  • 2000 domain upgrade issues (terminal services)

    hello all i just put this in the terminal services section, but it seems a bit quiet so thought i would put it here too (if thats ok!!?)

    a few things i didnt mention in the previous message is that the domain is

    domain functional level is: Windows 2000 native

    forest functional level is: Windows 2000

    could that be why im missing the remote desktop users group & AD DS group?


    im in the (slow) process of upgrading our domain from 2000 to 2008.

    we currently have 2 servers moved over to 2008 so far these are:


    new PDC which hasn't yet had the FSMO roles transferred. for arguments sake i will call this server "bob"

    the mailserver install went great, the install on "bob" went fine also, "bob" has RD licensing installed on it an will provide the licenses for all of our TS clients, however i have noticed an exclamation mark within the licensing manager saying

    "The system can not determine if the license server is a member of the TSLS group on Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) because the AD DS cannot be contacted"

    i have been through AD an there is no mention of AD DS!?

    i did run "adprep /domainprep" on the current GC before i did the installs

    is the error because i still have y2k TS?
