I recently ran the adprep /forestprep and adprep /domainprep on a windows 2000 domain controller. It s the only domain controller on the network.

I then joined windows 2003 R2 server to the domain as an additional domain controller to the existing domain. The operation failed during the replication stage. The reason given was that the forest was not ready for windows 2003 R2 domain controllers. I had to run the adprep commands.

I ran the adprep commands as per microsoft article KB325379. I ran the commands successfully. It came as a suprise to me when I tried to promote a Windows 2003 R2 server and got the 'Operation failed' error.

Please help
