I am trying to upgrade a 2000 domain to a 2008 domain. I am running the adprep off the Server 2008 disk and I am running into a problem.
I am getting the usual Schema conflict with Exchange so I am running the the  inetorgpersonprevent command and I am getting the followint error:

Importing directory from file "inetorgpersonprevent.ldf"
Loading entries
1: CN=ms-Exch-Assistant-Name,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,dc=fbcadmin,dc=com

Add error on line 1: Referral
The server side error is "A referral was returned from the server."
0 entries modified successfully.
An error has occurred in the program

I see the error, it should read CN=msExchAssistantName,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,dc=fbcadmin,dcom
but I don't know how to fix it.
I have read so many MS Technet articles, I have probably read the answer but suffering from multiplewordburnout. Everything is runniong together.
Is there a simple fix that I am overlooking?
