Active Directory Schema Prep Failure (Office Communications Server 2007 Trial)
Posted on 2007-10-20
I'm trying to install Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 Standard Edition on a Windows Server 2003 SP2 machine and the very first step, Active Directory Schema Prep, is failing. I get the error "ERROR (0x8007200E): The directory service is busy."
I'm pretty sure I have all the permissions needed to update the schema. The domain controller has Exchange 2007 running on it. Also there is another domain controller which was never turned on and I read somewhere in Google Groups that this may cause a problem so I turned it on and still am getting the same error.
I have tried both the setup.exe deployment wizard (for Office Communications Server 2007 Standard Edition) and command prompt (lcscmd.exe) and both produce the same error message. Have tried running the schema prep on the domain controller as well (rather than the other Windows Server 2003 SP2 machine), same error message. The domain controller is also a Windows Server 2003 SP2 machine, but x64 edition.
Any help would be muchly appreciated.
