  • Setup failed while installing sub-component....

    Hello guys

    Im writing here in hope to get some help on a issue I have. I've currently upgraded my domain controllers to run Windows Server 2003.

    Now im trying to upgrade my exchange server from 2000 to 2003. Ive get this error during installation on a new server installed with windows server 2003.

    I have ran both forest and domainprep on the schema domain controller. I have no replication errors on any DC's.

    The exact error is "Setup failed while installing sub-component Microsoft Exchange Server-Level Objects with error code 0x80072030. This error is coming up during installation of exchange server 2003. Ive tried both with standard and enterprise versions. Also tried different medias.

    I found 1 knowledge base article about this - saying that the 3 security groups Exchange Domain Servers, Exchange Services and Exchange Enterprise Servers have to be in the default User folder in AD. This is also checked up on.

    I get 2 event id's with Error 5000 - Source Micrsoft Exchange Server and 1 event id with error 1002 - Source MSExchangeSetup. This last event is saying: Exchange Server component Microsoft Exchagne Messaging and Collaboration Services failed. Error: 0x80072030 - There is no such object on the server.

    Does any have some ideas of what could be the problem here.

    Thanks in advance.
    Best Regards
