I get the error that my account needs to be a member of the Enterprise Admins security group....but it is a member of this group!

Please, advice. Thank you.

If you’re running Exchange 2013 Setup in your organization for the first time, the account you use must be a member of the Schema Admins and Enterprise Admins groups.

Please check whether the account is also a member of Schema Admins group. If not please make the account member of schema Admins group and then try again.

THere is no Organization Management group yet because this is the first time I am installing Exchange in the organization. Also, the account is the member of both schema and enterprise admin groups and I am still getting an error that it is NOT.

Want to promote your upcoming event?

Are you going to an event? Are you going to be exhibiting at a tradeshow? Talking at a conference? Using a promotional banner in your email signature ensures that your organization’s most important contacts stay in the know and can potentially spread the word about the event.

Thank you claudiamcse.

I followed your link to the youtube video on how to completely remove previous installation of Exchange 2013.
My previous exchange installation had a power outage during its setup.

Any attempt to re-install again gets the same permission problem you were experiencing.

But thanks to you pointing out that the direction of completely removing exchange, i am able to re-install exchange 2013 no problems.
