adding 2008 dc
Posted on 2008-09-29
hi im just testing rolling out a new dell server into our 2003 AD, i have moved a duplicate 2003 server and the new server onto their own private network and am trying to first add the 2008 server as a DC then promote and demote to make the 2008 machine the DC and retire the 2003 machine.
What is happening though is when i try to dcpromo the 2008 machine and it tells me that i need to adprep /domainprep but i have done this both to the forest and domain and tried it again on the 2003 machine and it confirmed that it had already been done.
dns etc seems to be all working correctly as i can join disjoin the domain name resolution appears fine so im sort of stuck for a reason as to why it keeps asking to be adprepped?
