Hi Guys,

             I've successfully installed Exchange Server 2007 coexist with Exchange 2003. Everything was working fine when this new Server started giving error messages.After a reboot hard drive failed. Now on new hard drive I've again installed Server 2003 & installing Exchange 2007.

In the begining received lot of errors but manage to resolve them via ADSIEDIT.MSC console but now I am getting this error while preparing Schema.

tup\ServerRoles\Common\Setup\Data\PostExchange2003_schema6.ldf'. Error code: 8202. More details can be found in the error file 'C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp\ldif.err'

The Exchange Server setup operation did not complete. Visit http://support.micro and enter the Error ID to find more information.

The server side error is "The parameter is incorrect."

Connect to Schema

Double Click on CN=ms-Exch-Resource-Schema
check all these attributes in the schema:

changetype: ntdsSchemaAdd
adminDescription: ms-Exch-Resource-Schema
adminDisplayName: ms-Exch-Resource-Schema
defaultHidingValue: TRUE
defaultSecurityDescriptor: D:S:
governsID: 1.2.840.113556.1.5.7000.62.50047
lDAPDisplayName: msExchResourceSchema
name: ms-Exch-Resource-Schema
objectCategory: CN=Class-Schema,<SchemaContainerDN>
objectClass: classSchema
objectClassCategory: 1
rDNAttID: cn
schemaIdGuid:: EdNJrXyVzUO3zdAFqGir7g==
subClassOf: top
possSuperiors: container
mayContain: msExchResourceLocationSchema
mayContain: msExchResourcePropertySchema

in my case, the mayContain attribute had a DUP entry in it.  remove that DUP entry.  hit ok.  hit ok.  allow the schema time to propigate throughout the directory.
try to install again.
