  • Install 2007 ENT on Server 2003 Standard with Forest/Domain 2008 environment

    Hello there,

    I have a scenario properly noone have.

    I am trying to install Exchange 2007 ENT on Server 2003 Standard (SP2) box in 2008 Forest/domain environment. Everytime i run

    Setup.com /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions

    I got an error " Cannot find at least one domain controller running Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 or later in the Domain 'DC=local,Dc.net'

    Question: Is it possible? What should i do?

    I know that if i install it in Server 2008 ENT, it will work for sure but I just want to try, if this possible. I'm curious.

    Thanks,
    P2nd

    Are you actually transitioning from Exchange 200x?

      Thx Andy - Yes, i'm trying to migrate Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007. In term of DNS, i have migrated them from Server 2003 STD to Server 2008 ENT and everything went good.

        Possibly a silly question but I assume your sites and services is all setup with the correct IP addresses?

            I assume you mean 2008 as you have a 2008 forest/domain according to the first post?
            cheers

              yes, i just install another 2K3 Standard (not 2008 )as a DC just to see if Exchange 2007 detect it.

              Yes, it did, i able to go on to first command (setup.com /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions) then i stuck again when i run "setup.com /PrepareSchema" i got error There was an error when executing 'ldifde.exe' to import schema file 'D:\Setup\ServerRoles\Common\Setup\Data\PostWindow s2003_schema0.ldf'. Error code: 8206. More details can be found in the error file 'C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.%domainname%\Local Settings\Temp\1\ldif.err'

              -- will try again....

                If your forest and domain are set to 2008 native then you can't install a 2003 DC anymore I'm afraid.

                  I did it. So that error came up, i Restart ADDS service on Server 2008 and try again. It works till the end...i'll start the actual installation tomorrow. Hope it help someone here too.

                  Thanks for you ideas and suggestion Andy.
                  Cheers mate.
