An error occurred when executing 'ldifde.exe' to import schema file 'C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.JARROWFORMULA\Desktop\E2K7\Setup\ServerRoles\Common\Setup\Data\PostExchange2003_schema0.ldf'. Error code: 8206. More details can be found in the error file 'C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.JARROWFORMULA\Local Settings\Temp\1\ldif.err'.

my existing Exchange 2003 server is running on Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition and so are my DC's
my new Exchange 2007 server is running a fresh installation of Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard x64 Edition (this is my first x64 server in the network).

here is what the log file contained:

Connecting to "primary.jarrowformula.com"

Logging in as current user using SSPI

Importing directory from file "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.JARROWFORMULA\Desktop\E2K7\Setup\ServerRoles\Common\Setup\Data\PostExchange2003_schema0.ldf"

The server side error is "The FSMO role ownership could not be verified because its directory partition has not replicated successfully with atleast one replication partner."

I had an issue when installing my first 2007 server, check to make sure this isn't your issue..


I had done prepareAD and all that stuff from the x86 version of 2007.  Then, I get the x64 version and go to install, but it won't go.  All sorts of strange errors.

The problem?  The x86 version I had was RTM, and the x64 version was SP1...   SP1 requires further schema updates beyond what the RTM version did..

It seems that on of my DC's was not compunicating to my PDC so it was not replicating properly once I took care of the communication issue the installation was able to complete.
