I am attempting to add a Windows Server 2008 R2 domain controller to our existing 2003 domain. Every time I try to run adprep32 /forestprep (from the 2008 R2 disk) I receive the following error:

"Adprep was unable to complete because the callback function failed.
[Status\Consequence]
Error message: Could not start ""C:\Windows\system32\CSVde.exe" -i -c DOMAINPLACEHOLDER"DC= (Mydomainnamehere), DC=org" -u -f "C:\Windows\debug\adprep\logs\20130613142948\DisplaySpecifierUpgradeCsvactions.001.csv" -j "C:\Windows\debug\adprep\logs\20130613142948" -s myserver.mydomain.org/" Access is denied.
<0x80070005>

If you could help me figure this out, that would be fantastic.

Thank you!

Links on technet etc are hinting towards stopping the antivirus before doing this.

Are you running McAfee? Please stop it and try.

Are you running this on the DC with the Schema Master role with an account that has Schema/Enterprise/Domain admin group membership?

I am running this on my primary domain controller which holds all of the FSMO roles for this network. I am using the domain admin account which is a member of the Schema admin, Enterprise admin, and Domain admin groups.

We are running Sophos as our antivirus, I will try stopping it and giving that a try, then I will post back.

Thank you for your responses so far!

In a similar Q on here in the past, the asking user, cwconley, responded with this:

"It was a permissions problem. The user account I was using was a member of some other groups besides the necessary ones. Once I removed the other groups, adprep ran fine."

That seems a little odd but might be worth a try.

If it fails, please post the log file adprep creates.   Good luck!

This was resolved by disabling Sophos and running adprep. Thank you for the help!
