  • Running DCPROMO

    I'm setting up a new DC and ran DCPROMO, on a existing forest. Once it gets to setting up active directory is fails with a erro, Operation failed because a active directory installation wizard can not continue because the forest is not prepared for installing windows server 2003, use the Adprep command line tool to prepare both the forest and the domain. I tried to run this command on both servers and the command is not found. The new server is running windows server 2003, The only difference from the main box is its running Version R2. Please help

    Thanks

    Run adprep from the R2 cd to prepare the schema.

        Run it on the schema master as per the link.

        EDIT: I think you changed your post as I was writing. - ADPREP from the R2 CD (not the first CD) and run it on the schema master machine. Make sure you have a compatible version too x32 or x64

          Thanks, I also have another location that is running a DC, on a different IP scame but on the same domain, Do I need to update that on also or onlt the one at this location that the new server will replicate with.

                Sorry about the spelling, I have the R2 cd#2 in the proper server and navigated to F:\CMPNENTS\R2\ADPREP\ADPREP.exe and clicked but it just blinked a fast cmd box and that was it, My guess is there is more to this then that. Please advise if im in the wrong area.

                Thanks
