Promoting 2008 R2 server in an SBS 2003 domain
Posted on 2012-12-21
I have an SBS 2003 SP2 box that is the PDC in the domain. I am logging in administrator which is a memeber of enterprise admins. The functional level of the domain and forest is 2003. I have added the 2008 R2 box as an additional DC, and it added successfully. Now if I try to open ADUC on the 2008 box I get:
Naming informationcannot be loctaed for the following reason: The server is not operational. If you are trying to connect to a windows 200 server, verify that SP3 is installed.
If I try to open Domains and Trusts, I get "you cannot modify domain or trust information because a primary domain controller cannot be contacted.
In the big picture I am trying to move off of SBS to 2008 R2, and one of the main hurdles is trying to authorize the DHCP server (authorice not displayed)
