I promoted a new Windows 2003 server DC but havent runt forestprep and domainprep in the 2000 domain, What to do?

The Windows 2003 server is also Exchange so I cannot simply remove the AD.

Also, the domain is currently running in 2000 Mixed mode. Shall I change to Native?

You can promote win2003 DC only to extended schema domain, so your schema was extended with forestprep/domainprep I guess. Or maybe you promoted it as DC for new domain ,not for existing one?

Hmm, might have been so. It has been some other people before me working on that network. I joined an existing 2000 domain. What do you think about having the 2000-domain in mixed mode? Can that result in access-problems? The big problem I have is that I get "access denied" in many different events, and my guess was that something was wrong with the schema.. that the forestprep/domainprep command have failed or so.

 Is there a command to check the schema so I can prove that forestprep/domainprep have been run?

forestprep/domainprep can be run only once. So you can try to run them, and look at the result.

You can switch to native move if you do not have NT4 domain controllers.
