Just create a temporary folder on desktop and extract there

I extracted to a new folder but when I try to run adprep /forestprep I get the following error.

Adprep created the log file ADPrep.log under C:\WINDOWS\system32\debug\adprep\logs\20090218144512 directory.



Adprep was unable to copy file C:\Hot Fixes\x86\schema.in_ from installation point to local machine under directory C:\WINDOWS. [User Action] Check the log file Adprep.log in the system root System32\Debug\Adprep\Logs directory for more information.

Adprep encountered a Win32 error. Error code: 0x2 Error message: The system cannot find the file specified..



Adprep was unable to copy setup files from installation point to local machine.[Status/Consequence] Adprep has stopped without making changes.[User Action] Make sure you run adprep.exe under the directory that contains the following files: schema.ini, sch*.ldf, dcpromo.cs_ and 409.cs_. The recommended way is running adprep.exe from installation media, such as CD-ROM or network share. Check the log file Adprep.log in the system root System32\Debug\Adprep\Logs directory for more information.

All it does is change the ADPREP so it understands 64-bit machines on a 32-bit domain. Any temp folder will do, since it will most likely get included under your Windows directory when implemented, plus added to your add/remove programs list under hotfixes.

Is your OS on a different drive (D or E)? Are you installing it using your Admin account? Those are the only 2 I can think of for why it's failing.

before  you run adprep open cmd prompt and change directory to your temp folder you extracted to

Thats what I have done but the hot fix did not seem like it installed anything. Do I have to reboot for this to take affect?

Reliv1Author Commented:
Because the hot fix is not listed in the add/remove programs under hot fixes

actually goto where the hotfix was extracted and run the WindowsServer2003-KB919151-x86-ENU.exe file

Reliv1Author Commented:
I did that and it asked for a destination folder for the files.

DonNetwork AdministratorCommented:
and then you ran the adprep located in there, correct?

Reliv1Author Commented:
Yes and that is when I get the error.

Try to manually copy the file to c:\windows and try again

move the schema.ini file into that folder along with the .ldf files and try again

I was thinking that I needed to move the adprep.exe file from the x86 folder to the folder with the 409.csv, dcpromo.csv, sch*.ldf, and shema.ini files. Any thoughts on that?

DonNetwork AdministratorCommented:
Pretty sure that if you move the files as above that it will work. The error you got was because the file that it was looking for wasnt in that directory
"C:\Hot Fixes\x86\schema.in"
