This may have been asked elsewhere, but I can't find any solutions to where someone was running only one domain controller. I was doing my prep work getting prepared to install Exchange 2007 (transition from Exchange 2003). I have already ran the Setup.com/PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions command sucessfully. When I run the Setup.com/PrepareSchema, I receive the following error message:
Extending Active Directory schema.......................FAILED
An error occurred when executing 'ldifde.exe' to import schema file 'E:\Setup\ServerRoles\Common\Setup\Data\PostExchange2003_schema0.ldf'. Error code: 8206. More details can be found in the rror file 'C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.DOMAIN\Local Settings\Temp\2\ldif.err.
When looking at the error file in the Temp directory, I get the following:
Connecting to "nadc.cayefurniture.com"
Logging in as current user using SSPI
Importing directory from file "E:\Setup\ServerRoles\Common\Setup\Data\PostExchange2003_schema0.ldf"
Entry DN: CN=ms-Exch-ELC-Expiry-Action,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=cayefurniture,DC=com
Add error on line 1: Busy
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."
0 entries modified successfully.
An error has occurred in the program
I have been reading about this being a replication problem, however, we only have one domain controller.
Also to note, I have already installed the following on the x64 Exchange server:
.NET Framework 2.0; .NET Framework 2.0 SP1; Powershell
Also, I have done the following:
Exchange 2003 organization is Native Mode
Exchange 2003 Server running SP2
Active Directory functional level has been raised to Windows 2000 native
Any ideas of what I should do? Surely there wouldn't be any problem in installing Exchange 2007 when you are only running 1 domain controller would there?
If I need to provide any further information, please let me know. Thanks.
