Im in the process of promoting a windows 2012 r2 standard within a 2003 domain and during promotion to a domain controller when it was running adprep, it  got error that referencing wmi.  This is the first 2012 server introduced into the domain which is running 2 2003 domain controllers and 2 2008 member servers so there are no 2008 domain controllers only the 2003 which I want to remove eventually if I can get the new 2012 to extend the schema.  I am attaching the log file from c:\windows\debug\adprep\logs.  The good thing is the server recognizes the other servers on network.  Thanks.
