This section contains the answers to the “Can you answer these questions?” sections in this chapter.
Objective 1.1: Prepare the infrastructure for Exchange
You need to update the Windows 2000 Server domain controllers to Windows Server 2003 SP2. If the hardware specifications of these servers do not support this, then you need to demote them to member servers or remove them from the network. You can then raise the domain functional level to Windows Server 2003. By doing this, you in turn raise the forest functional level to Windows Server 2003.
The server running Windows Server 2008 Standard edition with SP2 (x64).
The Setup /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions command.
Setup /PrepareLegacyExchangePermissions, Setup /PrepareLegacyExchange Permissions, Setup /PrepareSchema, Setup /PrepareAD, and Setup /Prepare Domain, in that order.
You issue the dsquery server –hasfsmo schema command.
