'Setup failed while installing sub-component Microsoft Exchange Server - Level Objects with error code 0x80072030'

During Step #9 (installing the Exchange 2003 Server) in the exdeploy.exe I get the following error:

'Setup failed while installing sub-component Microsoft Exchange Server - Level Objects with error code 0x80072030'

I found this solution to the error - http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Email_Groupware/Exchange_Server/Q_21543067.html?query=There+is+no+such+object+on+the+server.+exchange+setup&clearTAFilter=true

"Did u run Setup /domainprep before starting?
If u have done that then see if  
Exchange Domain Servers security group has been moved or renamed. "

My question is, where should the Exchange Domain Servers security group be? In Microsoft Exchange System Objects? That is present in AD but it doesn't have a yellow folder icon to the left of it. Instead, the icon is a white page with the "broken-link" box. I'm installing exchange as a domain admin. I am at a loss. I never experienced this error before while installing exchange 2003. Of course, all the installs have been ain a test enviroment and this will be our first live server. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The "Exchange Domain Servers" Security group should be in the users folder.

That white icon you have seems to be this -> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/325966

As for the problem you have, check the above group, also, did you run BOTH "setup /forestprep" and "setup /domainprep" ?  Are you upgrading any windows servers here?

The "Exchange Domain Servers" Security group doens't exist in the users folder but it is in AD.

I ran forestprep during the setup, right before domainprep. It completed without error (as far as I could see) but I am checking the logs now. This is a clean install of exchange 2003 on a clean install of server 2003. No upgrades, just fresh installations.

New domain as well?  Do you have other servers there?

It looks as though forestprep and/or domain prep has failed.  The link above was more-so to show that this can happen when ESM isn't installed (showing that either you have multiple servers there, or that exchange was not installed correctly).

Rerun forestprep and domain prep.  Leave 15 minutes between the two, then reboot it all 15 minutes after that.

not a new domain and there are other servers present. This is not a DC. I actuallly ran Forestprep and waited 30 minutes for replication and then ran domainprep but domainprep still gives me "Setup failed while installing sub-component Microsoft Exchange Server - Level Objects with error code 0x80072030". You're not referring to adprep /forestprep and adprep /domainprep, are you? I ran setup /forestprep and setup /domainprep.

You shouldn't need the adprep versions - that is only for adding later versioned domain controllers.

The problem is definitely the fact that the Exchange Domain Servers group is not in the users folder - you need to find it and move it back there.

That would have been real handy 3 hours ago :)

Try the above KB, it should go through.  Had I known there was 5.5, I probably wouldn't have commented on this Question, I didn't know much about 5.5 when it was around, and have forgotten what I did know.

I don't believe. I searched through the MS KB and couldn't find anything and you found it right away. That was it, you were right with the groups!
I'm glad I didn't mention 5.5 or I might still be trying to figure it out.
Thank you very much.
