Dear all.

I have a Win2003 Domain with Win2003 R2 32bit servers.

I am installing Exchange 2010 on a Win 2008 Server (obviously 64bit).

I need to prepare the Domain but the ADPrep on the CD is 64 bit only but as I have no 64 bit servers I can't run it.

Other than installing a 64 Bit Win2003 Server and using that, which I really don't want to do how do I proceed?

Run it from the 64-bit server you are going to use for Exchange 2010.  As long as that server is in the same AD Site as the Schema Master it will work.

in the support folder there is 32BIT version of ADprep (adprep32.exe), you need to run this from your existing 32Bit domain controller.

support\adprep\adprep32.exe /forestprep
support\adprep\adprep32.exe /ADprep
The DC you are running forestPrep will replicate the changes to other DC's in your domain name space..


good luck
