I am trying to add a 2003 DC to an existing 2000 domain, I am running the ldifde statement to prevent mangled exchange attributes and it keeps failing, I think it is something to do with my syntax, can somebody clarify what my command line should be if the Forest root domain is LONDON.test.co.uk, here is how I input my command line

ldifde -i -f inetorgpersonprevent.ldf -v -c DC=X "dc=LONDON,dc=test,dc=co,dc=uk"

should the actual domain controller be named in the statement?

I beleve you need to extend the schema to add that DC. When i added a 2003 DC to a 2000 domain i dd the following.

Install 2003
Add server to domain
Run forest/domain prep on main DC
Install AD on 2003 pc
Restart exchange 2003 (prevents the error message about schema changes)
Done
