Hi there, I'm prepping for an Exchange 2010 SP1 upgrade and when running the pre-requisite checker, I get the following error.

Error:
Setup needs to contact the Active Directory schema master but this computer is not in the same Active Directory site as the schema master (GAEDM).

Error:
Setup encountered a problem while validating the state of Active Directory: Exchange organization-level objects have not been created, and setup cannot create them because the local computer is not in the same domain and site as the schema master. Run setup with the /prepareAD parameter on a computer in the domain goauto and site GAEDM, and wait for replication to complete.

This is on the Exchange 2010 server at my DR site. There is a DC at this site as well, so unless I'm crazy I should be able to just transfer FSMO roles for the SP install and then back once it finishes, but I wanted to know if anyone had run into this before I go transferring roles around all willy-nilly.

Hi,

For Exchange 2010 SP1 installation Schema Prepare and Domain Prepare has to be done if not Exchange installation tries to do this during the installation at background. Instead of transferring roles to DR DC server you can run Schema prep & Domain Prep from Active Directory Site where Schema master is placed. Once you have done with Schema prep and domain prep force the replication to your DR site and continue with the Exchange 2010 SP1 installation.

Thanks for the speedy response! I didn't get this error on any of the four mail servers in my primary site though. I imagine that it was just looking for the ability to update schema. Thanks again!
