I am trying to setup DFS Replication on my Active Directory Domain.  When i do this i get an error "The active Directory Schema on domain controller cannot be read.  This error might be caused by a schema that has not been extended, or was extended improperly

How many DCs do you have?  If any are R2 versions, did you run Adprep on the Schema?

Is replication working between all DCs or are there errors?

You can use REPLMON (Windows Support Tools) to check and/or run DCDIAG /v and output it to text so you can post it here.

It's possible it is extended, but replication hasn't converged on all your DCs yet (problem perhaps?).

I have found that you have to update the schema.  On 2003 server AD has no entries for this... so you have to update the AD Schema for this added fungtionality that comes with 2003 R2.

@CaseForensics - please open your own question.  Attempting to get your own problem solved on someone else's question/points is against board rules.

@pritchardl - I suppose you need to accept an answer now.  Thanks.

Agreed.  We'll be more than happy to help out.  Post a Q and we'll have a look - take time to explain what is happening and what you've done recently.

I object.  

Extending the Schema was the first post I made to him in the first reply to the question.  As he stated the answer was to extend the Schema then closing this Q without awarding points is wrong.
