Ok, heres one for you guys.

In our test environment, I am trying to install Exchange 2003 Ent. on a Windows 2003 Ent Server SP1 machine, and it gives me this error when I run the Forest Prep:

Exchange Server 2003 has a known compatibility issue with this version of Windows. For more information, refer to http://go.microsoft....k/?LinkId=37488

What is wrong with this picture? I have installed Exchange on a Windows 2003 Ent Server before, and didnt get this problem. The only difference is that SP1 is installed. Did Microsoft over look something there?

Any thoughts?

It's not an error, but a warning.

Everything is still working. Exch2K3 was released before SP1 for Win2K3 was released. Once you get Exch2K3 installed, install SP1 for it and it should be fine.
