  • Error Reinstalling Exchange 2003 on Small Business Server 2003

    Hello all,

    I'm currently doing some consulting work for a small real estate firm, and as part of that they've asked me to help migrate their email over to an Exchange system and installing a BES server. The server was configured about 2 years ago by a different company, and after I had setup the accounts for everyone I was having issues with Public Folders and the Offline Address List and thus decided to reinstall. I started by uninstalling Exchange and everything seemed to be fine. I then started up the Add/Remove components wizard again and set it up to reinstall Exchange, popped in the CD, etc... . However, about halfway through the install I got an error about the IIS Store not registering correctly, and was prompted with the "Cancel", "Retry". Retrying results in the same error, but after a cancel it proceeds and finishes the install with the same error message at the end. I attributed this to a fluke and uninstalled again, and then reinstalled and was prompted with the same error. I read through a few KB articles at this point and thought perhaps it had to do with IIS , and used this article 325889. To try and resolve the issue. This still did not solve the problem and now when uninstalling I get the error
    Code:
    "Setup failed while
    installing
    sub-component Exchange ActiveSync with error code 0X80072030 (please consult
    the installation log for detailed description). You may cancel the
    installation or try the failed step again." I have to cancel, retry does no
    good.
    and something identical for OMA. I'm at a loss as for what to do, and would really prefer to avoid a reinstall as I would have to setup numerous AntiVirus, Backup, and Database utilities. I have error logs available if they're needed.

    Thank you for your time in advance

      The current state is more or less the same as it was when I started, even with the wonderful assistance from Merv Porter. I'd either already tried everything he had suggested or the new suggestions didn't work. Everything aside from Exchange works, so I may just wait for a new harddrive to come in so that I can do a full backup before I attempt a format and reinstall which will definitely be worthwhile If I'm going to be their sysadmin from now on.

        FYI actually Merv is a HE and consider doing a swing migration rather that a complete reinstall - that way you will save your AD, and your workstation profiles to name just a few. You will also then be working from a known situation, if you do the install - something I like to do if I "take over" someone elses work.
