I'm trying to introduce Exchange STD 2010 on a Windows 2003 SBS environment so I can decommission the old server, however upon trying to install exchange 2010 I can't pass the error message attached here, can someone help me please? I did change exchange 2003 sbs to native mode, did I do something wrong? Is this error related to this change?

One of the best guides there is for doing what you are trying to do can be found here.

It looks like the schema upgrade has not been completed.

Are you installing Exchange 2010 onto a different server or trying to install it on the SBS 2003 server itself as an upgrade?

If the latter, I don't believe you can upgrade the version of exchange on an SBS server directly as it's part of the license and requires purchasing a new server/OS to effectively upgrade.

If it's on a new/separate server then as noted above it may be the schema that needs updating first.

It's being installed on a new windows 2008 server, where would I go to verify the schema?

As per the detailed instructions in the link i provided you above....

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

None of that worked, it only worked once I had SP2 installed.
