I have two separate 2003 servers and one server 2008 server. One of the 2003's is a domain controller without a cd drive. I'd like to adprep it without using the cd from the server 2008 machine or it's cd drive. I suppose there's other options, like installing a cd drive or using a usb cd drive, BUT I'm remoting to this machine, and would much rather copy the adprep files to a folder on the harddrive of the 2003 server and run it that way. Are there other options?
The second 2003 server is not a domain controller, and I'd like to add it to the 2003 domain as a second domain controller. I don't have the installation media, as it was misplaced at some point. I see adprep in the windows and in the cmpnents\r2 folders on the c:\ drive though. so same question. Is there a way to run adprep without necessarily having the cd drive or the cd accessible to me?
