Urgent Exchange Problem!
Seems the server as decided to update the exchange 2010 sp1 rollup 2 to rollup 3 v3
Its seems to have failed. Anyideas how to get this all working again?
All the services can run except the transport service.
Run I try to run this it takes a while, then it stops itself
I have also removed the ForeFront Protection 2010 for Exchange to see if that was a problem or not. I also disabled it before removing it, using the command line
I have tried to reinstall the rollup 2 update (the rollup 3 is not installed, not in the list of installed updated, while rollup 2 is)
But when I do this when it tries to stop the services, it then rolls back
This is the same when I attempt to install rollup 3 v3
I thought to remove the hub transport, but the setup compained about having 2 send connectors on the server, cant use the console, because it wont connect to the server, so can't write down what the current send connectors are and also delete them, so I can remove the hub transport and then attempt to install it again.
Again if I try to remove the Client Access Role to reinstall it, I get an error on that on to - 'Unable to read data from the Metabase. Ensure that Microsoft Information Services is installed'
Any ideas would be very greatful.... Dreading Monday if this aint fixed :( getting annoyed at this already.
If anyone is upto it and dont mind looking, I can give u remote connection to have a look.
I had problems with FP 2010 for exchange causing issues, cant remember how I fixed it but I can have a look if you want?
I dont think it's forefront causing the issue anymore, I disabled it through a command line, uninstalled it, deleted all the registry entries I could find using the find tool with the wors searched for was forefront. Alos deleted the install folders where it installed to.
I thinking the update crashed and as some newer build file and some old build of files. All I can think of at the momment
But like you set still could be forefront
Anyone can look if they want?
I can still have a look if you wish
OK, I m just installing rollup 3 on my home test machine
I had this problem with rollup 2.
In the end I had to call the update through an elevated powershell prompt.
I had problems with Security Rollups on Exchange 2007, the problem I found was the remote BackUp Exec Exchange Agent was causing the update to hang. Stopped all the services for the agent first and rollups have gone through no problem since.
might have just solved the problem! :)
Seems one of the iis services was disabled (iis admin)
all the services did get disabled when the upgrade failed, this one I must of missed out
error on owa when you click continue on the security certificate
Have you tried rebooting the IIS web server? Also, there may be something in the IIS logs about the error.
This may be of some help as well http://support.microsoft.com/kb/293386
Can you access your inbox via Outlook?
tbh I havent
Seen the trasport role can start without an error since I reinstalled the role, throught I'll do the same with the client access role.
Will not reinstall the database role of course
hopefully after that it will work, then I can the the update to rollup 3 manually
I can see you can login now. Well, you can view the login form.
seems email is not sending or recieving, dont thing I set this backup correct, last time I set this up I copied the settings from how old exchange server 2007
if someone could have a look that would be great
