Exchange 2003 in 2008 Domain

Hello - we currently are running an Exchange 2000 box (server 2000 OS) in a domain that we upgraded last year from AD2000 to AD2008.  We will be installing a new 2003 Server with 2003 Exchange.  As I'm going through this in a lab environment I am trying to perform the setup /forestprep and setup /domainprep as I was instructed.  However, when running the setup/forestprep on my 2008 box (AD controller) I get the following error:

Microsoft Active Directy -Exchange Extension
"The specified module could not be found'
Facility: win32
ID No: C007007e
MS Acctive Directory Exchange Connection.

I've searched for this error but have not found any solutions that seem to work.  Any ideas?  I have only tried this in my lab environment - have not tried on the actual 2008 AD box.  

Thanks

Is the 2008 box 64bit?
If so Exchange 2003 is not supported on 64bit which is why the command will not run.

No - 32bit.

Exchange 2003 is on a 32bit 2003 Server OS box.  The 2008 OS (DC) is 32 bit.

Are you trying to run the forestprep on the 2008 server?

You need to do it from the 2003 server.

Exchange 2003 is not supported on 2008 so i suspect that is why you are getting this message

Yes - I was attempting to run it fromt he 2008 server.  I was able to run both (/forestprep & /domainprep) successfully from the 2003 box in my lab environment.  

Question though - this is ok even though my 2003 is only a member server and not a dc?

Should be fine as long as you run it with a user that has access to modify the schema.

Did it say it ran sucessfully?
