Follow Up on Windows Server 2003 R2 Schema

The issue I described in my original post regarding upgrading the schema to support Windows Server 2003 R2 as a domain controller is getting more attention.

Jorge de Almeida Pinto, a Windows Server MVP, has created his own blog entry about the need to use ADPrep.exe from the second CD, and has also pointed out that Microsoft has created a Knowledge Base article about the problem as well:

Error message when you run the Active Directory Installation Wizard: “The version of the Active Directory schema of the source forest is not compatible with the version of Active Directory on this computer” <http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=917385>

Have a look at Jorge’s full weblog entry, as he lists some other helpful information as well.
