Hi

We have just bought an additional server for our Windows 2000 domain
and would like to upgrade our domain to a Windows 2003 domain as a
result of this I have tried to run Adprep /forestprep on my schema
master but this has failed.

I have enabled changes to the schema and also changed the records in
the active directory but when I run forest prep I get the following
error.

Connecting to "dcmail1.reflexdata.co.uk"
Logging in as current user using SSPI
Importing directory from file "inetorgpersonprevent.ldf"
Loading entries
1:
CN=ms-Exch-Assistant-Name,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=REFLEXDATA,DC=CO.UK

Add error on line 1: Referral
The server side error is "A referral was returned from the server."
0 entries modified successfully.
An error has occurred in the program

C:\WINNT\IOP>ldifde -i -f inetorgpersonprevent.ldf -v -c DC=X
"DC=reflexdata,DC=
co.uk"
Connecting to "dcmail1.reflexdata.co.uk"
Logging in as current user using SSPI
Importing directory from file "inetorgpersonprevent.ldf"
Loading entries
1:
CN=ms-Exch-Assistant-Name,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=reflexdata,DC=co.uk

Add error on line 1: Referral
The server side error is "A referral was returned from the server."
0 entries modified successfully.
An error has occurred in the program

Can anybody please help me as I am going cross eyed searching the web.

Thanks

Anthony

I think the problem is: DC=REFLEXDATA,DC=CO.UK

I think it should be: DC=REFLEXDATA,DC=CO,DC=UK

I assume you are fixing the schema by implementing the Inetorgfix?

the command line should be:

ldifde -i -f <LDIF file> -v -c DC=X "DC=REFLEXDATA,DC=CO,DC=UK" -s <FQDN
schema master>
