DCpromo - ADprep - Server 2003
Posted on 2008-10-14
Running DCpromo on a member server that I want promoted to a BDC, the potential BDC is a brand new box running 2k3 R2 SP2
When running through Dcpromo on the potential BDC, I got the following error
"The operation failed because:
The Active Directory Installation Wizard cannot continue because the forest is not prepared for installing Windows Server 2003. Use the Adprep command-line tool to prepare both the forest and the domain. For more information about using the Adprep, see Active Directory Help.
"The version of the Active Directory schema of the source forest is not compatible with the version of Active Directory on this computer."
The PDC is 2k3 SP2 also, but not R2.
I have never ran adprep before , can someone please guide me through the process step by step?
