adprep issue

Hello,
I have a new server I want to add to a win2k domain. This new server runs server 08. I am trying to run adprep/ forestprep on the win2k machine, and everything goes through just fine, except two issues at the bottom of the log.

I have looked it up on web, and NO, I do not have an anti-virus software program running. I checked the %systemroot% and it points to WINNT. I have checked the registry key,

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetLogon\Pa rameters\SysVol, and I changed the value  %SystemRoot%\SYSVOL\sysvol correctly. I am also logged in as administrator.

I keep getting these errors.
____________________________________________________________




Adprep was unable to complete because the call back function failed.

[Status/Consequence]

Error message: An error occurred while attempting to bind to object organizationalUnit-Display using the path LDAP://lebanonpdc.LEBANON.PFD/CN=organizationalUnit-Display,CN=415,CN=DisplaySpecifiers,CN=Configuration,DC=LEBANON,DC=PFD. An operations error occurred.

Are you running the adprep on the Schema Master? If you are then run netdiag and dcdiag to check for errors. Make sure you are only pointing to internal DNS servers and you are running this command on a existing DC that holds the schema master role.

This is my only DC, and running it on that. I will try running netdiag and dcdiag.

Go to the command prompt type netdiag if you don't have the support tools installed then you need to install

rizla7Commented:
are you logged in as an enterprise and schema admin? i guess so, since the beginning runs ok?

do you have persmissions to modify the objects in AD? (a possible misconfiguration?)

this is most likely a permissions issue. the error is an ldap error 80072020.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;232282

ldap also returns windows error code prefixed with 8007, as the article states. here is the reference for those

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms681390(v=VS.85).aspx

unfortunately, it doesnt say anything specific.

I cannot run those programs due to this being Win2k server. MS advises that this tool is only available for server 03.

Do I have to change the current DC to "Native Mode" first, and then run the adprep/forestprep????? I still get message.

Just for kicks and grins, I attempted to add my server 08 to the domain, and I do get the message to run adprep/forestprep....

I am stuck at this error, and cannot go any further...

Any help would be appreciated.

yes, you must be in native mode

I have changed the win2k server to native mode, and downloaded the win2k support tools (thank you dariusq). I ran netdiag, and all systems passed except one, and it was the dns test... Message included below..... I do not know what is going on....

Post ipconfig /all.

Make sure the server is poniting to itself for DNS and only internal DNS servers it seems that you have external DNS servers in the TCP\IP properties which is not correct.

Once making the change run ipconfig /flushdns, ipconfig /registerdns, and netdiag /fix.

In the forward lookup zone of the DNS, we have the parent domain as our host which is the domain name, and the host which is the name of the server and the IP address of the server.

Our external dns servers are the 12.127.16.68, and the 12.127.16.72. Is this wrong???

in TCP/IP, I changed the dns servers to the local server. I then ran the netdiag, and all success... I then ran the dcdiag, and get errors there included below.......

I then tried dcdiag/fix and getting the same errors.

OK, so my basic problem is...

I currently have a one DC domain with about 50 users, and we are upgrading to a new server with MS Server 08. I am trying to add the new server to the domain, transfer over all the profiles, demote the old server, and promote the new one. This will then let me decommission the win2k server.

Is there any other way of doing this without having to run adprep/forestprep, and the steps above?

I have thought about the built in Windows XP transfer to another computer application to transfer over settings to new profiles within the domain, but not sure that would work.

I am about ready to give up... The bad thing is that I have data that I need to transfer over, and have the users starting to point to that data in new location. and then create totally new profiles for them on the new server. decommission the old server, and replace it with creating a whole new domain.

That is hell of alot of work, but see no other choice at this point.

For $250 you can call MS who can actually view your system which seems is going to be the best way.

Dariusq, I cannot thank you enough for your help. You have stuck through this, and gave me several options, and I appreciate that. Thank you so much....

I don't think I will call MS, but I will just work my way through it. This current server has always been real shady... Maybe the Active Directory is corrupt... not sure, but once again, thank you.

The thing that is getting me is that you should have Event in the logs showing the above errors in description but you are saying there isn't any.

Sounds like our active directory is corrupt... So I guess I will do it the hard way....

I have a different question, but I will start a new thread....

I think the answer was the AD DBs were corrupt without a good backup from when they weren't corrupt there was no other solution to fix but the overall issue was solved.
