  • cannot dcpromo 2008r2 in 2003 AD

    Hi,
    I am getting problems with 2008r2 dcpromo to AD 2003.
    1. AD services role is installed

    2. When run dcpromo on 2008r2 getting a message:
    run adprep /forestprep. adprep located in 2008 media support....
    Microsoft says that before promoting new 2008 into 2003 AD, adprep should be run on current 2003 shema master

    3.
    when run adprep on 2003 it says:
    c
    Forest-wide information has already been updated.
    [Status/Consequence]
    Adprep did not attempt to rerun this operation.

    D:\I386>

    4. When run adprep on 2008r2 (just because dcpromo wizard says to run. so I gave a try.)

    So I need help

    Thanks,
    Michael.

    I'm not sure what your question is, but have you read this?

      Marcel,
      the problem is that I couldn't run adprep on 2003 master...
      In the Daniel's article I found a great tip that should help (I will try later).

      I used 2008 64bit adprep on 2003 32bit. I have to add 2008 32 bit adprep.

      Thanks,
      Michael.

        Yes, it worked fine.

        adprep32.exe is on 2008r2 media in support\adprep
        so I could run it on 2003 server.

        my first try was just adprep.exe that is 64 bit

        Thx.
        Michael.
