    However, i can't seem to prep it for exchange 2003... i keep getting weird error messages when i run it from the exchange 2k3 disk.

    I've tried running adprep from the sources folder on my windows 2008 cd but to no avial.
    Here's the message im getting during the prep process



    Would appreciate your input on this.

    Thank you very much,

      While you cannot install Exchange 2007 RTM on Windows Server 2008, Exchange 2007 RTM will be supported with Windows Server 2008 RTM domain controllers. Exchange 2003 Service Pack 2 will be similarly supported: Exchange 2003 cannot be installed on Windows Server 2008, but will be supported with Windows Server 2008 domain controllers.

        If you are trying to prep to install Exchange 2003 on a Windows 2003 server, then you need to run prep from that same server.
        However if you are going to try and install Exchange 2003 on Windows 2008, then that is not supported. In much the same way that Exchange 2000 wasn't supported on Windows 2003.

            You should be able to prep the domain from a Windows 2003 member server.
