I have a new windows 2008 R2 domain in my forest. I need to run the exchange 2003 /domainprep on that domain; however, I cannot run exch2003 /domainprep on a win 2008 DC. How should I prep this new 2008 domain with exchange 2003 /domainprep....

you cannot run the exchange 2003 domainprep on a windows 2008 domain controller

you need to add a windows 2003 dc to that domain, run the domainprep, and remove the 2003 dc

endital1097, I will try your method, even though that sounds excessive. No other way to run exchange prep on the 2008 domain eh? I am going to be introducing exch 2010 soon. Can I/should I run the exch 2010 exchange domainprep on the win2008 domain? and if so, will add the necessary attributes/security to satisfy the exch 2003 domain prep?

BTW - I ran the exch 2003 domainprep from a workstation (as domain admin) on the 2008 domain, It ran successfully; however, I noticed some of the permissions on the Exchange Enterprise Server group didnt update properly (mainly the write permissions). Is this becouse I didnt run the exch 2003 /domainprep from a Domain controller?

Did you wait for ad replication?  As long as your account had appropriate permissions it should work
