Missing "Pre-Windows 2000 Compatibilty Access" Built-in Group
Posted on 2006-11-09
I am trying to run adprep /domainprep /gpprep. on a win2k Server.
I have run adprep /forestprep succesfullly.
The group is not in the Built-in accounts in Domain or local security policies
Iget an error saying the "Everyone" needs to be added to the"Pre-Windows 2000 Compatibilty Access" Group. Here is the log file:
Adprep failed in the attempt to add the Anonymous Logon SID to the Pre-Windows 2000 Compatible Access group.
For backward compatibility, Adprep requires that the Anonymous Logon security group be a member of the pre-Windows 2000 Compatible Access security group if the Everyone group is also a member. On domain controllers running Windows Server 2003, the Everyone group no longer includes Anonymous Logon.
Check the log file Adprep.log in the system root System32\Debug\Adprep\Logs directory for more information.
Adprep encountered a Win32 error.
Error code: 0x5 Error message: Access is denied..
Adprep was unable to update domain-wide information.
Adprep requires access to existing domain-wide information from the infrastructure master in order to complete this operation.
Check the log file, Adprep.log, in the C:\WINNT\system32\debug\adprep\logs\20061109142105 directory for more information.
