Error while trying to upgrade to a Windows 2003 R2 domain

Dear all,

I'm trying to upgrade a Windows 2000 Server domain to Windows Server 2003
R2. While I'm running the command adprep /forestprep in the 2nd CD to
upgrade the Windows 2000 domain controller, I get the following error:

Add error on line 1327: Unwilling To Perform
The server side error is "Schema update failed: attribute in may-contain
does not exist."
84 entries modified successfully.
An error has occurred in the program
ERROR: Import from file C:\WINNT\system32\sch31.ldf failed. Error file is
saved in ldif.err.31.



In the ldif.err.31 file it appears the following text:

Entry DN: CN=IpProtocol,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=ederfil,DC=local
Add error on line 1327: Unwilling To Perform
The server side error is "Schema update failed: attribute in may-contain
does not exist."
An error has occurred in the program


Additionally, the ADPrep.log file showed a text stating that Adprep
correctly verified if Windows Services for Unix where installed or not, and
that it verified that hotfix Q293783 was not applied.

The Windows 2000 DC has Windows Services for Unix v3.0 installed, and so
several hotfixes available from Microsoft, such as 919938 and 293783, which
apply for Windows Services for Unix v2.0, are not useful here, as far as I
know (anyway I applied them, but to no avail).

I have tried upgrading Windows Services for Unix up to version 3.5, but
still I cannot apply the sch31.ldf upgrade.

Has any of you encountered a similar problem? Is there any additional hotfix
I could try? Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Best regards,
Jose Luis.

Hello CAC.MCCTELECOM,

Has the 2000 DC SP4 and all latest patches installed? Is exchange installed
on the DC?

Best regards

Hello, Menolf.

Thank you very much for your fast reply. Yes, the 2000 DC has SP4 installed,
and all the latest patches available from windowsupdate.microsoft.com.

The question about Exchange is a good point. The DC has Exchange 2000
installed, and therefore we had to apply the fix for InetOrgPerson before
being able to upgrade to sch30.ldf. Are there any additional fixes I ought
to have considered?

Best regards,
Jose Luis.

Hello, Menolf.

Sorry about the delay in reporting back... :-(

We have already checked that the changes were applied correctly, the
attributes msExchAssistantName, msExchLabeledURI and msExchHouseIdentifier
are correctly displayed in ADSIEdit... Anything else we need to check? Do
you think that this issue could be SFU-related?

Thank you very much for your assistance.

Best regards,
Jose Luis.

Hello, Meinolf.

Hm, no Cisco Call Manager installed on the domain controller, but we've got
Windows Services for Unix (SFU) v3.0.

While googling for the error:

Add error on line 1327: Unwilling To Perform
The server side error is "Schema update failed: attribute in may-contain
does not exist.

we found that SFU v2.0 had a hotfix, available from
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/293783. Unfortunately, this hotfix is only
for SFU v2.0, and the version installed in the domain controller is v3.0.
The hotfix does not allow to be installed over SFU v3.0.

Out of desperation, we even tried to install SFU v3.5, but that didn't fix
the problem.

Anything else we could try?

Best regards,
Jose Luis.

Hello CAC.MCCTELECOM,

No idea, sorry. Think about to talk to MS support, especially with the UNIX
part, maybe it is known.
