Exchange Server is in an inconsistent state



Exchange Server is in an inconsistent state (adding Exchange Server 2013 to Exchange 2010 Environment):

If you want to run Exchange 2013 in an Exchange 2010 Environment, you will need to use Exchange Server 2013 CU2 (Cumulative Update 2). 

I got the error  after one of my installs and after reverting the server to a clean state I still got The same error. Finally I edited ADSI on a domain controller with ADSIEdit.msc

I right Clicked in the root of the tree in the left hand pane (ADSI Edit) and Selected connect to...


Then I Expanded Configuration down to CN=Configuration,DC=DOMAINAME,DC=COM-->CN=Services-->CM=Microsoft Exchange-->CN=<Your EXCHANGE Group Name>-->CN=Exchange Administrative Groups-->CN=Servers


In the Left Pane Select "CN=Servers" and in the Right Pane Delete the server that had a Failed install on it.
