When you try to set up Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 on a Hyper-V virtual machine, the setup process may fail. Additionally, you receive the following error message:

"An error occurred with error code '2147504141' and message 'The property cannot be found in the cache.'"

This problem occurs because the guest virtual machine is set to a different time zone than the physical machine. Therefore, the Hyper-V time synchronization on the virtual domain controllers makes the Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI) cache invalid.

To resolve this problem, disable time synchronization in the Hyper-V Manager console. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Open the Hyper-V Manager console.
  2. Right-click the virtual machine on which you want to install Exchange Server 2010, and then click Settings.
  3. On the Settings tab, click the Management section, and then click Integration Services.
  4. Click to clear the Time synchronization check box, and then click OK.
  5. Install Exchange Server 2010 on the virtual machine.
