I really don't know how to setup the exchange 2000 server, can anyone help
Current I have a Windows 2000 domain controller, with several Windows NT4
BDC connects to it. And I have an Exchange 5.5 Server (SP3) running on a
Windows 2000 Server machine. This machine hasn't installed the Active
Directory / DNS.
If I want to upgrade the Exchange Server from 5.5 to 2000, what should I do?
I've read through the article on Technet "A Guild to Upgrading from MS
Exchange Server 5.5 to Exchange 2000 Server", and I have even tried
installing a testing machine, let it be a new domain, installing Active
directory and DNS on it, installed an Exchange 5.5 and then upgrade it to
2000, it works fine.
Then I do the "setup" on my real Exchange Server, when I first run the
/forestprep option, it says "A fatal setup error has occured. Look at
C:\WINNT\Temp\eventlog.txt for more information. Cancelling setup."
I study the file and it contains the following entries:
[02/24/01,19:08:44] Setup.exe: ***ERRORLOG EVENT*** : Run() :
RunLoadSetup(), an exception has occured.
[02/24/01,19:08:44] Setup.exe: IsRunningUnattended
So what should I do now?
I am also puzzled by one question. Since my Exchange Server is separated
from my Domain Controller, where should I do the "/forestprep" and
"/domainprep"? Should they be done on the domain controller then I can
continue my upgrade on the Exchange 5.5 Server?
Sorry for the long texts, I would be greatly appreciate if anyone can help
me to get through this :~)
