Greetings,

Had an instance, where a HyperV host server went pear shapped after

the installation of an exchange 2K7 SP2 guest server. Using setup /

m:recoverserver, i was able to recover all the roles to a new virtual

server (CAS;HUB). This server was supposed to also host the mailbox

role. When i go into the setup gui, to add said role i get the

following:

Setup previously failed while performing the action

"DisasterRecovery". You cannot

resume setup by performing the action "Install".

In addtion, if i run Setup /m:recoverserver from the command prompt, i

get the below in my exchange setup log file. Is there something i am

not doing that will allow me to access the gui interface or do i need

to "remove" this server and start anew. All the services appear to

be running fine, etc. No errors other than having to manually add the

server's account to the Exchange Servers group.

Thanks,

K

Having tried your suggestion, which i was sure would work, i still get

the following. Its

as if theres a switch thats stuck in the on position that needs to be

turned off.

Welcome to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Unattended Setup

Preparing Exchange Setup

The following server roles will be installed

Client Access Role

Setup previously failed while performing the action

"DisasterRecovery". You cannot resume setup by performing the action

"Install".

Exchange Server setup encountered an error.

Re: Unable to access GUI after Disaster Recovery

Ultimate solution was to remove the exchange registry entries, delete

binaries, reboot, and reinstall using the DR option.

Went through like a charm that time. Even have GUI functionality

back.
