Exchange 2010 Mailbox Role Install fails - "No Provisioning Handler is Installed"

    Question

  • Specific error: "$error.Clear(); $count=0; $ExchangeServers = Get-ExchangeServer -DomainController $RoleDomainController; $minVersion = New-Object -typeName Version -argumentlist "8.0.642.0"; foreach ($server in $ExchangeServers) { $currentVersion = [Version]$server.AdminDisplayVersion; if (($currentVersion -ge $minVersion) -and ($server.IsMailboxServer -eq $true)) { $count++; } } if ($count -eq 1) { Set-OrganizationConfig -DomainController $RoleDomainController; }" was run: "No provisioning handler is installed.".
    [09/28/2010 19:38:01.0654] [1] [ERROR] No provisioning handler is installed.

    This happens when I attempt to deploy the mailbox server role on a new installation of EX2010. This is installed in a 2003 organization as we are doing a phased upgrade. I'm not sure where to start as there doesn't seem to be much information available to help. I'm leaning towards some type of permission problem, but I would really appreciate any leads.

    Even some information on "provisioning handler" would be very welcome.

    System is Windows 2008 R2 Standard, Dell Server, 8 GB RAM, Xeon X3430. Domain controllers are 2003 R2 with latest patches.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi,

    Make sure that your account is in the member of:

    1. Exchange Organization Administrators.

    2. Local Administrators

    This error may also happens if there are more than 100 smtp proxy addresses defined on the Default recipient Policy. If this is the cause, please split up all smtp proxy addresses into two new Recipient policies.

  • I am still having the same issue after I have confirmed that the account we are using is a member of both.

    We have also tripled checked both our Receipient Policies and all pre-reqs. Any additional ideas?

  • Hello All,

     

    I have Exchange 2003 and 2007 servers and when I try to install an Exchange 2010 Mailbox Role I am also getting the same error posted above.

    All of the other server 2010 roles install with no issues at all.

    I meet all of the requirements suggested as well.

    Any other suggestions?

    Regards,

  • Hi,

     

    I have a Windows 2008 R2 Server with my first Exchange 2010 Server being introduced into an existing Exchange 2007 organisation. The CAS and Hub Transport roles install ok, but I get the same when trying to install the Mailbox Role.

     

    I have installed all the requirements and still get the issue.

     

    I have removed and reinstalled Exchange 2010 to.

    Mialbox role Failure Error: During the implementation of "$error.Clear(); $arbUsers = @(get-user -Filter {lastname -eq "MSExchApproval 1f05a927-3be2-4fb9-aa03-b59fe3b56f4c"} -IgnoreDefaultScope -ResultSize 1); if ($arbUsers.Length -ne 0) { $mbxname = $arbUsers[0].name; $mbxs = @( get-mailbox -arbitration -Filter {name -eq $mbxname} -IgnoreDefaultScope -resultSize 1 ); if ( $mbxs.length -eq 0) { $dbs = @(get-MailboxDatabase -Server:$RoleFqdnOrName -DomainController $RoleDomainController); if ($dbs.Length -ne 0) { enable-mailbox -Arbitration -identity $arbUsers[0] -database $dbs[0].Identity; } } }", the next error was generated: No Provisioning Handler is Installed.

    Any help appreciated.

    I have the same issue.  HT,CAS installed fine but Mailbox server role failed with the same error.    Setup failed when tried to call provisioning handler to stamp properties related to mail recipient for configurable object "Public Folder Database #######" of type "PublicFolderDatabase".

    And the error is "No Provisioning Handler is Installed".

  • Chris, try run setup again and make sure you are using the setup files from SP1.

  • Chris, I have the exact same error as you.  Problem with "SystemMailbox 1f05a927-3be2-4fb9-aa03-b59fe3b56f4c".  Thing is that there is no such object in Active Directory with that SID.  I have a similar System Mailbox 1f05a927 in my Root Domain but not in Child domain where I am installing Exchange on.  I have a ticket opened with Microsoft Support.  Will update you if I find a resolution.

