Adprep /forestprep fails
Posted on 2009-07-03
I am trying to update a 2008 standard server to an existing 2000 domain. The 2000 standard server is the only DC on this network. I am logged in as the domain administrator on the 2000 server. DNS is working correctly. I get an error when I try to run adprep /forestprep and will not let me continue. Below are the error log files that were generated by the adprep utility.
There is a syntax error in the input file
Failed on token starting with 'o' on line 63

An error has occurred in the program

The ojectClass line is line 63 from the sch23.ldf file. I believe this is my issue, but I don't know how to resolve this issue. Please Help. Thanks
