  • ADPrep /forest /domain

    Greetings. If you all have been following me around with my toyng of doing an upgrade of my Windows 2000 Advanced Server domain to WIndows 2003 R2 Standard, I am happy to report that I am not going through with it.

    Here is my question though...I did run the adprep commands (both) from the Win2k3 CD....now I am not going to add any 2k3 servers. Is this a big issue? Of am I just already to start adding them in on down the line whenever I get new hardware?

    Thanks!

    It's not an issue at all. Your Windows 2000 domain will still have all the schema attributes, objects and methods it needs to work; the Schema Update ADDS things, but takes nothing away (taking things away from the schema is not possible).

    If you've done the domain prep and forest prep from DISK 2 of the W2k3 R2 disk set, then you're good to go whenever you feel like it.

        You can add a Windows 2003 or 2008 server to a domain without needing to update the schema. It's only required if your looking to promote a server with a newer OS to a Domain Controller role.
