Are you trying to install Exchange 2010 Sp3?
Are trying to install on Windows 2012, 2008R2?

Did you installed the prerequisites (http://www.stevieg.org/2013/02/installing-exchange-server-2010-sp3-on-windows-server-2012/)?

Hello and thank you for your responses.

Server 2012 Datacenter and I am installing Exchange 2010 SP3.  I have already installed the Client Access and Hun Transport Role during other setups but now have hit a wall.

I have checked my prerequisites but will cross check again using your links.

Any additional help would be great.  I will post again once I verify with your links.

Thanks!

Hello.

During Exchange 2010 Setup. Have selected option "Automatically install Windows Server roles and Features for Exchange Server"? If yes, unselect and try to install.

Please upload ExchangeSetup Log file.

Hello,

Thank you for all the help.  I spent a lot of time working through different possible solutions.  In the end I uninstalled Exchange 2010 and reinstalled and the mailbox role went in without a hitch.

I tried working through all possible errors at what should have been a simple task of installing an exchange role.  In the end I uninstalled and started fresh.  I have had no issues since then.  I don't feel is is a good solution as most cannot uninstall exchange and start fresh but at the stage I was in it wasn't a problem.
