Server 2012 ADprep hung
Posted on 2014-04-11
We are in the process of setting up a brand new domain controller at one of our sites.
This is the first 2012 server we have setup here.
But during the DCpromo the wizard has gotten stuck "Upgrading forest" for the past 12 hours.
The ADprep log shows the following entry:
Adprep verified the state of operation cn=016f23f7-077d-41fa-a356-de7cfdb01797,cn=Operations,cn=ForestUpdates,CN=Configuration,DC=pharmacy,DC=local.
The operation has not run or is not currently running. It will be run next.
Dated from over 12 hours ago.
But we can't cancel or close the wizard.
What can we do to safely stop it?
