I ran an adprep /forestprep and an adprep /domainprep on the current windows 2000 DC.  Im trying to run DCpromo on a windows 2003 R2 server and i still get the follwoing error.  I cant figure out why.

There's another AD PREP you have to run on the second CD of R2.

the server came directly from Dell with R2 on it.  Im not upgrading anything.  Do i still run the version of adprep from the r2 release on the Windows 2000 DC?

You run it on the 2000 DC.  So it came from Dell with R2 and you're not upgrading.  You STILL have to have the schema updated to the R2 version.

this is what i get when i do "replicate now"

The naming context is in the process of being removed or is not replicated from the specified server

Wait a second - why are you trying to force replication?  What's the hurry here - why not replication get done in its normal time?

Do you have any errors in the event logs?
