Error 0xC1037AE6 during ForestPrep on fresh Exchange 2003 install
I am trying to install Exchange 2003 on Server 2003. I started off by installing DNS and Domain Services and the required IIS services (.NET, SMTP, etc). I am installing Exchange from a local directory, C:\delete, so there is no CD involved. When I run "setup.exe /forestprep" and follow along, I end up with this nasty error:
Error code 0XC1037AE6 (31462): Extending the schema in the Active Directory failed. Please consult the error log LDIF.ERR in your TEMP directory.
This is an install-killer error. I have tried the many different techniques around, ensuring I have the right group authority, no spaces in my environment variables, etc.
Here are the groups my user belongs to (as per Active Directory Users and Groups from Administrative Tools):
- Dns Admins
- Domain Admins
- Domain Users
- Enterprise Admins
- Remote Desktop Users
- Schema Admins
Server Manager shows the following Roles:
- Application Roles (and I can access the server web-based administration, so .NET is working fine)
- Domain Controller
- DNS Server
I am uploading the output of the setup log file and the LDIF.ERR in the code section Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can try to get Exchange installed correcty? Thanks in advance for any help or troubleshooting advice you can provide. Exchange-Server-Setup-Progress.log ldif.err.log
