Windows Server 2012 AD-Role activation fails
Posted on 2013-06-13
we have a problem on which i got stuck for the moment.
To the history:
We took over a new customer who was the meaning, he is running 2 DCs, one Windows 2008 R2 and one Windows Server 2003. When we took over the customer we saw, that the Windows 2003 Server was already crashed and not working anymore.
Now of course we wanted to implement another DC with an actual OS Windows Server 2012.
Installation and integration to the Domain was fine, but activate the AD-Role failed.
Message: AD is running in an Windows 2000 Version!?
Trying to read out the AD Shema Version on the Windows 2008 Server responses an empty Attribut of the ObjectVersion.
Now i am a little bit stuck because recovery of the old Windows Server DC is impossible due to the fact of an missing backup of the previous service provider.
Can anybody give me a hint into the right direction what what could be the next steps?
Thanks in advance,
