DCpromo failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to add a second DC to my home lab, but it fails indicating I need to run adprep for the forest and domain.
    The environment had a second DC that failed, and I have today earlier run ntdsutil metadat cleanup from the first / root dc.
    All servers are windows 2003 SP2, and I am running patches to update all now.
    I can map drives and see the dc and other member servers from the new server which is 2003 R2 standard.  The root dc is 2003 EE (not R2) with SP2.  The file server is 2003EE sp2 also (member server).
    Any suggestions on what else to check / test to get dcpromo to work?
