    Can't install Exchange 07 SP1

    Stupid, stupid question time...

    Why the hell can I not install Exchange 2007 SP1 on a brand-new, completely clean Windows 2008 64-bit (Standard or Enterprise) install?

    All I've done is:
    a) Install 2008 64-bit (Enterprise, initially, but also tried Standard)
    b) Download updates
    c) Setup as DC/DNS
    d) Install IIS/ASP/AD LS pre-requisites
    e) Run Exchange 2007 SP1 setup.
    f) Choose typical install
    g) Enter my org name
    h) Choose yes to "I have Outlook 2003/Entourage"
    j) Waited

    The Edge transport service always fails to start, and the installation bombs out. Can't go forward, can't go uninstall.

    "Service 'MSExchangeTransport' failed to reach status 'Running' on this server" -

    [6/20/2008 12:23:08 AM] [2] Generated Watson report with dump for the service MSExchangeTransport
    [6/20/2008 12:23:08 AM] [2] [ERROR] Unexpected Error
    [6/20/2008 12:23:08 AM] [2] [ERROR] Service 'MSExchangeTransport' failed to reach status 'Running' on this server.
    [6/20/2008 12:23:08 AM] [2] Ending processing.
    [6/20/2008 12:23:08 AM] [1] The following 1 error(s) occurred during task execution:
    [6/20/2008 12:23:08 AM] [1] 0. ErrorRecord: Service 'MSExchangeTransport' failed to reach status 'Running' on this server.

    I must be doing something wrong - I'm sure lots of other people have installed Exchange on 2008. Being a UNIX man, I'm at sea with debugging this stuff!

    Found the answer... Had to have IPv6 enabled on at least one interface.

    Why the hell that's not checked for by the installer, given how catastrophically the installation fails (can't uninstall, can't install anything else), leaving one having to hack out registry keys to remove exchange, I don't know.
