Ad upgrade

Hi All,

We have three domain controllers (1 - Server 2008 R2 and 2 - Server 2008). Our domain and Forest levels are Server 2008.

We are in the process of introducing Server 2016 as domain controller. When I run adprep /Forestprep from server 2016 iso on our PDC Server 2008 R2, I keep getting the following error. I have added my account to Enterprise and Schema admins groups. Has anyone come across this issue?

Adprep detected that the supplied or default user is not a member of the followi
ng group: Enterprise Admins group and Schema Admins group.
[Status/Consequence]
Adprep has stopped without making changes.
[User Action]
Verify the user is a member of Enterprise Admins group and Schema Admins group.

While Seth is correct, when you added your account to those groups, did you log off and log on?  Adding yourself to those groups does not update the security token - that's set at logon.  You need to log off and on again for Windows and (likely that process) to know you are a member of that group.

you don't run adprep anymore; deprecated since 2012
when you add the role, it will prepare the schema automatically as needed

So I don't need to run adprep for Forest, Domain and grouppolicy?

yes, that was the second part of the issue before i got distracted
you need to be part of those 2 groups to add the role

So I don't need to run adprep for Forest, Domain and grouppolicy?
