I just installed Exchange 2010 on a windows Server 2012 R2 and when I open the console I am not able to manage anything there are no options and all the organizational health lines are stating unavailable. Screenshot is attached. I made sure the user I am logging in with is a member of all the appropriate groups but still getting nothing and not able to manage anything from the ECP console either throws an error.  Screenshots of both errors  embedded and attached.

I checked the event viewer and these are the only things that come up in it in the screenshots attached.  3 errors I saw in the application log.  The system log doesn't have any pertinent errors only information and a warning related to vmware tools.  what else am I looking for in the event viewer?

Did you check if the necessary Exchange Services are running?

Also check IIS logs and restart IIS
Let us know.

That's the problem right there. Exchange 2010 is not supported on 2012 R2.

You can install 2010 SP3 on 2012 RTM. But that is the highest OS you can load 2010 on.

So this configuration will not work.

To provide additional information about what Gareth Said above here is the Exchange server supportability matrix.

Thank you for the help much appreciated.  I actually updated exchange to SP3 and everything is working now even running on R2. But I do see the matrix and I'm not sure how to proceed because everything seems to be working fine at this point.  Why would Microsoft even allow you to install this product on R2 if it is not supported.  They should explicitly build that into the installation of the software if it is not supported and not let you install the product and then have you break your head about finding out that it is actually not supported.  Great Job Microsoft.

I'm actually surprised you got it to install. I tried recently and it bombed at the installer.
