Exchange 2010 Service MSExchangeTransport failed to reach status Running

Posted on Monday, April 12th, 2010 at 9:26 pm in


While installing another Exchange 2010 Server in a TestVM i’ve received the following error during the setup:


The following error was generated when “$error.Clear(); if ($RoleStartTransportService) {start-SetupService ÔÇôServiceName MSExchangeTransport }” was run: “Service ÔÇÜMSExchangeTransport’ failed to reach status ‘Running’ on this server.”.

The resolution is as easy as strange 😉

Before running the setup I’ve removed IPV6 from the NIC ÔÇô Binding.

So after I’ve enabled the IPv6 Binding on the NIC again Setup was running fine.

    I solved the problem by installing IPv6 protocol. I originaly turned it off because Exchange wanted a static IP address and I could not set it on the IPv6 because it kept telling me it was invalid. If anyone has information on this please let me know.
