ADPREP unable to extend the schema during adprep /forestprep
Posted on 2009-12-31
I am trying to introduce a 2003 server into a 2000 domain to replace the bdc which has died (cannot boot up at all). I am trying to run adprep /forestprep from the pdc. I have verified that it is running all the fsmo roles and is the schema master. I get the following message when running adprep /forestprep::
"The schema master did not finish replication after last reboot. The schema master must complete at least one replication cycle before the schema can be extended. Verify that the schema master is connected to the network and can communicate with other domain controllers. Use the Sites and Services snap in to replicate between the schema operations master and at least one replication partner. After replication has succeeded, run adprep again."
I cannot replicate, as the other dc is dead. Should I delete that server?
