Exchange 2013 Installation – restart pending

by on Jun.16, 2014, under Exchange 2010, Exchange 2013, Exchange Server, Knowledgebase, Server-Plattformen

Möchte man einen Exchange 2013 installieren, kann folgende Meldung auftauchen:

<There is a pending reboot from a previous installation of Windows Server role or feature. Please restart the computer and then run Setup again. >

Dieses Fehler taucht schon seit sicherlich Exchange 2010 häufig auf. Folgendes findet man auf dem Technet:

PROBLEM

The Exchange Server 2013 setup fails at the readiness checks with the following error:

There is a pending reboot from a previous installation of Windows Server role or feature. Please restart the computer and then run Setup again.

The problem remains even after several restart attempts and setup is not able to continue.

CAUSE

The Exchange Server Setup reads several registry keys to determine whether a system restart is required after a previous installation of a server component, application or hotfix.

If there is anything wrong there, the Exchange setup will report that a restart is needed and will not continue.

 

In regards to those checks, the following  3 cases are possible:

 

CASE 1

The registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\UpdateExeVolatile  does not exist. This is a typical situation on a fresh Windows Server 2012 installation.

SOLUTION

Using registry editor, create the key and set its value to 0.

 

CASE 2

The registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\UpdateExeVolatile exists, but the value is set to a value other than 0.

SOLUTION

Using the registry editor set the value of the UpdateExeVolatile to 0.

CASE 3

The registriy key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\PendingFileRenameOperations contains any values.

SOLUTION

Delete any values existing under the PendingFileRenameOperations key.
