ID no: 80004005 Microsoft Active Directory - Exchange Extensions Error

Hello,
   Current environment is W2K3 Forest W/Two domains. Forest and domain functional levels are both W2K3 Server. Forest root domain has and Exchange 2003 organization for e-mail. A child domain was created for authentication, resources, etc. There is no need for E-mail services in the child domain so domainprep for Exchange was not ran. I receive the below error while trying to access user object properties in the child domain using ADUC on an XP workstation w/ESM installed while logged in the forest root domain. I have all appropriate permissions, Enterprise Admin, Domain Admin, etc. I do not want/need to do domain prep on the child forest. Is there any way to prevent the below error?

You still need to prep the domain. There is no getting away from that.

All child domains should be preped if there is Exchange involved.
