I currently have two DC's that are running 2003 SP1 and all other servers in the domain are running Windows 2003 Server 2003 or 2000 SP2.

I'm trying to extend the schema for 2 new servers running Windows 2003 R2.  From the server that has the FSMO roles running I'm running the Drive:\CMPNENTS\R2\ADPREP\adprep.exe /forestprep command from Disk 2.  I'm getting the following error:

'schupgr.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
Adprep was unable to upgrade the schema on the schema master.
[Status/Consequence]
The schema will not be restored to its original state.
[User Action]
Check the Ldif.err log file in the C:\WINNT\system32\debug\adprep\logs\200612011
42848 directory for detailed information.

Adprep was unable to update forest-wide information.
[Status/Consequence]
Adprep requires access to existing forest-wide information from the schema maste
r in order to complete this operation.

Check the log file, Adprep.log, in the C:\WINNT\system32\debug\adprep\logs\20061
201142848 directory for more information.

The log file tells me the following:

Adprep created the log file ADPrep.log under C:\WINNT\system32\debug\adprep\logs\20061201142848 directory.
Adprep copied file E:\CMPNENTS\R2\ADPREP\schema.ini from installation point to local machine under directory C:\WINNT.

Adprep is continuing.

ADPREP WARNING:
Before running adprep, all Windows 2000 domain controllers in the forest should be upgraded to Windows 2000 Service Pack 1 (SP1) with QFE 265089, or to Windows 2000 SP2 (or later).
