Your problem basically has to do with space. Although you have specified
that the installation should be done on another drive a lot of files are
still copied on the system drive.

Your key to making this installation work is freeing up space on the
system drive, alternatively since you have about 23gb of free space on
the other partition, you could look at using a product like partition
magic to extend the partition size so that you can have more space on
the system drive.

The last alternative will be to fire up exchange on another machine on
the domain. This option could be considered since you do not yet have
any exchange data.

Subject: [exchangelist] Failed Exchange 2003 setup part II

This is an update to a previous post. Basically I have tried to install
Exchange 2003 on a Windows 2000 server running sp4.

All the prerequisites have been met and dcdiag and netdiag didn't throw
any errors. This is the only server on the domain.

When first installed forestprep and domainprep ran without error. The
next chain of events is a bit hazy as it was late at night, but I think
the setup failed complaining of a lack of disk space. Disk space on the
system drive was not high about 500mb, but I was installing onto E:. 

Only 3 services (info store, mta stacks and system attendant) are
installed and there are no menu items for Exchange on the start menu.
Some directories such as mdbdata are missing and there is no priv1 or
pub1 files to be seen!

If I run the install again forestprep and domainprep run fine and the
final setup claims it needs 1mb and then completes without error.

If I run it with the disaster recovery option I get the error outlined
in the previous post i.e.
"Setup failed while installing-sub component information store service
with error code 0x80072030 (please consult the installation logs for a
detailed description) You may cancel the setup or try the failed step

and the Exchange log has the following entries

[14:46:24]  CAtomMDB::ScTakeAllStoresOffline
           Error code 0X80072030 (8240): There is no such object on the
[14:46:24]  CAtomMDB::ScForklift
           Error code 0X80072030 (8240): There is no such object on the

           Error code 0X80072030 (8240): There is no such object on the

I guess this is because there are no databases to recover. I can't seem
to uninstall it and can't think of any other options to try.
