We have mainly W2k3/W2k3R2 domain controllers with one W2k domain controller
left. I have transferred the FSMO rolses, removed manually created
replication partners and switched the server off. I wanted to leave the
server off for a while rather than demoting straight away incase of problems.
After two or three days we started getting problems with group policies not
applying correctly and when typing in \\domainname\netlogon on ocassion a
message would appear saying not found, after a few attempts I would be able
to get access. I have now restarted the W2k server in the hope that the
problems go away. Is there anything else I should have done before switching
of the W2k machine. I checked netdiag from the two new DCs prior to shutting
down W2k and everything seemed fine.

Thanks in advance.

Pete.

If you migrate from win 2000 to win 2003 or 2008 you need to run adprep
/gpprep to update permissions on gpo's (On the IM).

Did you do that?

Hello PeteL,

I agree with Paul, please check/run "adprep /domainprep /gprep" without the
quotes on the Infrastructure master.

Best regards

Thank you both for your response.

We have recently taken over support for this network so the W2k, W2k3 and
one W2k3R2 domain controllers were already in place. Should I run 'adprep
/domainprep /gpprep' anyway? I have checked the Schema Version and this is 31
which according to Microsoft is W2k3R2.

Hello PeteL,

It is not a problem to run it a second time even it was done before. You
can also check the adprep.log under windows\system32\debug\adprep\logs
