dcdiag errors and will they affect my ability to replace 2003 PDC with a 2012 R2 server

We just got a 2012 R2 server and will be using it to replace the 2003 PDC. This environment has a single 2003 server which will be replaced by the new 2012 R2 Server
When I run dcdiag I get a few errors (see attachment) in regards to System log. Will this affect my ability to introduce the new server, which will include adding the Active Directory Services Role, promoting it to be the DC and moving all the FMSO roles.

Basically a complete replacement of the 2003 server. I don't thing the system log errors would affect this but I thought I'd check with the experts.

Thanks in advance

Events in the system log will always appear even if they are not relavent. So make sure you check those events carefully.

However, this should not be a dependancy for introducing a new 2012 DC. All you need to do it prep the domain (which is now down automaticallly) and then promote your DC. So preping the domain is the prep-req and ensuring good replication is a must.

If you replicaiton is good and the events on the DC are not related to AD then you will have no issues promoting the 2012 DC.
