Can't launch EMC Exchange 2010 due to initialization Failed

I am replacing old exchange 2010 server with new hardware.  Old hardware is running SP1 with rollup6.

I installed new exchange server and patched to sp2 rollup 8.

When logging into the new server and trying to run EMC, I get the following.

EMC Error
I tried a different profile and get this.

EMC Error under new user profile
It was suggested that my problem is a duplicate SID. I disagree with this as I am not using a VM environment. This server was installed from scratch, not copied.

It was also suggested that I patch old server to patch level of new server. I can't do that because I only have 4 gigs of free space on old servers system partition and no way of recovering any free space. I don't see how I can patch old server any higher.

When I try and launch EM Shell on new server, I get the following.
EMS Error
Note: I did not have this problem when I went thru the migration in the lab environment.

I still have access to EMC and EMS on original Exchange server.

I am struggling to understand why you didn't in the first place.
Update he server and see if the problem is resolved. If not then you will need to follow the links in the question I have provided.

Why did you only go to SP2 rollup 8 and not straight to SP3 rollup 5? I don't see the point in building a new server with old bits.

This question is from when SP2 was first released:

New exchange server has been patched to SP3 rollup5 and rebooted server.

Error still persists.

I did the script update and it made no difference.

Problem ended up being with IIS. IIS default website was stopped. We did an IIS reset and the problem corrected itself.
