AD Schema Extension fails

lansol used Ask the Experts™

i have recently implemented SCCM r2 on a windows 2008 r2 server and i didnt perform the schema extension process prior to the sccm installation.

I have ran through the process on my 2008 R2 PDC, and the schema extenion was able to create all 10 of attributes however it failed to create the 4 classes. See log file below:

once i run those steps, i assume im ok to rerun the ExADSch utility to attempt the extension again???

i just want to make sure that im not going to create AD problems for myself trying to run this extension process over and over.


scratch that, it ran fine and the output file said it was all done successfully!

thanks for that!
