I took over a office that is having active directory problems, the previous company added a 2003 Server standard edition. The old server was 2000, and they never properaly migrated the environment. I tried to transfer over the roles, and was unsuccessful. So as practice i seized the roles over to the server, and now I'm getting errors. The 2003 server now, is missing the PDC, RID, and infrastructure roles. It's holding the schema owner, and domain role owner, but when I run netdom query fsmo i get the first 2.
The other 3 I get system cannot find the file specified.
The command failed to complete successfully.
I've been trying to resolve each error one by one, and is not working. Is there a way I can get this server to pick up the roles without the old server being present. I'm trying to avoid recreating the whole domain, but at this point i've spent so much time. I should just start from scratch.
-I'm also getting an error when I open group policy editor,
"The domain controller for Group Policy operations is not available. You may cancel this operation for this session or retry for this session using one of the following domain controllers. I havent researched this error."
