I am assuming that by clicking the checkbox you want to make it so that the schema CAN be modified on this DC...

It was already checked so I unchecked it and rechecked it to activate the OK button and then clicked OK.

However, after doing that it again fails with the exact same error. No permission or the server is too busy. The server CAN'T be too busy...and that probably just means the attempt timed out due to failure of the permissions.

Honestly...until I lay my eyes on a machine running Exchange 2003 I won't believe it CAN actually be installed...:-D

Wow, back to the drawing board - can you set the administrator account (the account that you are logged on with) TEMP path to a folder such as C:\TEMP?

Cheers

Poking around the DC I noticed that it does NOT have the smtp or nntp installed or running.

I am wondering if they are suposed to be running on THAT machine since it is the DC...and not just the local machine where E2k3 is being installed...

Now to figure out how and where to get those installed from...I started with 2003 so 2000 is a little different for me to manage...

Hiya Chris, In order to run ForestPrep and Domain prep you don't need to have the SMTP or NNTP service running on the DC.

Have you had a chance to change the temp path to c:\ temp?

Cheers

Not exactly sure how to set the temp path the c:/temp

Do you mean on the DC or the e2k3 box?

Hiya mate, on the Domain Controller - right click on the "My Computer" and select "Properties" - select the "Advanced" tab and then click on the "Environment Variables" button - in the top box, change both the TEMP and TMP values to c:\temp.

Cheers

A

Yeah...I found it..:) It was the same as all the others..heh...

So the current path is already \localsettings\temp

I just made it c:\temp

Here is a related but at he same time off topic question..BUT...we have Exchange 2007 standard here also. HOWEVER, when I drop the CD in the drive and do the install with it the error comes up saying it doesn't support our processor.

This is a brand new box with Xeon CPU's. Why would e2k7 NOT support that CPU?

M$ is really starting to upset me...this is exactly why I have run linux on my servers for so many years...

Lame...32k7 only supports x64 installs of Server 2003...

How about they lock a few more people out of the ability to use their software...

We just spent $20k on new boxes and then this...heh...wait til the boss get's THAT e-mail...

Hiya Chris I take it that with the new temp path setup has failed as well.

Sure did.

Will exchange 2000 run on server 2003 and possibly update to 2003 ok? I am considering trying to install my personal copy of e2k here and then updating to the e2k3 if it manages to install properly.

I have acces to some local exchange experts that I can possibly pull a favor with...at this point I am just stumped...

Also I can not do much with the DC during business hours and I am the only person that would ever come in after hours to get this job done...pretty lame all the way around...

Hiya Chris, Exchange 2000 will not install on Windows 2003 (see http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=321648) - I am going to look into something for you can will get back to you soon.

Hiya Chris, I have found the following: http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2004/02/11/71405.aspx
(Speaks about the temp path but also mentions a registry key that might be of some use).
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/256184
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/319944 (not sure about this one)
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/255788/EN-US/ (helps with permissions)

Let me know,

I ran a DCDIAG and NETDIAG on the box I am installing the exchange on. Maybe they will give a little insight. I checked the links that you posted here and all of what they point to seems fine. Anyway...here are the dc and net diag logs.

Sorry I was a little vague in the very first post. I think I followed up with enough information though.

Here is the dcdiag.

I did notice some failures in there. I am not familiar with the DCDIAG too much, but I am going to go through it and figure out as much of it as I can.

The netdiag is below also.

Hiya chap, did you at any point have another DC other the one you have, or another site?

In addtion - when you open up Active Directory Sites and Services and expand the list what do you see?

Cheers

This is the first and only DC they have every had. They have a BDC (Back-up DC), but it is no longer on line and all it was used for was a back-up in case this one dies.

I am assuming the 'sites' list is what you are talking about. I have in that list:

Sites>
   default first sites>
      servers>
         06ffcubc
         06ffcudc

There isn't much else in there.

Did the DC and NET diag logs mean anything to you? :)

Yes mate, they did - I think that there is an issue in ad with the old "BDC" (which I am assuming is 06ffcubc)  - you see there is technically no such thing as a BDC in Windows 200x as it operates what is called a multi master environment.

It would seem at the very least the entry for the BDC is still in site and services (which is giving you the replication errors) can you let me know which server is holding you FSMO roles - in particular the schema master? - you can find whom has the schema master role by using the Schema tool that we install when trying to ensure the schema was set to edit - when in the Schema Management Tool right click on the "Active Directory Schema" and then choose operations master.

Cheers

Well the '06ffcubc' is merely a desktop computer that is now actually broken and sits in the corner. It is not in any way shape or form connected to the network.

Can I just delete that entry possibly?

I am heading to lunch, but will be back in roughly an hour to investigate further into the schema arrangement with the network.

Ok mate, be sure that the machine is gone - then yes you can delete it from the replication topology, then on your working domain controller complete the following;

Start->Run

type CMD and then at the command prompt type:

ntdsutil

then type "roles" (no quotation marks) <press enter>

then type "connections" <press enter>

then type "connect to server <servername> (you must use the server name of your DC)

then type "q"

then type "seize schema master"

You will be prompted if this is ok - say yes.

The screen will change with some information - when the process has finished type "quit" the press enter then type "quit" again and press enter.

Try the Exchange installation again.

Cheers

A

Ok...I am back.

I did discuss this with the other person that I work with as to what the BDC box is doing..status wise anyway.

He says it started making noise so they just turned it off and stuck in in a corner...lame...

Anyway..IF in fact I delete it from the whole network will we be able to add it again once the exchange is installed or should I just fire it up and figure out what the 'noise' is...heh.

We are technically required to have a BDC at another site, but they just never got to that point before the thing crapped out.

I would hate to delete it then find we need it...:) If I got it back online and working, though, would that possible sort out the replication error since it is back online and working?
