Lara, Thanks for the reply.
Exchange 5.5 is lDAP uses port 389 and i dont need to change that
because i am not doing inplace upgrade what do you think?
I am not using the following nomenclature SERVERNAME:LDAPPORT
I can ping the server successfully without any hassles and the name
resolution is working. WINS is also installed.
Even then getting the same error messages.
Dont know why??

        Athif, when running forestprep (or any time you reference the
Exchange server in setup), are you using the following nomenclature:
SERVERNAME:LDAPPORT? It would look like: EXCHANGESVR:389. This is
assuming that Exchange is actually listening on port 389 (previous
messages have all the info needed to check); modify the port number
        Some other obvious things to check: can you ping the Exchange
5.5 box by name from the box you're trying to install Exchange 2000 on?
Is WINS running on your network? Exchange 2k requires it (believe it or
not), so try installing it and run setup again. If you install WINS on a
box other than the Exchange 2k box, be sure to modify the Exchange 2k
box's TCP/IP settings to reference that server. Is DNS working well in
your organization? Make sure that everything in your DNS zone that
should be there is: references to the domain controllers, etc. You
shouldn't need to modify your hosts file at all if DNS is working as

                Thanks for the reply.
                In my scenario, the Exchange 5.5 is on NT4 which is
acting as a BDC. I am trying to install a new exchange 2000 in same site
and i am getting this error, Setup encountered error while attempting to
bind the Exchange Server "Servername:0xC103FC93(64659): could not bind
to the Microsoft Exchange Directory Server,SERVERNAME. The Microsoft
Exchange Server computer doesnot respond" The machine on which i am
trying to install e2k is also an Additional Domain controller. How do i
troubleshoot  this error?
                Any suggestions.
                Thanks again,
