Exchange 2010 installation question.

I have a 2003 domain controller with exchange 2003 as member server. I added a 2008 member server to my network which should run exchange 2010.
My question is on what server I must run

setup /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions
setup /PrepareSchema
setup /PrepareAD

I tried to run it on my FSMO holder but cannot run because its 32 bit.
Please don’t give me any link only want answer.

On the exchange 2010 DVD you will find a 32 bit version of setup, you need to run that on the 2003 server.

To prepare Active Directory for Exchange 2010 we need to do the following:
•      Insert the Exchange 2010 DVD in to the Windows 2008 Server
•      Open a command prompt (Start > Run > CMD)
•      Run D:\setup /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions
•      Run D:\setup /PrepareSchema
•      There is an additional command which is: setup /PrepareAD /OrganizationName: but I am going to let the Exchange Server installation do this part
Hope this helps.

So basically when I run
setup /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions
setup /PrepareSchema
setup /PrepareAD.
On 2008 member server it will automatically connect to AD and do upgrade.
So no need to run it on FSMO holder

You can run this command from any Windows Server 2008 server in the forest.

You must run this command on a computer in the same domain and in the same Active Directory site as the schema master. Setup will make all configuration changes to the schema master to avoid conflicts because of replication latency.

After you run this command, you must wait for the permissions to replicate across your Exchange organization before continuing to the next step. If the permissions haven't replicated, the Recipient Update Service on your Exchange 2003 computers could fail. The amount of time that replication takes depends on your Active Directory site topology.

>> From a Command Prompt window, run one of the following commands:

Run setup /PrepareDomain or setup /pd to prepare the local domain. You don't need to run this in the domain where you ran Step 3. Running setup /PrepareAD prepares the local domain.

Run setup /PrepareDomain:<FQDN of domain you want to prepare> to prepare a specific domain.

Run setup /PrepareAllDomains or setup /pad to prepare all domains in your organization.
