Exchange 2013 Recovery Mode

 

After a failed install, or if you encounter an inconsistent state in Exchange that prevents it from starting, you may have to re-install Exchange Server 2013 using recovery mode.

Disable UAC on the Exchange server.

Open PowerShell and navigate to the setup file location.

Execute the following command:

.\setup.exe /m:recoverserver /iacceptexchangeserverlicenseterms

the recoverserver switch will rebuild Exchange using the parameters stored in Active Directory.
