Hi, can anyone help. I have been trying to upgrade our win 2000 DC to
2003. I have followed the guidelines from microsoft. I have managed to
upgrade Exchange to 2003 but when I try to upgrade the OS i get the
following error:


"Setup has detected that the active directory domain needs to be
prepared for the windows server 2003."

I have run the adprep /domainprep that the install seems to be wanting
but still it complains of this problem.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Nick
