Does anyone know or have experience with running an adprep /forestprep on a windows 2000 DC to make it ready for a windows 2008 DC? How long does it take? I've been sitting here for 3 hours waiting. I have a feeling I could've just as well been in the comfort of my own home having a brew or two...

I know to do 2003 adprep on 2000 you had to load some hot fixes

Not sure about 2000/2008 but adprep only takes a few minutes for a single dc.

Hope you have a backup with system state.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Yeah there was some localised files messing things up so I didn't get the error message I should have... took me long enough to realise :)

Working now though.
