My environment is on 2013 CU4 (SP1) and I'm installing a new mailbox server with the CU5 installer.

I tried installing with a "Exchange Admin" account who has the following group memberships:
local admin
Enterprise Admins
Schema Admins
...and a bunch of other Exchange groups.

I get the following error when trying to run setup.exe /PrepareAD:

[07/22/2014 22:00:25.0208] [2] Adding access control entries to the security descriptor for the object CN=Configuration,DC=monmouth,DC=edu.

Obviously its a permissions problem.  But what permission am I missing here??

Are you sure the permissions fully replicated through? That is the only thing I can immediately think of that is not correct here. Also, you want to make sure you are part of the domain admins group also, which could very well be the issue.

Try that, and also look at DCDIAG /TESTALL and REPADMIN /SHOWREPL. No errors, then I think you just need to wait.

Of course.. that was it.  He wasn't a Domain Admin.  

When I tried to use the domain\administrator account -- he lacked Schema Admin.. so he didn't work either.

Thanks Adam.
