kanu2k12 -> Exchange server 2010 managment console errors (6.Dec.2012 10:05:27 AM)

Hey guys got some trouble with this exchange server and need your help.
Ok so the story.
I have a mail server (exchange 2010) running named mx01(server 2008 R2) and another server ap01 (2008 R2) for appllications.

So what happened I installed Exchange server Managment tools only on ap01 and ran it and it did a search on the network to find a exchange server and it found the mxo1 but gave an error that this server(ap01) is running old version of managment tools (14.0.0 something) and needs a new one (mx01 has the latest one installed 14.2.0. something).

So i have mistakenly installed an old version, I downloaded the Exchange server 2010 SP2 and tried upgrading and installed few IIS 6 features required, but then the setup failed. Now I tried uninstalling the old version from add/remove program but again an error. Now when again I run the latest SP2 setup it says that the uninstall was not completed so this setup will not run and the old one does'nt work. Now I am stuck with this useless tool installed.

Please help to get rid of this and installing the latest one. The server ap01 and mx01 are in production so cannot format any. Is there any workaround to get this resolved?

Hi, all exchange installations should actually be uninstalled via the exchange setup utility, and not through add/remove programs.
Try runnign the setup utility for the management tools you wish to remove and select the uninstall during the setup.
This should remove the unwanted version, then run the setup for the tools you wish to use.

as a further note, you may need to physically end the currently runnign setup process. Sometimes when an installation does not complete the process continues to run. Stop this before trying to run the exchange setup to remove the tools.

Ok so I need to run the old version setup to remove it??
Any idea what might be the process name so I don't stop anything useful?
Will try very soon.
Thanks

Yes, run the old setup to remove those management tools.
The process can be found under task manager, and should be named 'setup.exe' i believe from memory.

It did not work Mate.
There was no setup process running in task manager but I ended a Windows Installer process anyways. Tried to run the old version setup but instead on asking me to uninstall its trying to install and giving the same error that there is Uninstall pending.
