This post has 3 different error fix which stop my installation, if you lucky enough to not have one of them , just skip that section, and move to the section of the post which is related to you

1) Admin Tools Role is not current / Mailbox , Client Access , Hub Transport Role is not current error

Does your installation stop with this errors and “click here for help” is not giving you a specific answer ?

Here is the steps on how I did fix the issue.

 

Admin Tools Role is not current:

To fix this error you have to open the registry in your Exchange Server and check the “ConfiguredVersion” and “UnpackedVersion” keys , they should be all same

For Microsoft Exchange Server SP1: 14.1.218.15

For Microsoft Exchange Server SP2: 14.2.247.5

STEPS to fix this issue

1) Open Exchange Management Shell , enter the below cmd to check and verify the Admin Tools version

Get-ExchangeServer | FL

Write the Admin Display Version [This screenshot has the “correct” settings ]

AdminDisplayVersion: Version 14.2 (Build 247.5)

2) Open the registry editor, navigate to :

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ExchangeServer\v14\

and compare the registry entries for the below keys: and make sure they are same

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ExchangeServer\v14\MailboxRole

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ExchangeServer\v14\ClientAccessRole

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ExchangeServer\v14\HubTransportRole

They have to be all same, if not modify the keys based on your Service Pack .

In my case the values where : 14.1.218.15 for ConfiguredVersion in the MailboxRole,ClientAccessRole & HubTransportRole. I did modify them to be same as in the above screenshot 14.2.247.5 which fixed the

3) Delete the “action” and “watermark keys” from the registry.

4) Reboot your Server , restart the Service Pack installation process.

Good luck

 

Mailbox Role Failed, error indicates PublicFolderDatabase Cannot bind argument to parameter 'Identity' because it is null.

 

You did fix the Admin Tools issue, rebooted your server, restarted your Service Pack installation process, and let me guess , you still cannot see the “installation completed successfully” message, instead:

 

Mailbox Role
Failed

Error:

If you really don’t have any public folder, Don’t worry, I have a solution for you Smile If you do have a public folder database then make sure to take a backup , before you do the steps.

1) Open the registry editor, navigate to :

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ExchangeServer\v14\MailboxRole

2) Delete the Watermark key

3) Check the UnpackedVersion Data value and make sure its same with the AdminTool Value

4) As you may have noticed , I am missing the ConfiguredVersion key, go ahead and create the key, and make sure to add the data as:

ConfiguredVersion should have Data value as: 14.2.247.5

5) Reboot the Server

6) Restart the Service Pack Installation

Good luck

 

beremote() Error Fix Steps

Error: Setup cannot continue with the upgrade because the “beremote()” process has open files

This error will happen if you have a third party backup software installed in your Exchange Server environment. In my case I had Symantec Backup Exec 2012 installed, so the solution was , the stop the Backup Exec services via services.msc

I hope you will see the below screenshot when you done

Good Luck
