I am having a problem with running sysprep on my Windows 2000 Server the error I get is noted below: - The server has the lastest service pack and patches.  The purpose for doing this is to add a Windows 2003 Server to my domain.

Adprep was unable to complete because the call back function (null) failed.

[Status/Consequence]

Error message: An error occurred while attempting to bind to object mSMQMigratedUser-Display using the path LDAP://manh02.MANH03.OPER.COM/CN=mSMQMigratedUser-Display,CN=413,CN=DisplaySpecifiers,CN=Configuration,DC=MANH03,DC=OPER,DC=com. An operations error occurred.

Make sure you are logging in with the enterprise admin account not the domain admin.  

Run DCDIAG and NETDIAG and review the logs from that.

Good luck,

No no no..  NOT just an enterprise admin account..  The account you need to be logging on to must be a member of the SCHEMA ADMINS group (often also a member of the Enterprise Admins, but VERY different)...  Also make certain that you can contact the Schema Master FSMO role holder..  It's usually best to run forestpreps directly on the Schema Master...

exx1976,

Schema admin is not only usually in enterprise admins but it is there by defult.  That being the case  you would know about the power of "Schema Admin" had you removed it from the Enterprise Admins security group for add security.

The "no no no...  was a bit much.

redbutterfly,
How goes the battle?
