Hi @Labellep-4117,

From the error you shared, it seems that the issue is related to the arbitration Mailbox "MSExchApproval 1f05a927-3be2-4fb9-aa03-b59fe3b56f4c". Please try recreating this system mailbox and rerun the setup to check the result:
1.Open ADUC, remove the SystemMailbox{1f05a927-2390-47c4-81b3-55dc22299269} in CN=Users:
76064-1.png

2.Run the following command from a Windows Command Prompt window:

 <Virtual DVD drive letter>:\Setup.exe /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms /PrepareAD

3.Run the following command in the Exchange Management Shell:

 Get-User -ResultSize Unlimited | where {$_.Name -like "SystemMailbox{1f05a927*"} | Enable-Mailbox -Arbitration
