    You ideally should run it on the DC with the Schema Master role. Have you just got the 1 domain? If so, when I carried out my transition from Exchange 2k3 to 2k7, I let the Exchange installation disk carry out the AD Prep during setup.

      You can just run the setup process to prepare AD and modify the schema, this will also take care of /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions if you have any legacy exchange servers in the organisation.

      If you have multiple AD domains you can run /prepareAD in the same site as schema master and then /preparealldomains.
