I am attempting to upgrade from a Windows 2003 R2 DC to a Windows 2012 R2. I ran DCpromo on the 2012 server and keep getting "The file replication service cannot be stopped". I cannot start FRS on the 2012 server and I followed the procedure to disable to FRS service on the 2003 server. Anyone know where the problem exist?

Have you rebooted the Win2012 DC.Why are you disabling FRS on Win2003.Can you post the dcdiag /q output of Win2012 DC.Check the FRS log for any errors and warning and post the same.

Actually, I had to reboot the 2003 server, then the dcpromo worked. Thanks
