I tried to apply SP3 for my Exchange 2007 but before doing that I have to update the schema and Active Directory on my DC first.  Then I initiate the following command to start my schemes update but got error. (I forgot the exact error message but it show something missing on the 64 bit Windows 2008 R2 server)

setup /PrepareSchema

I ran this command on a 64 bit Windows 2008 R2 server but this is not a domain controller, I ran on it because I download a 64 bit version of Exchange 2007 SP3 therefore I just picked this member server and want to update my schema.  Actually, all my domain controller of Windows 2008 are 32-bit.

I have 2 locations (loc 1 and loc 2), here is where servers deployed

Loc 1
DC1 (32 bit Windows Server 2008)
DC2 (32 bit Windows Server 2008)

Loc 2
DC 3 (32 bit Windows Server 2008)
Ex 2007

I want to ask, should I download a 32 bit Ex2K7 SP3 and run the following command on DC2 or DC1 at Loc 1

setup /PrepareSchema
setup /PrepareAD
