Hello.

first thank you for taking the time to read. I am installing a new (first) Exchange server 2007 in our new domain. However i keep getting the error of unable to contact Schema Master and server is not in the same site as the Schema Master.

Error:
Setup needs to contact the Active Directory schema master but this computer is not in the same Active Directory domain as the schema master (DC=mydomain,DC=lcl).
Recommended Action: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=30939&l=en&v=ExBPA.3&id=2376fec1-b9ce-44db-beb6-cb9ac4788988

-On the Schema master which is a Chicago site. I was able to run PrepareAD and PrepareSchema; just cannot install Exchange 2007. The Exchange server is in UK.

-So it is one forest with multiple sites. single domain...is that a problem? does each site need its own Schema master....wouldnt think so? perhaps it is a replication issue between Chicago and UK?

- And if i change the Schema master to the DC in UK can i change it back? and what repercussions would that have? and is that a practice that is endorsed?



I am at a loss here...dont know where to go from here....any and all help will be appreciated. Thnx.

I have been able to install exchange in a single forest/domain and multiple sites with no issues. Can you confirm that you are able to ping the Schema master from the new server? Also I would recommend that you run
"DCDiag /S:SchemaMasterServer" from the new server. This is a CMD based utility and you need to install the Windows support tools to run it.

Thank you for the reply.


Yes i can ping the schema master. and ran the dcdiag ...everything passed.


and somehow it is working now... perhaps the AD replication took forever? days?


once i find the answer as to why ...then i will post again..thnx.
