Error extending Schema from 2000 to 2008 due to exchange
Posted on 2010-01-05
I'm currently trying to upgrade our network from server 2000 to server 2008. I currently have one server that functions as the domain controller and also hosts exchange server 2000. when i try running forestprep I was greeted with the error "Adprep was unable to extend the schema.
There is a schema conflict with Exchange 2000. The schema is not upgraded.
The schema conflict must be resolved before running adprep. Resolve the schema c
onflict, allow the change to replicate between all replication partners, and the
n run Adprep. For information on resolving the conflict, see Microsoft Knowledge
Base article Q325379."
I followed the steps in the KB particularly scenario 2 , however while trying to run the inetorgpersonprevent.ldf file I get the following error
"Connecting to "servername".
Logging in as current user using SSPI
Importing directory from file "inetorgpersonprevent.ldf"
Error occured during initialization
File operation failure
0 entries modified successfully.
An error has occurred in the program"
Here's what i have in the inetorgpersonprevent.ldf file
I've checked to make sure that there are no white spaces and there is an extra line after the last "-".
The file is saved as a Unicode File.
I have no errors when I run DCDiag.
No errors show in the Event Viewer
