Exchange 2016 Installing a simple Second server

Exchange 2016 Installing a simple Second server

Exchange 2016 Installing a simple Second server

(OP)
Hi all!

I am trying to install a second Exchange 2016 in an organization that already has one installed.
In step 7 of 14 stop installing with the error that is below.

Any suggestion?

Error:
The following error was generated when it was run "$error.Clear();
if (![String]::IsNullOrEmpty($RoleDomainController))
{
$masSid = add-ManagedAvailabilityServerGroupMember -DomainController $RoleDomainController -ServerName $RoleNetBIOSName
}
": "Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Tasks.CouldNotFindServerDirectoryEntryException: No directory entry found for the server SecondServer.
in Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.Task.ThrowError(Exception exception, ErrorCategory errorCategory, Object target, String helpUrl)
in Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Tasks.AddManagedAvailabilityServerGroupMember.InternalProcessRecord()

in Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.Task.InvokeRetryableFunc(String funcName, Action func, Boolean terminatePipelineIfFailed)".

RE: Exchange 2016 Installing a simple Second server

Are you trying to have both servers service the same domain or different ones? Are you going to create a DAG for the current and new server? Are you trying to install this on a DC?

Hi DrBOb
Thanks for your answer.
Both servers are in the some domain, No DAG, is a just a server client of the DC.

RE: Exchange 2016 Installing a simple Second server

So what is your exact goal of this install? I assume you want both servers to serve mail for the same domain based on what you say above. If you do it in a DAG then you have one database for both servers which will save on overall space and have redundancy. We have our two mail servers in a DAG which resides on our NAS so if either go down the other pics up the slack.

Do you have a MS KB you are following when you say step 7 of 14 is where it is failing? Can you link it here? Does Event Viewer point to any particular error?

We are having problems on the eschange server, so the idea was to install a new server, migrate the users to the new database and remove the old server.
On the other hand, the graphical interface of the installation setup stops in step 7 of 14 showing this error, and the event viewer does not show anything other than the same error that I copied above.

If my memory servers me correct, you do not have to do any of the AD stuff when installing the second server. This may be where you are failing. Do you have a KB or article you are following for install or just winging it?

What issues do you have with your current exchange server?

Hi Again,
I'm using the Exchange server prerequisites guide from Microsoft, so, all the KB needed were insalled in the new server, I know that the AD prerequisites there is not necesaries.
The current server was hacked and there are a lot of programs that no longer work, so the idea was to install a new server.

Next week I will try to insatll a new Server 2019 whith Exchange 2019 only to test this possibility.
regards
