I am trying to configure a Management Agent (MA) for Global Address List (GAL) sync in FIM 2010. I cannot move to the next step from "Configure GAL" because of an error message saying "It appears this forest is not exchange enabled". Nothing I change on "Configure GAL" step is changing this behavior.
I'am configuring a standalone test lab. I have a Windows 2008 R2 x64 Server, promoted to a DC and SQL 2008 SP1 installed, DNS is also running locally. I have tried to install Exchange 2010 and 2007, but there is no difference.
AD MA works fine.
Any ideas what did I screw up?
@Sam pointed out that i might actually did not install exchange, so I did it again now carefully reading messages. I have went through all the prerequisites and have an all green installation no even warnings. Oh man, it is not a straight forward setup.
It did not help, still the same effect, but I have noticed new message box "The LDAP service is unavailable" when entering the "Configure GAL" step. I can configure AD MA without errors and run sync on that, so LDAP should run ok.
I have used AD MA with Exchange enabled on "Extensions" setup step. Works ok, provisions contact and they are seen in GAL... while GAL MA has the same problems. Any thoughts?
