Hello all,

I'm Trying to upgrade exchange 2010 from sp2 to sp3
But the upgrade fails right before it finishes (client access role)
and I get the following error below:

[2] Process standard error:
[2] Unexpected Error
[2] Process execution failed with exit code -1.
[2] Ending processing precompile-ManagedBinary
[1] The following 1 error(s) occurred during task execution:
[1] 0.  ErrorRecord: Process execution failed with exit code -1.
[1] 0.  ErrorRecord: Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.TaskException: Process execution failed with exit code -1.
[1] The following error was generated when "$error.Clear();
          $fullPath = [System.IO.Path]::Combine($RoleInstallPath, "ClientAccess\exchweb\ews\bin\Microsoft.Exchange.Services.dll");
          $appBase = [System.IO.Path]::Combine($RoleInstallPath, "bin");
          precompile-ManagedBinary -BinaryName  $fullPath -AppBase $appBase;
        " was run: "Process execution failed with exit code -1.".
[1] Process execution failed with exit code -1.
[1] [ERROR-REFERENCE] Id=ClientAccessComponent___390b4ffddd484dcb9edc01dd725e020a Component=EXCHANGE14:\Current\Release\Shared\Datacenter\Setup
[1] Setup is stopping now because of one or more critical errors.
[1] Finished executing component tasks.

Prior to running SP3 setup did you update the AD schema maullay or let setup update it?

The user account you are using to run setup is member of Schema admins and Enterprise Administrators groups?

Hi Abdul,

Thank you for your replay

no i did not update the ad schema manually, I  let the setup update it on itself
and yes i just checked to make sure... the user is a member of the schema admins and Enterprise Administrators

Update the schema manually by running below command on 64bit schema master DC:

setup.exe /PrepareAD

Ensure you have good backup of AD before running the command.

Hey, I ran the setup.exe /prepareAD
for some reason it asked me to run setup.com instead of setup.exe

I ran the Sp3 Setup again and this time I've encountered with a different error:

Process standard error:
Unexpected Error
Process execution failed with exit code -1.
Ending processing precompile-ManagedBinary
The following 1 error(s) occurred during task execution:
0.  ErrorRecord: Process execution failed with exit code -1.

          $fullPath = [System.IO.Path]::Combine($RoleInstallPath, "ClientAccess\exchweb\ews\bin\Microsoft.Exchange.Services.dll");
          $appBase = [System.IO.Path]::Combine($RoleInstallPath, "bin");
          precompile-ManagedBinary -BinaryName  $fullPath -AppBase $appBase;
        " was run: "Process execution failed with exit code -1.".
Process execution failed with exit code -1.

How many Exchange servers are there? What are the roles installed? How many AD sites are there? Are they Internet facing?

It looks to me previous attempt to install Service Pack was not successful. Hence, you are getting that error message. Following might be able to fix it:

1. Build a second server for temporary use
2. Install Exchange 2010 with SP3 on second server
3. Migrate mailboxes to the second server
4. Uninstall Exchange on first server (current)
5. Restart the first server then install Exchange 2010 with SP3
6. Migrate mailboxes from Second to First server
7. Decommission Second server
