I was (foolishly) tinkering with exchange in a new SBS 2011 installation, and broke it rather badly. Only Exchange is broken. I can't take the server down, blow it away and have another go at it, but I am lucky enough that the e-mail outage isn't an issue that needs fixing promptly.
I would like a brand new clean installation, so I don't have to worry about what other messes I've created in there. I was considering doing a SBS 2011 to SBS 2011 migration following Microsoft Technet's guide "Migrate Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard to New Hardware". I'd provide the link, but the forum will not let me...
In step 1. though it mentions installing an update, which among other things "configures Exchange Server to support migration". Right now, there are several exchange services that will not start though (exchange rpc client access service, information store, etc). I suspect that this may be an issue and prevent migration being possible.
Would someone be able to confirm this for me before I muck around any further?
