  • Migrating Window 2000 to 2003 on different hardware.

    Hi i have one 2000 domain controller and one 2000 exchange server. I am upgrading my AD to install exchange 2007 in my organization.

    One my windows 2000 domain controller i ran the adprep/forestprep and domainprep. I saw the modification of the Schema. I successfully transfer the all the FSMO role. I promoted my windows 2003 to a domain controller.

    when i open the active directory and user and computer to raise my domain functionality level. I did not see the windows 2003 in the drop down list only windows 2000 native.Is it normal or not, i have read a lot of stuff on this topic.

    After doing Dcpromo on My windows 2003 server how do get all the functionality of windows 2003 server. I need to installed exchange 2007 but i need to know wht to do there.

    In order to be able to raise the Forest and Domain Functional Levels to W2K3 native all your DCs have to be Windows 2003.

      Does this mean after i demote my windows 2000 DC from the forest then i will be able to raise my domain functionality to 2003 native. Is it also approciate to extend the schema during normal networking hours to run the adprep/forestprep command.

        in the case of such a small network ? just get a full backup before adprep-ing and I would do it by the end of the day - if anything goes wrong (which should not happen), this will not affect the users.

          Extending Schema 2000 AD schema

          Hi Guys,

          I have windows 2000 advance server runing AD another server runing exchage 2000. I want to upgrade and installed exchange 2007.

          I inserted the windows 2003 R2 disk two into the drive and browse the appropiate folder and selected the adprep/forestprep and executed. It was asked whether i had SP2 or above, i responded by press "c" and enter. The command line vanishes without the schema extension. I have tried more than two Set of Windows 2003. The command line keeps vanishing.

          The second issue is with the domain functionality role. When i go the Active directory Domain trusts and right click the domain , i can't the see the option to raise my domain controller fuctionality level.

          When i ran my exchange base Analyzer i was told tht my domain controller is irunning in mix mode. I don't know wht do do now with the schema and the domain roles.

            isn't R2 schema Extention could be done only on Win 2003 AD?
            it seems you have Win 2000 AD.

                Building on Akila's reply sounds u r using the R2 disk to run the Adprep/forestprep commands

                We need shoot these commands from the Windows 2003 disk from the i386 folder

                Check KB 325379..
