If you are trying to rebuild your Exchange server, then the best option 
would be to pick up the settings of the old Exchange server 2003 which is 
already there in Active directory. You do not need to run Forestprep and 
Domainprep. Try running the setup with the /disasterrecovery switch and the 
installation will pick up the old installation settings from Active 
directory and you should be okay rather than making all the schema changes 
again by running forestprep and domainprep.In your case make sure that you 
are running the installation with an account which has got appropriate
