I would look at my DNS settings. This is most likely the culprit.
Please review the following article for detailed information
Also check to see if you are getting any DSAccess errors in your application
log. How many Global Catalogs do you have? You may want to consider making
another DC a Global Catalog. Both the Global Catalog and the Exchange
Server will require a reboot following this change.
Hope this helps

Trying to install Backoffice and Exchange 5.5 on WIN2k Server.
Server is 2nd domain controller on one domain
Admin rights already set for exchange administrator to entire domain.
Server is member then promoted to 2nd domain controller of domain.
then I install Backoffice and will not install.
Tried readiness kit upgraded Site Server and installed FrontPage.
Server is SP1 already all updates applied prior to install.
Will not install past 55% both on BACKOFFICE and when I try to install only
Exchange 5.5 from 5th CD.
