Hi Mark:
I did that in the first place, without any success. When I change the
name, I got a different message that says that the OU differs from the
name that is published on AD. So my upgrade stops there.

If I remember correctly it?s the Display Name of the organization that
causes the problem, so in Exchange 5.5 Administrator, click on the
Organization Object and then go to File > Properties and change the
Name for the Organization object and then try to install Exchange 2000

Hope this helps

Hi all?
Last Saturday I began an Upgrade from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2K for a
client. The server were up to Sp3 on W2K and SP4 on Exchange, everything
running smooth until I insert the Exchange 2K CD for the upgrade. The
was that the upgrade can not be done because the name of the
contains invalid characters; the character was an ?&? in the middle of
name. The message told me that I have to change the name of the
thru the Admin console for Exchange 5.5.
I have tried everything to do it, but without success. Can anyone point
in the correct direction to solve my upgrade.?
