Hello Dear,

I tried to install Exchange Server 2016 CU 20 on windows server 2019 (up-to-date) and I have this error :

The following error was generated when "$error.Clear();
if (Get-Service MpsSvc* | ?{$_.Name -eq 'MpsSvc'})
Set-Service MpsSvc -StartupType Automatic
Start-SetupService -ServiceName MpsSvc
" was run: "Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.ServiceCommandException: Service 'Windows Defender Firewall (MpsSvc)' cannot be configured due to the following error: Access is denied ---> System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: Access is denied
--- End of inner exception stack trace ---".

Note: I tried to disable windows firewall and defender and I have the same issue

can you support me please ?

    According to the official document below, it's not supported to install Exchange 2016 on Windows server 2019, so you would have to install it on the supported OS like Windows server 2016 :
