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.

     

    Questions:

     

    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.

     

    Thanks

  • 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:
