Hello I have a domain with an unique DC is a 2003 R2 32bit, the Forest and Domain level is 2003.

I have joined a 2012 server to the domain.

I want to elevate the 2012 server as Domain Controller.

I have inserted the 2012 DVD in the 2003R2 machine to perform the "adprep /forestprep" but when I run the command I get the error:

the image file adprep is valid but is for a diferent kink of machine.

What is the problem?

Thanks
