Hi all,

I am trying to update Schema for Exchange 2013 (on server 2016), getting the following errors, the user credentials i am using is member of 'Schema Admins' and 'Enterprise Admins' groups, all DCs are 2008, main DC controller which have all the FSMO roles is 2012. So not sure why i am getting the errors below?

The Exchange Server setup operation didn't complete. More details can be found in ExchangeSetup.log located in the

Thanks.

You're installing Exchange with the Local Administrator account instead of a domain Administrator account. When you log in using "Administrator" as the username, you need to make sure to include the domain like "domain\administrator" or it will default to the local administrator account.

  Setup encountered a problem while validating the state of Active Directory: Active Directory operation failed on . The supplied credential for 'Exchange01\Administrator' is invalid.  See the Exchange setup log for more information on this error.
Tips me off that that's the problem.

Subnet is correct, new exchange server is in same subnet as other domain controllers, not sure where to look for these errors;

All the domain controllers are atleast on 2008.
