Failure [0xC3EC796C] One or more errors occurred during execution of the wizard; the wizard was unable to complete successfully…

I was setting up OCS 2007 R2 in my lab along with Exchange 2010 and I came across the error above. While installing the OCS 2007 R2, all steps completed successfully except the last one. The last wizard read “Deploy Server Wizard has failed”.

Error0

Clicking “Finish” opens the log file in internet explorer which gave an error code and more explanation for the failure.
