  • setup /prepareAD error

    I got an error while my 2008r2 server is running the PrepareAD test

    Preparing Exchange Setup
    Copying Setup Files ......................... COMPLETED

    No server roles will be installed

    Performing Microsoft Exchange Server Prerequisite Check
    Organization Checks ......................... COMPLETED

    Configuring Microsoft Exchange Server
    Organization Preparation ......................... FAILED
    The following error was generated when "$error.Clear(); initialize-ExchangeUniversalGroups -DomainController $RoleDomainController" was run: "The well-known object entry B:32:C262A929D691B74A9E068728F8F842EA:CN=Organizat ion Management\0ADEL:39da7d84-6055-49ed-8185-0f44df7873a4,CN=Deleted Objects,DC=triviewgroup,DC=local on the otherWellKnownObjects attribute in the container object CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=triviewgr oup,DC=local points to an invalid DN or a deleted object. Remove the entry, and then rerun the task.".

    The Exchange Server setup operation did not complete. Visit and enter the Error ID to find more information.

    The error means what it says.
    There is an object that Exchange is expecting to find, in a location it shouldn't be. That could be a domain controller that wasn't removed correctly, an Exchange server not removed correctly, something like that.

    I would suggest running the Exchange Best Practises analyser against the system, choosing the Exchange 2010 readiness check.