    Thank,

  • Hi Ken, did u find any resolution for the issue. I am also getting the same error while installing MBX2010.

    Error:
    The following error was generated when "$error.Clear(); $arbUsers = @(get-user -Filter {lastname -eq "MSExchApproval 1f05a927-3be2-4fb9-aa03-b59fe3b56f4c"} -IgnoreDefaultScope -ResultSize 1); if ($arbUsers.Length -ne 0) { $mbxname = $arbUsers[0].name; $mbxs = @( get-mailbox -arbitration -Filter {name -eq $mbxname} -IgnoreDefaultScope -resultSize 1 ); if ( $mbxs.length -eq 0) { $dbs = @(get-MailboxDatabase -Server:$RoleFqdnOrName -DomainController $RoleDomainController); if ($dbs.Length -ne 0) { enable-mailbox -Arbitration -identity $arbUsers[0] -database $dbs[0].Identity; } } }" was run: "No provisioning handler is installed.".

  • Hi All,

    The problem seems to have a solution, with my scenario given below.

    1. We have the schema master (Win2008 R2 STD) in a different AD site, say Site A. We were trying to install the MBX role with 2010 RTM files in another AD site, Site B.
    2. Already had run the "setup.com /prepareAD" cmd with the 2010 SP1 setup files on the schema master & replicated the changes to site B.
    3. CAS 2010 servers in Site B were already running Exchange 2010 "RTM", so we upgraded them to SP1 & then ran the MBX 2010 SP1 setup.

    The MBX role installed perfectly & no errors whatsoever. Just make sure before upgrading to SP1, the pre-requisites for 2008 R2 given in http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb691354.aspx are taken care of.

    P.S. I guess if the schema is updated using the 2010 SP1 files, 2010 RTM setup does not understand the arbitration users, so you'll need to use SP1 files instead :) (as mentioned by AndyHWC)

    Shyam (MCTS Exchange 2010)

  • Hey All,

           I believe I have a similar issue.   I have a 2003 R2 Standard DC with Exchange 2003 R2 Standard.  I just purchased a new Win 2008 R2 STD. server box and installed Exchange 2010 RTM Std. on it.

           Everything went well on the install until the mailbox role.  It gave me an error all because of a "No provisioning handler is installed." Error.

     Event ID: 4 & the one of concern was Event ID: 1002

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Exchange Server component Mailbox Role failed.

     

    Error: Error:

    The following error was generated when "$error.Clear(); $arbUsers = @(get-user -Filter {lastname -eq "MSExchApproval 1f05a927-3be2-4fb9-aa03-b59fe3b56f4c"} -IgnoreDefaultScope -ResultSize 1); if ($arbUsers.Length -ne 0) { $mbxname = $arbUsers[0].name; $mbxs = @( get-mailbox -arbitration -Filter {name -eq $mbxname} -IgnoreDefaultScope -resultSize 1 ); if ( $mbxs.length -eq 0) { $dbs = @(get-MailboxDatabase -Server:$RoleFqdnOrName -DomainController $RoleDomainController); if ($dbs.Length -ne 0) { enable-mailbox -Arbitration -identity $arbUsers[0] -database $dbs[0].Identity; } } }" was run: "No provisioning handler is installed.".

    No provisioning handler is installed.

     

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     The suggestions above refer to Exchange prerequesites, but they that MS page speaks of Exchange 2010 SP1, wherease I already started my install on the RTM version..

    Really not sure where to go from here... Help!!

  • C ADmin Any luck Im in the  same boat you were!

  • Sorry guys, I forgot to update you guys on this issue.

    For my case, I had to uninstall the mailbox role then wait or force AD replication.  Then re-install specifying the domain controller for installation.  Not sure if it will work for you guys, but give it a try.  If not, I suggest you contact Microsoft to open a support ticket.
