Hello,

I am installing Exchange 2013 onto a Server 2012 server, we are currently running Exchange 2007 in a organisation of three other sites. We are the first site to upgrade to Exchange 2013 but we do not hold the Default OAB, when we run the Exchange 2013 install it fails at Step 10 Mailbox Role: Mailbox Service with this error:

Can someone please advise what might be causing this?

Are all the Exchange 2007 servers fully up to date with Exchange service packs/rollup updates, OS updates/service packs, etc?

The version we are installing is SP1 not RTM.

The issue has resolved itself, the install started to give us messages that Exchange was in an inconsistent state so we ran Setup /m:RecoverServer /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms and the install completed.

Thanks for the responses.
