I have a clean install of Windows 2008 server.  I have loaded all the prereqs according to the release technote from Paul Bowden on this forum.  However, this is the same domain and server name that I had used previously in Beta and there are remnants I'm sure in Active Directory, which may be affecting this error.  My question is, how do I get past this?

Error: Some controls are not valid - The Exchange Server is in an inconsistent state.  Only disaster recovery mode is available.  Please use Setup /m:RecoverServer to recover this Exchange server.

Thanks for the help.

Is this a test domain or is it a live domain?  Just wondering if it's a test domain to scrap it and start again?

hy there,
i know very well that error
:)

you its about your ADSI, try to find out arbitration and mailboxes that could be remaining.

delete that, and then try to install then.

but if is a clean install, and put the domain level to 2008 as the forest too.

Make sure that your Windows 2008 server runs SP2 as well.

Well it is a lab environment, but we can't scrap it.  So I really need to know what Exchange objects I can safely delete from AD to make this work.  Thanks.

We wiped the server, so the mailboxes are gone.  I am new to Exchange, so I don't know about arbitration.  But I believe it has something to do with the left over Exchange objects in AD that I need to clean up.  I just need to know which ones.  Thanks.

UPDATE:

I renamed one of our servers so that it would not exist in AD.  Since doing that, the error was removed, which also confirms that I need to cleanup the AD entries for the old Exchange Beta servers.  And now in the readiness checks, this seems to also be confirmed by a new error message -->  Mailbox server 'USEXV09' must be upgraded to R4 DF11.7 or later before Setup can continue.  I had renamed this server to USEXV09, but obviously there are still references in AD for this Exchange server I need to remove.  Thanks.

UPDATE #2:

Found that in the System Manager on the one Exchange 2003 server in the domain, that under the Exchange Administrative Group, it has the Exchange Beta servers listed.  Also has them as members under the Exchange Routing Group.  But it won't let us delete them or rename the groups without having the later version of Exchange installed.  And obviously we can't reinstall because we wiped the boxes and we can't get past the error above.  It seems that Exchange is very difficult to manage and I am becoming quite discouraged as a potentially new admin.  Any help would be greatly appreciated to help us get past this.  Thanks.

Below one is for Exchange 2007 but I guess we can use it for Exchange 2010 also since you uninstalled Exchange 2010 Beta already...

Thank you so much.  This worked for us.  We were able to remove the servers and now the install is working.  I appreciate the help!  Next time I'll know to do an uninstall of the code first, but I didn't remember seeing that anywhere, so we just wiped the boxes and started over.  But I appreciate this help to finally resolve so that we can move forward with the installation and testing.
