Update domain controller from w2k to w2k3.

Hi,

Windows 2000 active directory in native mode. There are w2k3 and w2k server within the domain, any considerations before updating a domain controller from w2k to w2k3?.

Thank you.

Hi,

We've upgraded the domain controller with a w2k3 + SP1 instead SP2 by mistake and something went wrong. Some services like Windows Time and WMI aren't working in the right way. Even more, WMI service has disappeared and Windoes Time doesn't start.

If i try to reinstall SP1 I got the error "an error in updating your system has occurred" and "Windows Server 2003 has been partially updated and may not work properly".

I've done some research and it might be related with a WMI corruption. I've tried to recreate WMI repository but the system doesn't recognise the winmgmt service and every step I follow I get a wmi error.

I'll try to reinstall WMI to solve the problem, but I'm not totally convinced that that action will solve the problem.

Any help woulb be very appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi Firebar,

We can't wait more time. We've done a dcpromo and restoring a ghost image.

Thank you for your responses.
