Adding a Win Server 2008 server as a domain controller to a Win 2003 domain
Posted on 2012-03-10
I have a single domain 2003 domain that I want to add an additional Win Server 2008 domain controller to. The existing Win 2003 server will be removed once this have been completed and is no longer required.
I have successfuly run the following...
adprep32 /domainprep /gpprep
When I now try to add the new 2008 server as a domain controller using adprep32 /rodcprep then I get a message stating 'adprep could not contact the domain naming FSMO ...'
If I am happy for the new DC to be writable, can I just proceed with the DCpromo wizard when it states it cant be set up as read-only DC because adprep32 /RODCprep has not been run on the primary DC (Win 2003 server) ?
