Upgrading to exchange 2013.  Working on a CAS server running windows 2008 x64, exchange 2013 is patched up to exchange 2010 SP3.
Installed all pre-requisites.  upgraded the schema and then attempted to "upgrade" the CAS server and received a message about exchange being in an inconsistent state and I have to run recovery...not really what I expected to see.

Any advise here?  Is this normal and I should run in recovery mode in order to upgrade the CAS server.  If it's not normal, it doesn't make sense to run 2013 recovery on a 2010 server now does it?

So I have to uninstall Exchange 2010 in order to install Exchange 2013...assuming I don't have additional hardware to throw at this?
