I have a windows server 2012 machine. I am trying to integrate Exchange 2010 from scratch on a brand new Domain. This is the only server. The install gets all the way to the mailbox role and I get this error. I have ensured the TCP port sharing is automatic and running. And I even did a prepare schema and preparead and reran the install and I still get this error:

Mailbox Role
Failed

Error:
The following error was generated when "$error.Clear();
          if ($RoleIsDatacenter -ne $true)
          {

            {
              # upgrade the discovery mailboxes to R5 version, this will fix the RecipientDisplayType property of the discovery mailbox which was wrong in R4.

The object is read-only because it was created in a version of Exchange later than Exchange 1.1 (15.0.0.0). Current supported version is 1.0 (14.0.0.0).

Help! Also, I've done some research about how there should be some data in a homeDBD file in the schema? No data in any of my users that I can copy to.

Do you already have a Exchange 2013 in the environment in the environment which was either installed previously and not probably uninstalled or still existing Exchange 2013.

It looks like is complaining about existing of Exchange 2013 already without ever having a Exchange 2010 version in the org.

Are you using a distro of Exchange 2010 with SP3?  I believe SP3 is required to install Exchange 2010 on Server 2012.  Did you try running the Exchange BPA to see if it indicates what's causing this problem?

The problem was a corruption in the Active Directory database. We ended up rebuilding a new domain and exchange worked perfectly.
