2003 domain schema

In an effort to troubleshoot Printer Deployment via GP I am verifying the schema of my single domain. DC FSMO role holder is Server 2003 R2.

I tried verifying the schema ver using ADSI edit, & dsquery with no results. Can't seem to find CN=Schema. I found an experts-exchange question stating you can find it at:

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS\Parameters

System Schema Version = 30 (not 31)
Schema Version = 44 ????? don't understand why it's 44

I ran: adprep /forestprep (from the R2 CD)
OUTPUT:
"Forest-wide information has already been updated. [Status/Consequence] Adprep did not attempt to rerun this operation."

I believe that the system schema version is the problem with my GPOs not deploying the printers.

Ideas?

When you ran the forest and domain prep did you run it from second CD/disc 2?
You can also check for schema version easily using adfind

adfind -sc schver

yes... also ran: adprep /domainprep /gpprep
OUTPUT:

Domain-wide information has already been updated.[Status/Consequence] Adprep did not attempt to rerun this operation.

Thanks for the cool tool mkline71:

ran: adfind -sc schver
OUTPUT:
>objectVersion: 44 [Windows Server 2008]

which explains to Schema Version. This schema version should be sufficient then right?

I guess I should repost or continue the question with troubleshooting the deployment of printers using a GPO

Created GPO: Corp-Printers

Under Computer Configuration --> Deployed Printers --> defined (2) printers served by another DC (Server 2008 Datacenter)

Because clients are all XP SP2
Under Computer Configuration --> Windows Settings --> Scripts (Startup/Shutdown) --> Startup --> defined "PushPrinterConnections.exe" with Parameter "-log"

RSOP indicates policy is being applied to client...

Any ideas what to check next?

Yeah that should be ok,  you are actually ready for Windows 2008 DCs.
I'd open up another one for printer deployment -- new subject line may attract more hits.
One thing I would suggest looking into are the farily new Group Policy Preferences (can help with printers)
GP MVP Darre Mar-Elia has a decent overview of the preferences here
