Problem with installing Exchange 2007

By Dave_Hornick ·
While installing Exchange on a DC, Win server 2008; (it is a virtual machine), I get to readiness checks, it fails the Hub Transport Role Prerequisite. Error: could not find any global catalog in forest.... and: cannot find at least one global catalog server running windows server 2003 sp1, or later... The server is a GC server in AD sites and services.

Have you got Exchange SP1 ?

You need a slipstreamed Exchange 2007SP1 disk to install onto a 2008 server.

As for putting it onto a DC, that is really not supported and I can't say I've ever done it or would contemplate doing it.

thank you neil, I guess we should install Exchange on a separate box. It is trial version of Exchange; and we are setting up a test server for zenprise.
