DaveRainsberger -> 2003 to 2010 migration (25.Jun.2013 2:20:02 PM)

I currently have Exchange 2003 running on Server 2003. I am installing Exchange 2010 on Server 2012. I get the following error on the organization prerequisites:

~~ The Active Directory Schema is not up-to-date and Ldifde.exe is not installed on this computer. You must install Ldifde.exe by running 'ServerManagerCmd -i RSAT-ADDS' or restart setup on a domain controller. ~~

When I run this command I get the following error message:

~~ servermanagercmd : The term 'servermanagercmd' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again. ~~

From what I have researched, Server 2012 does not include Ldifde.exe.

What to do? Please help!

You Need to install AD admin tools and then restart the server

To Resolve this Error run the following 2 commands in Power Shell.
1- Import-Module Servermanager
2- Add-WindowsFeature "rsat-adds"

Restart the Server.

I ran into another problem.

In post-installment tasks, the first thing I need to do is enter the product key.

I have two choices:

1) Use the EMC to enter the product key
~ In the console tree, navigate to server configuration

problem: I cannot navigate the console tree. If I click on microsoft exchange on-premises I get the following error:


Initialization failed: Connecting to remote server [xxx.mydomain.myforest] failed with the following error message: Access is denied. It was running the command 'Discover-ExchangeServer -UseWIA $true -SuppressError $true'

2) use the Set-ExchangeServer cmdlet
~ Set-ExchangeServer -Identity ExServer01 -ProductKey aaaaa-aaaaa-aaaaa-aaaaa-aaaaa

problem: in the PS I get the following error:


The term Set-ExchangeServer is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet.

Again, not sure what to do here. Please help!

If Your EDB files of exchange Server have been damaged or corrupted then due to EDB file corruption, all outlook mailboxes on exchange network also become corrupt or inaccessible.To get rid of from this situation You should try to use a perfect professional application like for Exchange Server Recovery Tool. This software can very smoothly repair and convert EDB files in PST files without any error. A free trial version of this tool also available here:-

Software smoothly explores all the EDB files and gives the option to preview them. The main functionality of the tool is to recover or convert EDB files into healthy EDB or new Exchange server environment. To know more about the software visit: - http://www.****/****
