  • Invalid Organization name for installing Exchange 2007

    We have a domain with a DC with exchange 2003 on it. We wan't to migrate to exchange 2007 (on a new server). On the new server we installed AD as additional domain controller but when we now want to install Exchange 2007 we receive "Invalid Organization name". We have an "_" in the name.

    Can someone help?

    Surprised that you have an Exchange org with an underscore in it. That must have been an upgrade and it wasn't done correctly. The problem with underscore is highlighted in this KB article:
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=289671

    As far as I am aware there is only one fix if you are on Exchange 2003 native mode and that is a new Forest, new domain so that you can create a new Exchange org.
