Mr. Baz
 
I have a 2003 SBS Server that is the PDC and has all 5 FSMO roles. It is also the Global Catalog.
I have a 2000 server that is a Domain Controller as well.

I'm wanting to add a new 2003 Standard server as a Domain Controller. Is this possible?

This is what I get when I run dcpromo:


I've run adprep /forestprep
and
adprep /domainprep /gprep

but I still get the same error message.

When you ran adprep /forestprep, you ran it on the actual DC that holds all the FSMO roles, right?

MAKE SURE you use the "adprep" off the R2 disk not the standard W2K SP1 OR the SBS disks.

Just to reiterate you can have as MANY DC's in an SBS network as you wish - well actually only 75 as each one will consume a CAL.

And just to add my 2 cents worth, the Adprep for Windows 2003 Server R2 is on Disk 2 is in the CMPNENTS\R2\ADPREP folder. It is interesting to note that the file on Disk 2 is 4K larger and has an earlier date stamp to the Adprep.exe file in the i386 folder on Disk 1. The documentation I read refered to the Disk 2 adprep and made no mention of the file in the i386 folder on Disk 1.

correct. I ran adprep on the SBS Server (has all 5 FSMO roles and is Global Catalog) using the 2003 Standard Server R2 CD.

edit: wait, that article said to use Disc 2....AH HA. Lemmie go try that.

edit2: OH snap. I think that did it.
edit3: For an 11k, you ain't too bad.

As far as I'm aware, you can only have 1 server in an SBS environment...

As old as that crap is (you upgraded to 2000, then to 2003?), I say whipe and reload from scratch would be quicker. Have everyone's mailbox exported to a pst. Backup your pub1.edb and priv1.edb just to be on the safe side.

edit: check out my post in your thread
