I am running the setup on the new Windows 2008 server. I am logged in as the
EA. DNS is correct. I have copied the files to the local drive with the same

It doesn't seem like it can't connect, it seems like it is this specific
schema entry because there is a successful entry in the log before the
failure for "ms-OWA-Virtual-Directory". Is it possible that this entry
doesn't exist? When I search the schema I do not see it.

> What server are you running the setup /prepareAD? Is it on the Schema Master? If on the Schema Master or some other machine, are you logged on as the Enterprise Admin (by default the first domain's admin account is the EA).
> Whatever machine you are on, make absolutely sure the DNS settings on the machine, or any machine in the domain, are only using the domain controller's IP address, and not the ISP's or router's IP as a DNS address. This is a common cause of this type of 'unavailable' error because it may be asking some other DNS server where the domain controller is. Also a single label AD DNS domain name can cause this ('domain' rather than the required minimum of '' domain.something", etc).
