    ADPREP WARNING:



    Before running adprep, all Windows 2000 domain controllers in the forest should be upgraded to Windows 2000 Service Pack 1 (SP1) with QFE 265089, or to Windows 2000 SP2 (or later).



    QFE 265089 (included in Windows 2000 SP2 and later) is required to prevent potential domain controller corruption.



    For more information about preparing your forest and domain see KB article Q331161 at http://support.microsoft.com.



    [User Action]

    If ALL your existing Windows 2000 domain controllers meet this requirement, type C and then press ENTER to continue. Otherwise, type any other key and press ENTER to quit.



    Adprep was about to call the following LDAP API. ldap_search_s(). The base entry to start the search is CN=UID,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=mabrook,DC=co m.

    Adprep successfully determined whether Microsoft Windows Services for UNIX (SFU) is installed or not. If adprep detected SFU, adprep also verified that Microsoft hotfix Q293783 for SFU has been applied.

    [Status/Consequence]

    The schema will not be restored to its original state.

              i am also facing the same problem .............

              i believe, if you have all the FSMO role in a single win2K DC, then you need to move the Schema Master to another DC and then run the adprep /forestprep from the second DC in which the Schema holds to successfully prepare the windows 2000 forest for Win2K3 DC.
