installed exchange 2010 to migrate from exchange 2003, cannot see mail options on exchange 2010

hi, I'm in the process of migrating from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010.
I've just installed exchange 2010, with all the correct processes. In exchange 2010, where you would expect the drop down of the various option in the left hand pane, such as server configuration. nothing is listed. I and don't know why.

One thing I must confess to, is I saw a tick box on installing exchange that said automatically install the roles. this was UNticked.
could it be this that has caused my issue ?

It sounds almost like you've not installed any Roles.
Did you choose a Custom Installation type?

I'd suggest running the installation again, which will allow you to modify the current installation, and make sure the following roles are at least installed: Mailbox, Client Access and Hub Transport.Screenshot of Role selection


I installed typical. But the roles tick box was unticked. I am in agreement with you.

I'll report back.

im getting the following error with the tick box ticked, this is in mailbox roles

that's excellent, I'll follow that.

just curious as I would need to install sp3 any way.
could I just go ahead and install sp3, then rerun the install if the left pane doesn't show the detail after sp3 install.
Rory Clerkin

From my experience with Exchange 2007 I've been able to make changes to the roles using the service pack installers so you might be able to just run the SP3 update and go from there.
It's definitely worth a try.
You might also be able to download Exchange 2010 with SP included from the Microsoft Licensing Service Center.
