This is sort of a mixed question, so I apologize if it's in the wrong category.

My company is currently running a Domain Functional Level of Windows 2000
Native and a Forest Functional Level of Windows 2000.

I am trying to get our servers migrated over to Server 2003 R2 for
additional functionality, but unfortunately to create a 2003 R2 DC in this
environment it requires some additional adprep.

I can't seem to find any documentation on 2003 R2 and the additional AD
requirements to allow it to run in an environment (I'm still working on
getting the bosses to approve a full AD upgrade / migration from 2000).

Would anyone be able to provide some clarity on what is added into 2003 R2
that requires additional adprep to allow promotion to a DC?
