Hi,

Are the DC's all 64 bit? Can you confirm that the service pack of the Exchange media that was used to upgrade the schema is the same level of the prepareAD command.

Have you review this - http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/exchangesvrgeneral/thread/5c129f9c-7e46-4465-b8fe-c2fc80f90262

The user account from which you are running the PrepareAD switch into child Domain, needs to have Exchange full administrator rights in your root domain. Can you verify if you have the same rights ?

You need to be a member of Enterprise and Schema Admin Group.

You should run it on the schema master itself.

to find the schema master run : netdom query FSMO.
