    Windows Server 2008 and Exchange Server 2007 (running in vmware)

    I get this error when I try to install the mailbox role.

    "The Exchange server address list service failed to respond. This could be because of an address list or email address policy configuration error."

    I keep running into something like this when searching:

    Code:
    Open ADSIEDIT
    Navigate to CN=Configuration, CN=Services, CN=Microsoft Exchange, CN=, CN=Recipient Policies
    You will find all your Exchange 2000/2003 recipient policies here. Open each and find the purportedSearch attribute. Click Edit to open the value. Note the original value of this field and save it in a notepad file. Then hit the Clear button to change the value to (not set).
    Do the previous step for each recipient policy
    Re-run Setup. You will find that setup completes successfully!
    The problem is that I don't have CN=Configuration or anything like that when in ADSIEDIT. This is a new install and most of the stuff I read is from people have problems when upgrading or something...

    Anyone have any ideas???

    I'm trying to make myself learn Exchange and it doesn't help that I can't even get it to install correctly :mad:

    Yea, I've seen that, but still can't get it to work. If I change the date and try to install the mailbox role, I get an error saying that the active directory server is not available or something... You would think Microsoft would have released a patch or something to fix that issue.

    This is my third reinstall of Exchange. :mad:

    Ok, I somehow got the the mailbox role to install, but I still get the same address list service error when I try and add a mailbox.
