    Getting REAL frustrated installing Exchange 2013. Tried to install MSDN Exchange 2013 and update with CU3 and that failed all over the place with exceptions. The goal here is to migrate 2007 mailboxes to 2013.

    So I am trying to install a “fresh” CU2 installation from command line and it goes quite a long way in the setup and then fails at
    Mailbox Role: Mailbox service. Fails trying to mount the database with “The Exchange server for the database object “Mailbox Database 0637172224″ wasn’t found in Active Directory Domain Services. The object may be corrupted.”

    Been a long frustrating road, trust me.

    Any idea’s???

    What has happened to the previous installation?
    Due to the tight integration of Exchange, if you just wiped the machine then you have made a mess. You need to remove Exchange correctly using add/remove programs. That probably means you will have to rebuild the previous machine, using the same machine name and then do a recover server installation of Exchange.

    You are aware that the Cumulative Updates are the complete product? You can install straight to that version, and also that MSDN licences are not for production use?

    You can check the AD Permissions for a database using Get-ADPermission, Add-ADPermission for objects in Exchange including Databases. You can also use ADSIEdit.msc to view permissions in the Configuration partition of AD.

    I previously had tried recover server and it did not work. I created a fresh vm and removed the server object from AD. I’m well aware of what Exchange does in AD. By fresh install I meant using CU2. And I’m aware of the license. All around installation of any CU I is problematic.

    Could you please elaborate? I understand it’s ‘get-adpermission “Mailbox Database Name” ‘, so what am I using for mailbox database name? FQDN?
    Or that jumble of numbers in the error message “Mailbox Database 0637172224”. I assume the latter.
