When you are installing Exchange Server version 5.5 and using a very long site or organization name, errors may occur. If the name is longer than 64 characters but fewer than 256, a dialog box will be displayed with the following message:
A dialog box will be displayed that allows you to specify a directory name for the organization and site. Valid input will only be a drive specification (that is, C: or D:). Setup will resume from this point and use the previously specified long site and organization names (abbreviated to 64 characters).
If the name you entered for the site or the organization is more than 256 characters, you will receive the following error message:
Setup will fail at this point. The only alternative is to restart the Setup program and select a shorter name for the organization and site of the Exchange Server computer.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Exchange Server versions 5.0 and 5.5. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available. Additional query word: installation
