Hi
We are in the middle of an 5.5/nt4 upgrade to 2003.  When I run the DSScopescan tool it complains about the name - Company, Inc.  I have tried to rename the display name in 5.5 admin, which I have to CompanyName.  When I run the tool again it still complains, and says the name is Company, Inc.  Are we dead in the water?  I have read posts where they went on and had no problems, but I do not want to continue without any input.....
Help Please - Thanks - Wayne

Also please note, its not just for the Organization name, its also for site names.

Hi Raja,
Thanks for the reply.  I have run forestprep and domainprep, they both finished without errors, that is they both said they completed successfully.  If the generated errors would they inform me, or do I have to dig through a log somewhere?  When I run the DSScopescan tool after I have run forest and domain prep, it still complains about the name - Company, Inc.  The display name was changed to CompanyInc before I ran forest and domain prep.   We only have one site, with two exchange 5.5 servers. Both server names are just 8 regular characters.  Should we continue with setting up the ADC or call Microsoft?  I do not want to hose up AD.

Hi,
I have another question please.  1 of the 5.5 servers is on site, the other 5.5 server is in transit, and we do not have it hooked up to the domain.  Can we proceed with the upgrade if the name issues is not really a problem, on the first server.  Then continue with the second 5.5 server later?
Thanks

Where is the SRS installed, Is it on the same server where you are planning to install exchange. Could be a replication issue.

Hi,
We are bringing up the 2nd server now.  I went through the exchange install logs and they reported forest prep and domain prep installed OK.  We have not installed ADC or exchange yet.
