Exchange 2010 RC1 on Windows 2008 R2: error 2147504141

13/10/2009 - UPDATE: on Exchange 2010 RTM, this problem was solved.

As you probably know, Exchange 2007 refused to install if we disabled IPv6. Well Exchange 2010 RC1 did refuse to install if I did not disable it! Argh!

I encountered the error "The execution of: “$error.Clear(); install-ExsetdataAtom -AtomName SMTP -DomainController $RoleDomainController”, generated the following error: “An error occurred with error code ‘2147504141′ and message ‘The property cannot be found in the cache.’.”

The most relevant topic on that 2147504141 Exchange 2010 RC1 setup error is on technet.

Solution: The trick is that you HAVE to disable IPv6 BEFORE starting any Exchange 2010 RC1 setup. This is a known KB952842. Hopefully with virtualization, it is now easier to take a snapshot before starting anything critical.

The answer came from an italian guy's blog post: An error occurred with error code ‘2147504141′
