After installing Small Business Server 2011 (with it's exchange 2010), the Exchange server is not automatically activated. In the past, I have always been able to download the SBS2011-KB2527626-X64-ENU hotfix which activates the exchange (part of SBS server). However, when I try to run the hotfix it says that Exchange is not installed. However, Exchange is clearly installed and working. So, is there some registry entry possibly that it cannot find so it thinks Exchange Server isn't installed?
Any help would be appreciated. The "trial" period for Exchange is counting down, so I need to get this resolved.
