  • Adding 2003R2 server as a DC to existing 2003 domain

    Hello,

    I am trying to add a new windows 2003R2 server to an existing windows 2003 domain as an additional domain controller. The Existing DC is a 2003 clean install that been running for 2 years and this new box is a clean install of 2003R2. I have been able to join the domain as a member server but when I run DCPromo I get the error that reads that the forest is not prepared for installing server 2003. I tred to run AD Prep on the first DC and the response was that it was already updated.

    Should I be running DC promo before i join the domain as a member server?

    Thanks in advance,

    Jay b.
