I have a 2003 domain (1 domain for the forest) with 3 DCs
I've installed a 2008 server and added it to the domain as member server
before I promote it to DC I want to make sure I have the correct steps:
1. adprep /forestprep -> run on the Schema master DC
2. adprep /domainprep /gpprep -> run on any DC
3. dcpromo on 2008 server
when it's done, anything special to check other then the fact that it is showing under Domain Controllers?
now this is where I'm not sure - the adprep.exe file...
should I use the file on the 2008 DVD?
is it different from the one on 2003?
can I just copy adprep.exe to the local disk and run it (any other requirements to run it?)
any additional tips?
