[This topic is intended to address a specific issue called out by the Exchange Server Analyzer Tool. You should apply it only to systems that have had the Exchange Server Analyzer Tool run against them and are experiencing that specific issue. The Exchange Server Analyzer Tool, available as a free download, remotely collects configuration data from each server in the topology and automatically analyzes the data. The resulting report details important configuration issues, potential problems, and nondefault product settings. By following these recommendations, you can achieve better performance, scalability, reliability, and uptime.

Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 setup cannot continue because the target path for the Exchange binary files does not match the existing Exchange install path on other cluster nodes.

Exchange Server 2007 requires that nodes of the same cluster have consistent target install paths for the Exchange binary files.

To resolve this issue, use a target install path for the Exchange binary files that is consistent across all nodes of the cluster.
