I have a domain with 1 DC called "Servant" which runs Windows 2000 Advanced Server SP4
I would like to add a second DC running Windows 2003 R2 Standard Edition.
Before running dcpromo I prepared the w2k schema with the adprep tools. The DNS on SERVANT is DNS integrated and looks healthy.
Running dcpromo ends with this error box:
I am loggend in as the domain administrator and retried with the domain admin credentials without success. The administrator profile is a member of the Enterprise Admins group.
The relevant part of the DCPROMO.LOG file says this:
02/07 10:40:46 [INFO] Active Directory updated the schema cache.

Would be grateful for any help.
