I am trying to upgrade our exchange server 2003 from standard to enterprise edition but setup fails with the following error " Collaboration data objects are in use". We have two exchange servers in a single domain with the other server running exchange 2000 SP3, and it mainly used for public folders for our timesheet application which uses the public folders on the exchange 2000 box. I shut down all exchange services on both servers before running setup without success. Please help

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try setting all exchange services to manual and reboot your servers. This will keep all services from running and should close all objects that were in use. Never ran into this, but this would be one thing to try at least.

Good Luck!

    Hello, Aside from shutting down all of your Exchange services on the machine being upgraded, did you by chance 'dismount' your mailbox and public folder stores? Your going to want to do this before you perform any type of upgrade. Good luck!

    I did dismount all the stores and shutdown all exchange services before running setup but still failed with the error described. Any more assistance would be appreciated. thank you

    Since Collaboration Data Objects are most commonly used to build messaging capabilities into other applications, it seems possible that another application that is running on your server is triggering this error. Take a close look at what is running on your server application wise and try to identify the source of the CDO's. It could be something suttle such as a script that uses SMTP messaging which runs in the background. Since you have two Exchange servers on your network, both being used for different tasks, unplug the server to be upgraded from the network and then install the software. Let us know how it turns out.
