Exchange Server Installation Error while running ‘ldifde.exe’ to import the schema file

I received following error on Exchange 2016 setup right after the readiness check of the installation complete.

 The following error was generated when "$error.Clear(); 
                 install-ExchangeSchema -LdapFileName ($roleInstallPath + "Setup\Data\"+$RoleSchemaPrefix + "schema0.ldf")
 " was run: "Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.TaskException: There was an error while running 'ldifde.exe' to import the schema file 'C:\Windows\Temp\ExchangeSetup\Setup\Data\PostExchange2003_schema0.ldf'. The error code is: 8224. More details can be found in the error file: 'C:\Users\theman\AppData\Local\Temp\2\ldif.err'
