    Hi all,

    I want to install latest update of Exchange Server 2016 CU 6 on Windows Server 2016 but I failed before to install Exchange Server CU 4 on this computer. I want to remove the CU 4 but it failed, too.

    I have tried the following so far.

    -Tried removing from Control Panel

    -Tried removing using PowerShell

    setup.exe /m:uninstall /Iacceptexchangeserverlicensterms

    Please help.

    Thank you,
    Karim

        I guess the system is messed up. You can only try to manually remove the remnants of the failed installation. Search the file system and the registry and remove all Exchange-related folders. Of course, this is procedure is very cumbersome. It is probably easier to start with a fresh Windows Server 2016 installation.

          Hi Michael,

          Yes, I went for fresh Windows Server 2016 installation.

          Thank you

      Yes, always better to start with a fresh install even if it is a test environment. If you later run into problems, you can be sure that not some old configurations are the culprit.
