Hello, Do you have NIC teaming? If so, is it possible to temporarily break it and try the Exchange installation again. Thanks,Simon Wu TechNet Community Support

Hello Simon, no, i don't have NIC teaming, but all the Systems are virtual running on VMware vSphere and the NIC is the Standard "VMXNET3" Adapter. Kind Regards, Guido

Guido, Do you have any type of antivirus software installed and is the firewall enabled or disabled?

We fixed the problem! IPv6 doesn't worked right! Our Exchange Server became is't IPv6 Address per DHCP but we can't ping the DC's IPv6 Address. After we changed the IPv6 konfiguration to manuell we can ping the DC's IPv6 Address and the Exchange Installation was successfull. Maybe there is a Bug in the DHCP Client on W2k12, because there was no route entry for the local net in the IPv6 routing table. With the manual entry of the IPv6 Address the route was created. We have checked the IPv6 DHCP release with a Linux client and there was everything all right. Kind Regards, Guido
