How are you installing Exchange 2013? Are all of the roles on the same server? Have you ran the domain prep for Exchange 2013 install? Does the account your installing the first Exchange 2013 server have Schema Admins and Enterprise Admins group membership?

Based on the out-put you have provided there are several "insufficient permission" errors.

Check your access.

I have run through all of those steps.  We are using the Domain Admin with all necessary permissions.  We previously had an exchange 2013 server we were testing with that had data corruption and we had to manually remove it from the environment.  We are currently running Exchange 2010 on the latest updates and are essentially trying to build a clean server and migrate mailboxes.  Any other suggestions?

Did you completely remove all of the Exchange 2013 attributes correctly? Have you checked the Active Directory Configuration Partition where Exchange is stored?

I have seen that same page before and I cleaned up a few pieces.  I was concerned about completely deleting "->; DELETE
CN=Microsoft Exchange
CN=Microsoft Exchange Autodiscover
Because I have another Excahnge 2010 server that is up and running and has some records in there.  does that make sense?  So there is a good chance there may be some peices leftover.

It is highly likely while you have stated that you have to manually remove Exchange. If you did not uninstall Exchange gracefully, there are more then likely remnants left over from the manual removal.

Is there a way to only cleanup the exchange pieces tied to the 2013 server without effecting the 2010 server?

Reference the article that i have provided in my second post. Remove any Exchange 2013 items and start the install.

That will delete my exchange 2010 server as well I believe.

You only delete the Exchange 2013 objects not 2010.
