Hello,

Just preparing my W2K3 AD schema for W2K8 DC's. I did this in my test lab
and everything seems ok. Upgraded AD schema in production and when reviewing
the ADPrep.logs my log when I did /domainprep /gpprep is different than in my
test environment. The log file from the test environment is bigger and I can
see it upgrading GPO's, but in the production log I don't see any GPO's being
upgraded. Log says everything was ok. I've attached the logs below. Is there
anything wrong witht the production environment? Maybe because I run GPMC in
production the GPO's are already upgraded (just a guess). Here are the steps
I ran for both environments...

adprep32.exe /forestprep
adprep32.exe /domainprep
adprep32.exe /domainprep /gpprep

[snipped]

Do you see any event log errors? If so, please post the eventID and Source.
How many domains?
How many DCs are in your domain?
Sites?
Are any DCs multihomed, meaning they have more than one NIC and/or have RRAS
installed? (If so, that can be problematic).
How are the DNS addresses on the DCs? Do they point to themselves as the
first entry, and another DC/DNS in the same site as the second entry?
(That's the recommendation).

gpprep is not needed to be run on a 2003 domain. This was meant for upgrade
from 2000.

No errors in event logs
1 forest/domain
2 dc's that are also dns/ias/dhcp/gc
Not multihomed and no RRAS
DNS - Yes both DC's are setup to point to them selves for Primary DNS and
the second entry points to the other DC.

See if the following two links help.

The following was quoted from:
http://blogs.technet.com/askds/archive/2008/12/15/troublesho oting-adprep-errors.aspx

====================
Errors Running Adprep /Domainprep:

If you have already run Adprep domain prep, there is really only one error
that you can get. When you run the Adprep /Domainprep /Gpprep after you have
done the normal Domainprep you are only setting permissions on the policies
folder. Below is the error that you will receive if they are inaccessible.

Group Policies Missing Or Inaccessible

Adprep was unable to complete because the call back function failed.

[Status/Consequence]

Error message: (null)

[User Action]

Check the log file ADPrep.log, in the
C:\WINDOWS\debug\adprep\logs\20080806171216 directory for more information

Solution:
Check to make sure that your sysvol\sysvol\policies\{6ac…………..} and
{31b…………….} folders exist and are accessible. If either or both are missing
and you have a backup of these folders, restore the folders. If you do not
have a backup and the folders are not in an NTFRS_Policies folder, then
contact Microsoft for assistance in recreating the folders.
===========================


Also the following was quoted from:
Scenarios for Installing AD DS
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc771433(WS.10).aspx
======
Note
If you prepare a Windows Server 2003 domain by running adprep /domainprep
/gpprep, you can safely disregard the error message that indicates that
domain updates were not necessary.

Also, which DC did you run the /gpprep on? It has to be run on the DC
holding the IM role.

Basically the gpprep just resets permissions on the default GPO folders in
Sysvol, provided the Default Domain Policy and the Default Domain
Controllers GPO were not altered.

Ace gpprep is only necessary when going from Win2K not from W2K3. I have
read that when doing the /gpprep on a 2003 it will generate errors (In the
log file) since all the permissions have already been performed when going
from 2000 to 2003. But of course I can't find the documentation to back it
up. It doesn't hurt anything it just sends you error messages that make a
user nervous that something didn't work correctly.

I agree and remember the same thing, but I couldn't find any reference to it
either, other than it's not needed or it gives a message such as (can't
remember the exact one), that it's already been run.
