We are trying to upgrade our Domain Controller to Server 2003 Standard.
We have an Exchange 2000 server on another server that is not a domain controller.
When starting the upgraded we are getting a warning about compatability with Exchange 2000.
Also when running the forest prep command, we get the following error.
Before running adprep, all Windows 2000 domain controllers in the forest should
be upgraded to Windows 2000 Service Pack 1 (SP1) with QFE 265089, or to Windows
2000 SP2 (or later).
QFE 265089 (included in Windows 2000 SP2 and later) is required to prevent poten
tial domain controller corruption.
For more information about preparing your forest and domain see KB article Q3311
61 at http://support.microsoft.com
If ALL your existing Windows 2000 domain controllers meet this requirement, type
C and then press ENTER to continue. Otherwise, type any other key and press ENT
ER to quit.
Adprep was unable to extend the schema.
There is a schema conflict with Exchange 2000. The schema is not upgraded.
The schema conflict must be resolved before running adprep. Resolve the schema c
onflict, allow the change to replicate between all replication partners, and the
n run Adprep. For information on resolving the conflict, see Microsoft Knowledge
Base article Q325379."
What are we going to have to do to complete the domain controller upgrade as well as have our Exchange 2000 server on the new 2003 Active Directory network.
What are the potential problems that can arise from having an Exchange 2000 server on a Server 2003 Active Directory network.
Thanks ahead of time for your help.
