Windows Server 2008 ADPREP /FORESTPREP FAILS - ERROR 110

Running the ADPREP for Win Server 2008 to prepare our Windows 2003 domain for a Win Server 2008 domain controller.  On the schema master, ran the 2008 adprep /forestprep.   Updated many things, then aborted at the end with an Error Code 110.   Here is the last part of the log:

Adding value:"mSDS-PhoneticLastName,Phonetic Last Name" for locale 409, object inetOrgPerson-Display and property attributeDisplayNames.

Updating change from:"X500 Distinguished Name" to "Distinguished Name"  for locale 409, object inetOrgPerson-Display and property attributeDisplayNames.

Updating change from:" International ISDN Number (Others)" to "International ISDN Number (Others)"  for locale 409, object inetOrgPerson-Display and property attributeDisplayNames.

Adprep was unable to complete because the call back function failed.

[Status/Consequence]

Error message: Error(110) while running ""C:\WINDOWS\system32\LDIFde.exe" -o ObjectGuid -d "CN=nTDSSiteSettings-Display,CN=401,CN=DisplaySpecifiers,CN=Configuration,DC=calvaryspringfield,DC=org" -u -f "C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1.CAL\LOCALS~1\Temp\TMP3391.tmp" -j "C:\WINDOWS\debug\adprep\logs\20081021132702" -s 1730wchurch.calvaryspringfield.org".

Check the log file ADPrep.log, in the C:\WINDOWS\debug\adprep\logs\20081021132702 directory for more information.


I have no idea what this means or how to resolve it.  NEED HELP!!   Please advise.  Thanks.
Adprep set the value of registry key System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS\Parameters\Schema Update Allowed to 1



Adprep was unable to update forest information.

[Status/Consequence]

Adprep requires access to existing forest-wide information from the schema master in order to complete this operation.

Can you do a netdiag then post results? Usually when you see this error it means that the adprep can't find the schema master FSMO role. You might will have to seize the role but lets look over a netdiag first.

I ran the command from the schema operations master DC, as directed.  Should not that have been ok.   Will run the netdiag if still needed.

Are you sure the schema master is functioning properly? Go a head run the netdiag so we can see if there is any problems.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I ran the tests, but lots of output.  What test in particular do you want to see?

Here is the output from a NTDSUTIL  >
