need the log file under c:\exchangesetuplog directory.
some how i am guessing your domain has initially installed a exchange but some how it corrupted or some how.
