Promoting Server 2012 in a 2003 Domain
Posted on 2014-04-15
I have a Windows 2003 SBS domain that was running active directory at Windows 2000 level. I will be retiring the 2003 server and replacing it with a 2012 server.
I have joined the 2012 server to the domain. Performed a forest prep and domain prep and raised the active directory level to 2003.
I am unable to promote the 2012 server to a DC. It gives me the error that the domain is still at the 2000 level. I have rebooted both of the machines, there are no other DCs on the domain.
Is there something I am missing?
