Can’t Install Exchange Mailbox Server role "Exchange is in an inconsistent state"

Howdy,

I was installing Exchange Mailbox server ,and my Server rebooted … when i tried to re-install the Mailbox role it gave me the following error ” – The Exchange server is in an Inconsistent State…..”

 

 

To be able to continue with installing the Exchange Server you need to Remove the Exchange 2010 server object in Active Directory.

 

  • Click Start >> Run >> adsiedit.msc

  • Connect to the Configuration Partition in Your AD site.

    • Under Configuration Partition >> CN=Services >> CN= Microsoft Exchange >> CN=”Your Organization Name” >> CN=Administrative Group >> CN=Exchange Administrative Group >> CN=Servers.
    • Delete the Exchange Server object that giving You the Problem.

 

After Doing the Above , i was able to continue with installing the Mailbox exchange role.
