Deploy exchange 2003 with x64 domain controllers
Posted on 2009-07-07
I'm looking for a way to deploy an exchange 2003 server in my domain. The problem I'm having occurs while running forestprep on my domain controller:
"Microsoft Exchange Server has a known compatibility issue with this version of Windows. For more information, refer to....."
My domain controller has Windows server 2003 x64 standard edition SP2 installed. I have two backup domain controllers, unfortunately with the exact same configuration. Is there a way to get the schema updates done on a x64 domain controller?
I don't mind running exchange server 2003 on x86, I understand that's the only way. I have a seperate dedicated server ready and awaiting the exchange installation. However, not being able to deploy forestprep and domainprep halts me before I got started... Any help would be greatly appreciated!
