I'm in the process of migrating/transitioning our existing Exchange 2003 org to Exchange 2010. I've built a new Windows 2008 R2 server that will run all of the roles for Exchange 2010. My problem is that all of my AD/GC servers are running 32-bit Windows 2003 Server SP2. When I try to run setup /PrepareSchema and /PrepareAD on my DC, I get errors because the Exchange 2010 setup is 64-bit. I recall that Exchange 2007 had a 32-bit version that could be used for this step, but Exchange 2010 is only 64-bit.

Does anyone know of a workaround to get my AD schema updated with only having 32-bit versions of Windows 2003?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Ken

There is no 32 bit version of 2010. You can try installing the ADDS tools on the 64 bit server and see if that works (not 100% sure). Otherwise you'll have to runit on a 64 bit DC

Agree 64-bit DC will do it.

the ADPREP folder found on the Server 2008 R2 disc.contains the ADPREP and the ADPREP32.EXE

adprep32.exe /forestprep (Schema Master)
adprep32.exe /domainprep (Infrastructure Master)
adprep32.exe/ gpprep
adprep32.exe/ rodcprep
