    I am hitting my head against a wall on this one. I have a Windows 2003 server
    that I am trying to make an AD server. The environment that I started with is
    two Windows 2000 AD servers and 1 Exchange 2000 server. The two AD servers
    have the latest service packs along with the Exchange server.

    I ran the ADPREP command on the schema master domain controller. I tried to
    run dcpromo on the Windows 2003 server and ran into many issues with schema
    mismatches that were pointing to the scond domain controller. So, after a
    coule of attempts and going through the Articles on technet about Exchange
    2000, I finally just figured there was something wrong with AD on the second
    server so I demoted it.

    Needless to say, I now have one AD server and when I run dcpromo on the
    Windows 2003 server I still have issues. I tried to see if the schema had the
    mangled descriptors as described in the knowledgebase articles, but all are
    fine. I am getting the following error repeated about 5 times with different
    classes:

    Internal event: The following schema class has a superclass that is not
    valid.

    Class identifier:
    1776484391
    Class name:
    msExchOmaConnector
    Superclass identifier:
    1619603172

    How do I debug this one. I can not find anything on the knowledge base that
    tells me what this means. I am not too sure if I can go through ADSI to
    resolve this, or even how to find this in ADSI. And all of the related errors
    all have to deal with Exchange
    (msExchPublicMDB,msExchProtocolCfgPOPContainer, etc)

    Any ideas out there? This is very strange and is really starting to tick me
    off. I can provide any info you may need if it will help.

    Thanks much

    Dave

    I went through the adprep log files and there are no errors reported. Every
    step show "Successfully Completed". The adprep that I used was with CD which
    is pretty original. Would there be updates to adprep that I do not have?

    I suggest you re-run ADPREP /forestprep and ADPREP /domain prep on your
    remaining DC.
    Then attempt to run DCPROMO on you W2K3 member.
