AD Scheme Prep Failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All - I'm getting "The Server is not operational" error (code [0x8007203A]). OCS is installed on a 2003 server, added into domain and able to talk to  that fine.




    1) Does thos error suggest anything wrong with AD server itself or the OCS server. My guess is it is talking about OCS server.

    2) Currently, I'm using AD installed on a separate machine (Native mode) that is 2000 server with SP4. Should I try having AD installaed on the same machine as OCS?


    I'm re-posting this since I didn't get any response on this earlier.

  • Check to make sure the schema master is accessible.  I have seen similar issues in two instances - one in which the schema master had been decommissioned but the role had not been moved and one in which the schema master was in a DR location and not accessible over the network.  Here is an article that describes how to find your schema master:
