My global catalog server is windows 2000 based. Now we received the NAS server wunning on windows 2003 server. I joined this new server to the windows 200 domain. Now I ran DCPROMO on windows 2003 server to make it additions domain controller for windows 2000 domain, it gave the error message that it cannot join the forest as it is not compatibale with this version of windows.

What do to now. I don't want to demolish the catalog server running window 2003.

All the user data will be in NAS and I need to set permission for each user, I cannot do that without making windows 2003 server as ADC.

Please help me out of this situation....\

Do I need to install windows 2000 on NAS also.....

Read the readme that comes on the Windows 2003 CD
You need to run ADPREP on your forest and the domain.

as stated above you need to run adprep to update the 2k schema with the new object and attributes that 2k3 uses. As what you are actually doing is upgrading AD to 2003
