I am attempting to raise the domain functional level but keep getting the following error.
The functional level could not be raised. The error is: The server is unwilling to process the request.
There have been several server crashes before I arrived and several were left in AD. Also there have been several DC running win 2000 that were demoted. I have used the metadata cleanup per the MS knowledgebase article and I have cleaned up DNS. Below is the event log from the server.
