Is there any chance that you did set up MAIL0 as a DC? Or at least tried to do?

[Replications Check,DATA0] A recent replication attempt failed:
            From MAIL0 to DATA0

Why would there be a replication between MAIL0 and DATA0 if MAIL0 is not recognized as a DC?

Are all your servers in one site?

Ok, so somehow your MAIL0 is still recognized as a DC in AD. Did you run dcpromo to demote the server to a member server already? If yes, it seems you have an orphaned DC object. In that case the following articles should help you:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555846
http://www.petri.co.il/fix_unsuccessful_demotion.htm
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windows2000serv/reskit/distrib/dsbi_add_oywa.mspx

After MAIL0 is completely removed from AD as a DC you should be able to successfully install Exchange.

Good luck!

Dear kirschi,

I found more errors in the event viewer, and i try to do your sugestion , but i wasent abalible to connect .
I think the best it will be to check all my DCs error in order to solve all problems, can you advice the way to do this properly ?
By the way let me tell you , mail0 it was a DC , but today i reinstall the OS , and i delete it from Active Directory in DATA0 in order to joint it again as part of the domain only

now im lost , help please

Thanks in advance

Ok, so I assume you reinstalled OS on MAIL0 without first running dcpromo again to demote the DC. So the links above should get you going for removing the DC info of MAIL0 from AD. You should also remove the MAIL0 from the domain at the moment although it is only a member server. What do you mean by "i wasnt able to connect"? Where did you want to connect to?

by doing :

ntdsutil
metadata cleanup
connections
connect to server servername

all this i don it from DATA1

FYI this the actualy infrastructure :

DATA0 DC
DATA1 DC
MAIL0 only part of the domain

i think i have a main problem about DC , i try it from DATA1 witch its a DC too , but wasent abalible to cnnect dureing the process with "ntdsutil"
im confuse , from where i should do it ? DATA0 ,1 or EMAIL0 ?

I realy will like to clean up all the meas i have with AD in my network , in order to by sure that all its ok.
Please advice me
Thanks in advance

Did you try to set credentials? This may help even if you are logged on as domain admin. Do you have any error message? Maybe in event log when running ntdsutil?
