Hi Everyone

I am trying to upgrade my Windows Server 200r R2 SP1 with Exchange 2010 SP1to Exchange 2010 SP3 to get it ready for coexistance with Exchange 2013

Ive downloaded Exchange 2010 SP3 and when I try to install it I get the following error

Summary: 15 item(s). 0 succeeded, 1 failed.
Elapsed time: 00:00:00

Organization Preparation

Error:
The following error was generated when "$error.Clear();
      install-ExchangeSchema -LdapFileName ($roleInstallPath + "Setup\Data\"+$RoleSchemaPrefix + "schema0.ldf")

" was run: "There was an error while running 'ldifde.exe' to import the schema file 'C:\Windows\Temp\ExchangeSetup\Setup\Data\PostExchange2003_schema0.ldf'. The error code is: 8224. More details can be found in the error file: 'C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Temp\2\ldif.err'".

Elapsed Time: 00:00:00

Ive had a read of the other post in Experts Exchange about this and this server was a brand new install. It was never upgraded from an older version. There is another DC on the domain however
I also ran Exchange Server Best Practises Analyzer and the only errors I got were Certificate SAN mismatch errors

Hi,

It looks like failure is happening while extending schema. Please check the account you are using is member of Enterprise Admins and Schema Admins group. You could try extend schema part manually be executing the following commands from cmd. This requires you need to browse to the location setup.exe in install media.

Setup /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions
Setup /PrepareSchema
Setup /PrepareAD /OrganizationName:"Org Name"

This error could be because of a corrupted install media. Could you please try with a fresh copy of installation media?

a couple things...

1) try running those commands on the schema master

2) make sure you have no replication issues between your domain controllers; output from dcdiag would help

SreRaj got me to the solution by having a look at the error log. Which in turn fixed the issue for me. Seth was correct about the replication issues with the other DC. That is why it wasnt working. Problem solved
