I try to install 2nd exchange to replace the existing one.  the current server is windows 2003 standard with exchange 2003 enterprise.  When I try to install the second exchange to migrate off the user, install failed and I got error 0x80005000.  I follow the instruction to add addition server.  DCdiag, netdiag pass OK.  I add new server as AD member.  I check public folder and seem OK.  I can't find solution anywhere on google.
Watch Question

on the server, please can you advise if the windows install service is set to disable? or not started?

if it is, set it to manual or automatic then start it. then retry the install of 2003 exch

can you please advise who you are logged on to the server as? is it the enterprise admin?


login name: administrator
member of: administrators, backup operator, domain admins, enterprise admins,  exchange domain servers, exchange services, GP creator owners, OLAP admins, Schema admins

This is the same account used to install first exchange, add new server to domain.


I found the solution from suggestion on another board
the solution is

  1.    Use an Adsieidt to locate the public folder hierarchy objects
in Active Directory. The public folder objects can be found at CN=Configuration, CN=Services, CN=Microsoft Exchange, CN=<OrganizationName>, CN=Administrative Groups, CN=<AdminGroupName>, CN=Folder Hierarchies
   2.      Change the msExchPFTreeType attribute by entering 1 as the new value.
