2000 to 2003 Schema Move
Posted on 2004-10-18
I have been running 2 Win2000 DC's and have just installed and did the dcpromo on a Win2003 server and it all worked like a champ after I did the Adprep on the Win2000 PDC w/ the Schema Master. On the Win2003 DC, I was able to switch the PDC, RID, DN, Infrastructure and GC to the new Win2003 DC so all seems to be working properly.
Here's my problem. On the Win2003 server, when I go into Active Directory Schema, right-click and choose Operations Master, it's just giving me the Win2000 DC's in the option to change. The new Win2003 server is not automaticlly displaying as it did properly as it did for the other server rolls as in my 1st paragraph.
The new server has been a DC for about 4 hours now and I have forced all kinds of replications.
Unless I'm missing something while searching the net, one question I have on this topic is since I'm in mixed mode with both 2000 and 2003 DC's, can the Schema not be on a Win2003 server?
What have I missed?
