The srs contains no home-mdb

I just installed Exchange 2003 on a (new) Windows 2003 server. Ultimately I
wish to move users from Exchange 5.5 on an NT server (and decommission that
box).

After the Exchange installation, the e2kdsinteg.log file shows the following
 errors:
"The srs contains no home-mdb (homeMdb"
"The srs contains no home-mta (homeMta)"
"The public mdb contains no home-mta (homeMta)"
"The system attendant contains no home-mdb (homeMdb)"
"The system attendant contains no home-mta (homeMta)"

I am able to create a new mailbox, but am not able to move anyone over from the old server. When I attempt to move someone, the fields for the new server and location of the new mailbox store are grayed out and not available.

I'm guessing that there is some sort of issue with the synchronization between the Exchange 5.5 and 2003 servers, but..???

I can't find any useful info on the errors above. Can anyone shed some light?

Two questions:

1 In your example, is "Alex3" the name of your exchange server?

2) Where do I find ADSIedit?
