"Setup failed while installing sub-components Microsoft Windows AD schema update with error code OxC1037AE6"

Following the error code, have a look at this. Windows 2000 restricts access to the AD schema

make sure the acct you are running fprep and dprep with is a member of the schema admins and domain admins groups.

might also want to check this first:

change: add
Attribute 0) adminDisplayName:Addressing

Ian PriceIT ManagerAuthor Commented:
No not small business - the exchange is on the DC at the moment because is was installed by a pleb. I plan to upgrade the domian to 2003.

By running forestprep = Exchange 2003
                domainprep = Exchange 2003
               forestprep = Window  2003
                domainprep = Windows 2003

Then I will DCPROMO one of the window 2003 member server into the domain and move the global catalog off the exchange box, of I can't do any of that because I can't get forestprep to run :-)

Found the Anwser Kris = I was running ForestPrep from the Exchange service Pack two CD - When I run it from the original Exchange CD it worked first time.

Thanks for you helps - I am awarding you the points for your general assistants.

hmmm. very interesting. it should have worked from the sp2 cd. ideally you always want to run it from the most recent version, but i'm sure you'll be fine. glad to help.
