ADprep /domainprep fails


J

Hello All,

I am preparing an SBS2000 server for upgrade. I ran adprep /
forestprep without error, but I cannot get /domainprep to complete.

The final portion of the log is:

------------------------------------------
Adprep was unable to modify the security descriptor on object
CN=User,CN={31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=rcco,DC=local.

[Status/Consequence]

ADPREP was unable to merge the existing security descriptor with the
new access control entry (ACE).

[User Action]

Check the log file Adprep.log in the system root System32\Debug\Adprep
\Logs directory for more information.

Adprep encountered an LDAP error.

Error code: 0x0. Server extended error code: 0x0, Server error
message: (null).



Adprep was unable to update domain-wide information.

[Status/Consequence]

Adprep requires access to existing domain-wide information from the
infrastructure master in order to complete this operation.

[User Action]

Check the log file, Adprep.log, in the C:\WINNT\system32\debug\adprep
\logs\20070826180815 directory for more information.
------------------------------------------------------------

Some measures I have tried or verified so far:

1. This is the only DC in the domain - it is the infrastructure
master
2. I have verified that the reg key defining sysvol location is
present and correct
3. I have verified that the "schema updates allowed" (or similar) box
is checked
4. I have checked that the default domain controller GPO security
policy "manage auditing and security log" lists administrators.
5. I am logged on as administrator, which is member of
Administrators, Domain Admins, Enterprise Admins, and Schema Admins


any thoughts?

thanks,
joe

Thanks Meinolf,

I'll have to go back through the info on the later version of adprep.
