Hi Everyone,
I am in the process of trying to install a new Exchange 2007 machine in a dev environment on a Windows Server 2008 SP2 computer which is also a Domain Controller. I know that this is not recommended but due to limited resources there was little other choice.

After reading up on Exchange 2007 I have attempted to prepare the 2008 AD domain for the installation of the Exchange Server by running the setup /PrepareSchema or setup /ps command but the command never seems to be found and I get the following error message?

C:\Windows\system32> /ps
'' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Is there some other component that I need to install or is the script located in another area.

Any advice or assistance in helping me resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated.
