Exchange cumulative update installation failed at 99%

This is using MS Exchange Server 2013. My co-worker tried to install the cumulative update 11 (CU11). At first, he prepare schema, prepare ad, and then domain. He typed "setup /m:upgrade /iacceptexchangeserverlicenseterms" for the upgrade. However, the installation halted at 99%, and then whole system hung. He saw sort of error like - cannot form the trustrelationship with ad domain. After the system rebooting, Exchange is not working. There is one or two essential exchange services stopped, and attempt to re-start them failed.

What's went wrong, and how to solve the problem?

Appreciate for any help.

Check the Exchange setup logs.

Did you attempt to re-run the setup?  Also, you will want to make certain you apply updates that are supported by Microsoft.  For Exchange 2013, only CU12 and CU13 are supported; and oddly enough CU4 ("SP1").

Hi akhater and Todd,

My co-worker has to be onsite to check the setup file.

Will it be better if we install the CU12 or 13?

Scan the setup log for errors and warnings.  Personally, since the install failed on CU11, I would attempt to re-run the install with CU11, and then update with CU13 after a few days of normalcy.

If you still cannot get CU11 to install, then attempt CU13.

If you are not aware, .NET Framework 4.6 (any version) is not supported on a server that will host Exchange.  It is only supported after CU13 is installed.

Did you run the nltest command? If the error was related to a trust relationship that's where we should start. At least for me
