Failed to install Snapmanager 7.2 for Exchange


Hi all

I like to install Snapmanager for Exchange on our SMBR VM. On the Exchange Servers the installation succeeds, but failed on the SMBR VM. I used the same users to login and the service account.

I try to install SME 7.2 x64 on a Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard

During the installation I get the following error:
Error 1920.Service (SnapManager Service Service) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services.

In the application log i see the following messages:

The SnapManager Service service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.



Re: Failed to install Snapmanager 7.2 for Exchange




the error




means that SME is not able to find something.

Since you stated that the installation did succeed on the Exchange server i think the missing part on the other server here are the Exchange Management Tools


Accorinding to this (pag 12) the Exchange Management Tools are part of the installation requirments.

Please double check and let us know
