  • ADPREP already done and still cannot add new DC to network

    I have joined a small company with 2 local servers - 1 win 2003 Enterprise and the other 2000 server. I have just finished replacing the 2000 server with a new 2003 standard server. When I try to make the new server a DC, dcpromo fails stating i should run adprep on the domain however, when I try running adprep, the network states adprep has already been run. Seems like i'm caught in a catch 22...
    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated and thanks

    Is your 2003 server an R2 edition. If so, try running ADPREP of the R2 disk - it is different from the main ADPREP.
    TIA
