Migration from Exchange 2003 to 2010. FFL IS set at 2003. Error at Setup ... Forrest NOT set at 2003 .

Hi Guys,

Got a weird problem.  

Migrating from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 to achieve a co-exisiting situation on the domain.  However, I am hitting a bit of a problem.  My Domains and Trusts prog. states my Forrest Functional Level is 2003 -  I have a minimum spec of Ent. Servers of 2003 SP2 on the domain.  However, when I run :  setup /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions on the new proposed EXCH 2010 server ... I get an error stating that the Forrest Functional Level needs to be at 2003  ... which it is.   Anyone came across this before.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Are you sure you have raised BOTH Domain level AND Forest level to 2003?
Use the following to check.

Hi,

Yes, Both Domain and Forrest are indicating "Windows Server 2003".

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

Hi,

Thanks for your email.

Ran ADSIedit

Domain was set properly at 2.  However, the Forrest was set at 0.  Have changed to 2 and ran the setup /prep.  again.

Working fine now.  Obvious blip when the Forrest was originally changed.

Thanks
