Trying to setup exchange on an SBS 2011 Server


When we run the connect to the internet wizard we get the following error

"Windows SBS did not properly configure your email. To correct this, re-run this wizard"

Have ran the wozard and tried vairous fixes and have not got it to finish.


When we try running exchange management console, it cant find the exchange server and gives the error below.

Connecting to servername.domainname.local New-PSSession : [servername.domainname.local ] Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message : The WinRM client received an HTTP server error status (500), but the remote service did not include any other information about the cause of the failure


Finally tried running EMT through powershell but it comes bac your powershell virtual directory is MIA

Is this a new, clean install of SBS 2011, or a migration from a previous version?
