LDIFDE Failure; Windows 2000 upgrade to 2003 with Exchange 2000

Discussion in 'Server Setup' started by Steve Halvorson, Feb 7, 2006.

  1. Good day. I get the following failure when I attempt to run the
    inetorgpersonprevent fix on my Windows 2000 domain controller.
    Can you tell me what could be causing this?
    Connecting to "SHARK.domainname.net"
    Logging in as current user using SSPI
    Importing directory from file "inetorgpersonprevent.ldf"
    Loading entries

    1: CN=ms-Exch-Assistant-Name,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=domainname,DC=net
    Entry DN:
    CN=ms-Exch-Assistant-Name,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=domainname,DC=net
    change: modify
    Attribute 0) LDAPDisplayName:msExchAssistantName



    Add error on line 1: Busy

    The server side error is "The role owner attribute could not be read."

    0 entries modified successfully.

    An error has occurred in the program

  2. Hello Steve,

    Thank you for posting.

    According to my experience, this issue may be caused by errors of FSMOs.
    Please try following steps to narrow down the root cause of this problem:
    1. Install Support tools in Windows server CD-Rom and run "netdom query
    FSMO". Then we can verify if all the FSMOs are configured correctly.
    2. Logon to the Schema master with administrators and schema admins
    privileges and verify if update schema check box is checked.
    (run "regsvr32 schmmgmt.dll"->run "mmc"->add a snap-in "Active Directory
    schema"->right click "Active Directory schema" in left panel->click
    operations master->select "The schema may be modified on this domain
    controller")
    3. Run ldifde command again.

    If the problem persists, please collect the MPS report on the DC and send
    the CAB file to me. My email address is:

  3. Hello John,

    I am sending you the CAB file - Unfortunately i get the same errors after
    applying the change to the schema master. Thanks for your assistance.

  4. Hi Steve,

    I have received your mail. Now I am checking the report. Due to the
    complexity of this issue, I need some time to do further research. I will
    let you know my findings ASAP. Thank you for your patience.

  5. Hi Steve,

    I have analyzed the MPS report. And I found that a few 13508 warnings in
    FRS event log. This event indicates potential problem about AD replication.
    According to my experience, replication failure may cause this issue. So I
    need to confirm following things:
    1. The DC "king.preferredcredit.net" is still working in your network,
    isn't it?
    2. If king.preferredcredit.net is still working, please check the SRV
    records created by king.
    How to Verify the Creation of SRV Records for a Domain Controller
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=241515
    3. I found the event occurred on 12/18/2005 firstly. Could you remember
    what operation was taken on that day?

    If there was another DC available, I suggest you transfer Schema master
    role to the server. Then try to rerun ldifde command.
    For details, please refer to the KB article:
    How to view and transfer FSMO roles in the graphical user interface

  6. The King server was not replicating. I fixed it and then re ran the
    inetorgpersonprevent procedure and it worked. Thanks for your help
