The Exchange Server 2010 Setup On Hyper-V Fails With 2147504141 Error

Thanks to Dutch Exchange MVP, Jetze Mellema, for raising this one.  Jetze is doing a lot of Exchange 2010 work over in the Netherlands.  He tweeted today about something he’d seen.

When you try to set up Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 on a Hyper-V Virtual Machine, the setup process may fail. Additionally, you receive the following error message:

"An error occurred with error code ‘2147504141’ and message ‘The property cannot be found in the cache.’"

KB980050 discusses the solution:

To resolve this problem, disable time synchronization in the Hyper-V Manager console. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Hyper-V Manager console.
  2. Locate and Right-click the virtual machine on which you want to install Exchange Server 2010, and then click Settings.
  3. Click the Management section in the Settings tab, and then click Integration Services.
  4. Click to clear the Time synchronization check box, and then click OK.
  5. Install Exchange Server 2010 on the virtual machine.
