  • 2008 dcpromo into existing 2003 domain - continued adprep warning

    I'm adding a new 2008R2 Standard server to an existing 2003R2 Standard domain. I've used the 2008 adprep utility on the 2003 DC.

    adprep /forestprep
    adprep /domainprep
    adprep /domainprep /gpprep

    All have completed successfully yet the 2008 dcpromo continues to fail, warning that I need to run adprep /forestprep.

    I followed one of Daniel's atricles to verify the revision (5) and objectversion (47) using ADSIEdit but mine show as 2 and 44 instead. I don't know if changing these manually will help or is even advised.

    petri.co.il/prepare-for-server-2008-r2-domain-controller.htm (Sorry, can't post links yet)

    Any further attempts to run adprep on the 2003 DC tells me that are not needed.

    I have verified that the Domain and Forest function levels on the DC are 2003.

    The 2008 server has been joined to the existing domain (Tried dcpromo before and after)

    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    Are you sure you ran R2 adprep or just off a regular Server 2008 media? (Version numbers suggest this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/556086)
    Did you run it on the FSMO holder?
    Did you run the correct version (32 bit or 64 bit) for the DC you were running it on?

        Ossian I believe you have this sorted out with the adprep mismatch. I'll try again with a verified R2 version and post back. Thanks a ton!

            That was indeed, my issue. Found the correct version and everything is operational.

            Thanks again!
