Exchange 2007 installation problems

I'm trying to install exchange 2007 on server 2008 in an existing 2000 native domain. All my FSMO roles have been moved to server 2003, I have one 2000 DC still existing.
I pass all the exchange prereqs but fail during the install. below is from the ldif.log file.

Connecting to "FloridaPDC.esidedom.local"

Logging in as current user using SSPI

Importing directory from file "F:\Setup\ServerRoles\Common\Setup\Data\PostWindows2003_schema0.ldf"

Loading entries
1: CN=ms-Exch-Access-Control-Map,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=esidedom,DC=local
Entry DN: CN=ms-Exch-Access-Control-Map,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=esidedom,DC=local
Add error on entry starting on line 1: Busy

The server side error is: 0x21a2 The FSMO role ownership could not be verified because its directory partition has not replicated successfully with atleast one replication partner.

The extended server error is:

000021A2: SvcErr: DSID-030A09F3, problem 5001 (BUSY), data 0
Is the 2000 dc the problem,,,

If they are not replicating I would rip out the 2000 server. No replication is a major issue and considering the age of the OS, I would remove it.
You have moved the GC function as well to the Windows 2003 servers ?

No, Floridapdc is the 2003 DC ( also has all the FSMO roles)  I ran the dcdiag utility and lots of errors between the 2003 server and the 2000 server.. the errors imply that the 2 DCs are not replicating..

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Is your 2003 server running at least Service Pack 1?  In order for you to run Exchange 2007 at least one domain controller must be running server 2003 SP1 or later.

The 2003 Server is R2, I plan to demote the last 2000 server Tuesday and cleanup AD, I'll report back then... Thanks..

Resolved by removing the 200 DC
