Hello,

I updated my schema on a 2000 Server box with Windows 2003 Server. I was at the time going to upgrade to 2003 AD. After updating the schema I decided not to upgrade my network yet. Now I'm ready and 20003 R2 is out. I tried to update the 2000 server with the new schema for R2 but it says it is already updated. The problem is that I'm trying to add a 2003 R2 member server to the domain and then later promote it and remove the 2000 box. When I run dcpromo it says some error about the wrong schema.  Please help

Ok, I ran the adprep.exe /forstprep from that folder, then tried to run the domainprep and it said it was already updated. Is it safe to proceed
