Exchange 2003/5.5 Problem

By jeff.toates ·
I have an Exchange 5.5 site and I am currently in the process of migrating to
2003. I have my first Exchange 2003 server setup coexisting with Exchange
5.5 in the Exchange 5.5 Site. I am trying to setup an additional Exchange
2003 Server (Cluster) in the 5.5 Site. When I start the setup and after it
asks me if I agree with the licensing agreement, it asks me to supply Service
account information for my 5.5 Exchange site, but the userame and domain are
grey'd out and only the password box is available. If I select next then an
error dialog pops up telling me that I have to select a valid account.
Anyone ever had this problem before?

I'm sure that you done the basics, but just double checking.
have a windows AD domain in place
have adc 2k3 connector in place between 5.5 and ad
use different port for LDAP as 389 used for 5.5 currently - change to anything (i would use 1389)
restart exch sys attendant
-exchange folder
-adc services
-adc tools
-set portto 1389 (or what you chose for ldap)
-run /run (user accts vs mailbox)
-site details - acct
-specify server (port details eg.1389)
-finish do twice
-run connection agreement

then install exch2k3
