Symptoms Exchange 2003 Setup on a cluster node that is running Windows 2000 with Kerberos Authentication enabled has a prerequisite that will prevent Setup from continuing unless you first:
  • Intall the hotfix that this article provides.

  • Install Windows 2000 Service Pack 4.
When you increase diagnostic logging on the server, you may receive the following event message in the Security log of the Event Viewer:

Event type: Failure Audit
Event source: Security
Category: Logon/Logoff
Event ID: 537
Date: date
Time: time
Computer: computername

Logon Failure:
Reason: An unexpected error occurred during logon
User Name:
Logon Type: 3
Logon Process: Kerberos
Authentication Package: Kerberos
Workstation Name: -


This behavior occurs because Kerberos authentication is turned on. As a result, an authentication issue occurs between Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0 and the Exchange virtual server's IIS resources.
