  • Can't Run adprep /rodcprep

    Hi there,

    I have a windows AD domain with a 2k3 dc and a 2k8 dc. The 2k3 dc had all the fsmo roles so I built a new 2k8 dc and transferred all the roles to it. The idea is to raise the domain/forest functional level to 2008 and introduce a RODC.

    I have tried a lot of diffrent things like dcdiag, dcdiag /q, this link and have had no luck running the rodcprep command. I keep getting the below error. Can you please help?

    C:\>d:\sources\adprep\adprep /rodcprep
    Adprep connected to the domain FSMO:

    To successfully update all partititions, the current logged on user needs to be

    Are you logging in with Enterprise Admin rights???

    To update the Forest Schema you need to be an Enterprise Admin.
