Dear ALL:
  I have a very clearly windows 2003 server  ,its means no other applications , but i setup the Active Directory , and installed some services , for example : IIS , Message Quenuing , SMTP ,NNTP , ASP.NET , Net Framwork , and DCdiag ,NETdiag Tools
   But , i got a problem when i setup the exchang 2003 server on this windows 2003 server; The problems is , the NAME of the exchange System Manager is a set of number and chars , not my domain name
   And when i go to the Exchange server --->System Manager , i found the "Administrative Groups"is empty ; So , i go to the properties of the "System Manager" , i found the checkbox of "Display the Exchange Administrative Group" is gray , it can not be selected ! Very Strange !
    Anybody can help me ?

This is the result of a failed installation somewhere along the line.

What you need to do is completely uninstall exchange from the server, setup.exe /uninstall

then completely remove the organization from AD, (setup.exe /removeorg)  

replicate your domain controllers (AD Sites & Services)

run Forestprep & Domain Prep again and Finally Exchange setup. If either the Domain Prep / Setup fails you will need to either force AD Replication or wait until replication takes place before continuing.

Ok, Hold the horses there. No need to reinstall the Windows server - the problem is with the Organization registration in AD.

if you run exchange setup.exe on the exchange server with the /uninstall switch, it should completely remove the exchange installation from that server. having done that, on your schema master (usually the first DC that was installed on the network) run the exchange setup utility using the /removeorg switch to clean up AD.

to run these commands goto

Start > Run
x:\setup\i386\setup.exe /uninstall
x:\setup\i386\setup.exe /removeorg
(where x is the CD/DVD Rom drive letter)

To replicate AD follow the instructions at the following URL: http://www.windowsnetworking.com/kbase/WindowsTips/Windows2003/AdminTips/ActiveDirectory/ForcingActiveDirectoryReplication.html

once you have uninstalled exchange and removed the org from AD, you can then run forest prep, domain prep and setup again.
