Active Directory domain services installation wizard

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


I am doing a test migration from SBS 2003 to Win 2008. I have run adprep /forest prep and adprep /domain prep on the SBS server. I have raise domain and exchange functionality. All this has gone fine. I have joined the 2008 64 bit server to the domain.

But in the last stages of DC promo on the new 2008 server I get the message

Active Directory Domain Services Installation Wizard

You will not be able to install a read-only domain controller in this domain because "adprep/rodcprep" was not yet run.

Do you want to continue?

My question is, if I run adprep/rodprep on the old SBS server, can I seize the FSMO roles on the 2008 server later on, when I turn off the SBS server?

Please help.

Thank you.
