Message: <resource name>: Failed to perform the upgrade of the corresponding objects in the Active Directory.Please check the ‘Exchange Server Setup Progress.log’ file to help diagnose the failure.
   
Explanation

You will receive the following phrase in the Event Description:

An error occurred during the Exchange resource upgrade. Ensure that the administrative group and routing group were not changed after the creation of the Exchange resource.

There are many causes for this error. The cause often has to do with a permissions problem or an Active Directory container problem. The most common causes and their resolutions are listed below.

  • Cause 1 – This behavior can occur if the Active Directory Connections container has been removed from the Exchange Organization in which you have installed an Exchange service pack.
  • Cause 2 – The built-in Exchange groups in the Users container in Active Directory Users and Computers have been moved from their default location.
  • Cause 3 – If there is a 3a 20 07 80 error code in the Description, this resolves to 8007203a: ERROR_DS_SERVER_DOWN #. The server is not operational. This error is usually generated due to problems with DNS and resolving/contacting an Active Directory domain controller.
  • Cause 4 – If the Administrative Group is in mixed mode, an invalid Exchange 5.5 service account/password may cause the issue.
  • Cause 5 – The inheritable permissions have been removed within Active Directory.
  • Cause 6 – The Cluster service account has not been delegated the Exchange Full Administrator role at the Organization level.

Also, check the Exchange Server Setup Progress.log file for further possible causes.

   
User Action
  • Resolution 1 – Either reinstall the Active Directory Connector or manually create the ADC container.
  • Resolution 2 – If the Exchange Domain Servers, Exchange Enterprise Servers or Exchange Services group have been moved to a different organizational unit (OU), move them back to the Users container.
  • Resolution 3 – Resolve DNS and access to a domain controller.
  • Resolution 4 – Set a valid Exchange 5.5 service account/password on the General tab of the Properties of the Administrative Group.
  • Resolution 5 – Use ADSIEdit to reset the “Allow Inheritable Permissions” on, for example, the Exchange Organization object (CN=OrgName object).
  • Resolution 6 – Make sure that the Windows Cluster service account has Exchange Full Administrator at the Organization level and is a member of the local Administrators group on both nodes.
