    Hi, I am trying to bring an Exchange 2010 server back from the dead. I am trying to install SP3 and the Readiness fails at the Mailbox Roles and gives the message to install the HotFix KB2550886. I downloaded the fix, extracted the file named Windows6.1-KB2550886-x64.msu However when i run it I get a message saying
    “The Update is not applicable to your computer.”

    I double checked that i have the right file for my Server2008R2 SP1 system

    Any ideas why this is happening?

    I can’t go forward with the SP3 install without first curing this one.

  4. Prabhat Nigam Says:

    KB2550886 should not stop the installation. It should be just a warning. Make sure OS is 64 bit.

  5. John Says:

    It is a warning, but if i proceed past the warning SP3 fails at Mailbox Role

    I think you might have already read the below text and installed SP3. Just to update here, this is my direction of TS.

    “Skipping creating Discovery Search Mailbox because of insufficient permission.”

    It seems you are missing some permissions and it is not KB2550886.
    If the issue has not resolved then please share the membership of the user which is running the exchange setup.

    Hi Prabhat,
    Thanks for the nice article.
    In our case, We’ve a single domain; one CAS&HUB server and one Mailbox server. Before mailbox, I successfully upgraded CAS&HUB server without any warning / error. The error I received while upgrading my mailbox server is quite different.
    Kindly have a look below and advise:
    {
    Mailbox Role
    Failed

    Error:
    The following error was generated when “$error.Clear();

    I uninstalled antivirus, disabled windows firewall and gave full security permissions to everyone for C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox\address. Deleted Action and WaterMark registry entries; match configured/unpacked versions under AdminTools/Mailbox and tried again but again got same error.
    Request and appreciate your kind guidance to come out of this situation.
    Thanks.

    Hello Prabhat,

    we are planning to upgrade from Exch 2010 SP1 to Exch 2010 SP3. we have multiple Ad sites and domain. Exchange is installed in Child domain. Do we have to upgrade schema using setup.com/ps and setup.com/prepareAd before exchange 2010 SP3 installation.
    I am not member of Schema Admin.
    please provide your valuable update.

    Thanks,
    Sandip

  11. Prabhat Nigam Says:

    Yes, service packs comes with the schema changes and they will do the schema update. you will have to run just setup.com/ps command. You need to be schema admin.
