        Subject: [exchangelist] Account must be valid before continuing install 
msg on Exchange 2000
        I get this error âaccount must be valid before continuingâ when 
trying to
        install Exchange 2000 and have it join in a Exchange 5.5 org.
        Windows 2000 DC SP4 latest critical updates applied
        DNS setup and functioning fine
        ADC connector installed from Exchange SP3
        2way trust established with NT Domain
        Exchange user account with Schema Domain Admin created
        W2K Exchange account given rights to Exchange 5.5 ORG, site, and config
        NT Domain SP6a
        Exchange 5.5 SP4
        I installed the ADC from the Exchange SP3 folder with no errors upon
        completion. I provide the exchange 5.5 user account with admin rights
        I Ran the Forest Prep and Domain prep with no errors noted. The active
        directory populated itself with disabled accounts from the Exchange 5.5
        When running setup it asks for exchange server to use, once you add this
        another box appears with the Exchange admin account grayed out.  Once 
        supply the password a dialog box with the âThis account must be valid
        before continuingâ
        I researched and found many references to Q297921
        I ran the forest prep update and domain prep updates, with no luck.  I
        created a user account with the same name and password as suggested but
        this also failed to correct the issues
        Any suggestions would be appreciatedâ.
