HELP - Cannot add DC to existing domain...



I'm trying to add a secondary DC to my existing domain. The existing DC is
running W2k Server with SP4 and all patches. The new server is running W2003
Server R2 Standard edition with SP2 and all patches.

I have successfully run adprep /forestprep and adprep /domainprep on my W2K
server but I still am getting an error message that the forest is NOT

Error message:
"The Active Directory Installation Wizard cannot continue because the forest
is not prepared for installing Windows Server 2003. Use the Adprep
command-line tool to prepare both the forest and the domain. For more
information about using the Adprep, see Active Directory Help.

The version of the Active Directory schema of the source forest is not
compatible with the version of the Active Directory on this computer."

Any ideas what might be the issue here?




So I found out - the hard way! It would have been nice if MS had included
that little fact somewhere in the documentation...

Thanks Paul for your response.
