I just got a new server for my organization. I have 4 existing server all running Windows Server 2003. My new server has Windows Server 2003 R2. It gives me an error when I try to promote it to a DC. I looked up the error and found that I need to run ADPREP in the server that holds the Schema Master. My question is ... WIll have to restart the server that I run ADPREP on?
