    Here is the problem
    On our DC (one of two) that has all the FSMO rolls and GC are we trying to
    upgrade to w2k3 ent R2 from w2k3 std. I simply put in disk one of R2 and
    starts the upgrade. The warning message I receive is the problem. It says
    that This version of Windows has known capability problems with Exchange
    2003. We have Exchange 2003 Enterprise on another server, but we have
    installed the Exchange administrative tools on the DC that we are trying to
    upgrade. The installation wizard gives us the opportunity to read the details
    and as far as I understand does we not use any of the scenarios that's
    listed. However I must know I am to chicken to continue.

    Best regards zMIMI

  2. Hi,

    You can just safely ignore this warning since you didn't install Exchange
    on this DC.
