I'm trying to install Exchange 2013 on Server 2012. I have followed the prereqs on this site http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb691354(v=exchg.150).aspx

But I get this. Its not even an error I can look up just some powershell commands. Not sure whats holding me up.

Error:
The following error was generated when "$error.Clear();  
          try
          {
            $Target = $env:COMPUTERNAME
            try
            {
              $exSrv = get-ExchangeServer $Target -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
            }
            catch
            {
              Write-ExchangeSetupLog -Warning "Unable to set monitoring and server state to inactive.  Setup will continue.";
            }

            if ($exSrv -eq $null)
            {
              Write-ExchangeSetupLog -Warning "$Target is not an Exchange Server. Unable to set monitoring and server state to inactive.  Setup will continue.";
              return
            }

            Set-ServerComponentState $Target -Component Monitoring -Requester Functional -State Inactive
            Write-ExchangeSetupLog -Info "Monitoring has been set to Inactive while setup is running."

            Set-ServerComponentState $Target -Component RecoveryActionsEnabled -Requester Functional -State Inactive
            Write-ExchangeSetupLog -Info "RecoveryActionsEnabled has been set to Inactive while setup is running."

            Set-ServerComponentState $Target -Component ServerWideOffline -Requester Functional -State InActive
            Write-ExchangeSetupLog -Info "The server state has been set to Inactive while setup is running."
          }
          catch
          {
            Write-ExchangeSetupLog -Warning "Unable to set monitoring and server state to inactive.  Setup can not continue.";
            throw;
          }
        " was run: "Property ComponentStates can't be set on this object because it requires the object to have version 0.1 (8.0.535.0) or later. The object's current version is 0.0 (6.5.6500.0).".

Just to verify. Is this 2012 or 2012 R2? And are you installing with 2013 or 2013 SP1. Just what to verify compatibility.

I reviewed the log.

This line is interesting.

"" was run: "Property ComponentStates can't be set on this object because it requires the object to have version 0.1 (8.0.535.0) or later. The object's current version is 0.0 (6.5.6500.0)."."

Are you trying to upgrade directly from Exchange 2003 to 2013? If so, that is not possible.

No new installation of 2013. Planning on migration from existing 2010 server but can't even install the 2013.

Ok. So to clarify, you have Exchange 2010 in the environment already and functioning?

And you ran all the Exchange 2013 schema updates successfully?

Do you have any Exchange 2003 in the environment? Did you ever have any Exchange 2003 in the environment?

The reason I ask is that it is referencing an object as version 6.5.6500.0. For some reason it believes Exchange 2003 still exists in the environment.

Do you have access to the Exchange 2007 or 2010 installation media? If you have volume licensing you should have access to the 2010 downgrade media.

If so, run through all the prepare schema commands using the 2010 disk. Then retry the all the prepare schema commands from the 2013 media.

If you need help running the 2010 schema commands, check the lower half of this article.

Please note that in order for you to be able to install exchange 2013 your exchange 2010 must be updated at least to rollup 1 SP3 and the user installing it should have local Administrative rights.

Will running these  prepare schema commands  effect the current 2010 Exchange server and users. As you can tell we're not quite ready for the migration

Ah, was jumping between too many Exchange posts. WAs thinking you had an earlier version of Exchange.

Check this article out. The comment on ADSI Edit might help.
