Hello,

We are running a small company and we have 25 members. I wish to install MS Exchange 2010 on a Windows Server 2008 R2. I also installed Active Directory along with other needed equipments on this server. But I found a problem in installation:

"WSetup encountered a problem while validating the state of Active Directory: Active Directory server aaaaaa.net is not available. Error message: Active directory response: A local error occurred.

Click here for help.

I visited the above site for help, but was disappointed. Can I get the full configuration in AD, if anyone knows it?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your question. Its important to run active directory Health check, before you proceed with exchange server 2010 installation. You will test and confirm DNS Server configuration and health, AD replication and how to generate the necessary reports.

Go through the process of checking and installing Exchange server 2010 prerequisites, the actual Exchange installation, and obligatory post installation Exchange server validation. The validation includes checking setup log, the event viewer message about MSExchange setup, server roles installation and exchange service health status.

If you are planning to use this Exchange server as a member of DAG(Database availability group), you must use Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2 enterprise edition. Once you install Exchange 2010 on a Windows Server standard edition,you cannot upgrade to Windows Server Enterprise Edition.
