exchange 2003 install issues
I'm trying to install exchange server 2003 on a brand new machine and
encounter many problems. Because this is the first time I'm doing it,
maybe I'm not doing it right.
Here's the background.
This company has a local domain controller running server 2000. This
DC does not have a DNS entry for the outside world and everything is
set to use internal IP addresses (192.168.2.1-100). As far as I know,
this DC is working fine. Employees using their worstations can log in
to the domain fine. Let's just say that this DC name is
company.local. This DC also has a DNS server.
I want to set up an Exchange Server 2003 on a Server 2003 machine.
After I install the OS, the machine can join the DC with no problem.
I then set the TCP/IP (static internal IP, IP for the DNS, etc.). I
want to set up this exchange server with the domain newcompany.com,
so people's email addresses would be employee@n... (is this
possible since the domain name is different than the one on the DC?)
I then try to run the ForestPrep from the exchange server machine and
in the middle of the process, I keep getting this error message:
"Setup failed while installing sub-component Microsoft Active
Directory schema update with error code 0xC103798A ....."
I try to browse the web about this error and all suggestions point
that there is some DNS issues. Using netdiag, I'm not sure if I can
point anything wrong with the DNS setting, or maybe I'm just not
smart enough to point if there's anything wrong. On the Exchange
server machine, I have inserted the internal IP from the DC for the
TCP/IP setting. And on the DNS server, I can see a host entry for the
exchange server machine with the correct IP address. WINS server is
OK too according to netdiag. I can PING both machines fine using the
names. Basically I'm stuck.
Help please if you have any suggestions.
