Problem running /rodcprep when installing a 2008 DC in a 2003 environment
Posted on 2011-10-20
I'm in the process of migrating from sbs2003 to exchange 2010 and 2008 DC.
Having a problem with the /rodcprep command.
The error I'm getting is:
Adprep found partition DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=domain,DC=local, and is about to update the permissions.
Adprep was about to call the following LDAP API. ldap_search_s(). The base entry to start the search is CN=Infrastructure,DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=domain,DC=local.
LDAP API ldap_search_s finished, return code is 0x0
Adprep could not contact a replica for partition DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=domain,DC=local.
Adprep encountered an LDAP error.
Error code: 0x0. Server extended error code: 0x0, Server error message: (null).
Adprep failed the operation on partition DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=domain,DC=local. Skipping to next partition.
I believe the problem is with the server that holds the infrastructure role?
if I run net dom fmso then it correctly reports that all 5 fmso roles are held by the SBS server
if i run this:
ldifde -f Infra_DomainDNSZones.ldf -d "CN=Infrastructure,DC=DomainDnsZones,DC=contoso,DC=com" -l fSMORoleOwner
then the owner is reported as being the only other DC that we have, not the sbs server
My question is how do I get the right info into AD to allow /rodcprep to run correctly?
Any answers need to be step by step please as my scripting/ldifde is pretty basic.
Thanks in advance
