Transitioning from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007 (For Now) Mailbox Role is Generating an error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Evening I hope someone is still responding to exchange 2007 questions.

    I am doing some work for a non profit nursing home who has access to exchange 2007 but are currently running exchange 2003.  For now I want to take them to 2007 until they are able to order 2013 next year.  That being said...

    1.  I have a 2008 r2 virtual server fully updated

    2.  I am pretty certain all of the pre reqs are installed  

    3.  I have attempted to install Exchange 2007 but when the mailbox role tries to install I get the following error: 

    "A setup failure previously occurred while installing the mailbox role"

    4.  It looks as if my new server is getting data from the 2003 server when I look in the recipient configuration area I can see all of the mailbox data from the other server.

    **I'm assuming that right now the old 2003 server is filling the mailbox role...is this blocking the install of the mailbox role on my new 2007 server?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
