Have you checked from the adsiedit do you have the following : CN=Exchange Servers\0ADEL:7dce01b7-ffab-4949-a080-e4a470240411 under deleted objects if so then i would appreciate if you try to analyze why it has came to that folder and if it is deleted one..
then take the system state backup first and then delete it

Hi I am facing problems of installing Exchange 2007 in multi domain environment. When I run the readiness check, the error is saying that I don't have window 2003 Sp1 in some child domains. I am not able to proceed the next step. Actually my domain have a lot of child domains and I am not able to track which domain does not have window 2003 SP1. Some domains are still window 2000.
My questions is whether I can run the setup/pl and specify the domains which have window 2003 SP1 domain controller in multi domains environments.
appreciate any advise.

You cannot install E2k7 until and unless you have all the child domain having 1 W2k3 SP1 DC. That was the problem with E2k7 RTM. However, the issue has been resolved in E2k7 Sp1. So, i would suggest wait until SP1 is released if u want to install E2k7 without upgrading all child domains with w2k3 sp1 dc.
