Windows Server 2008 R2 Active Directory Schema Update

  • System Notes: Various Domain Controller Hardware, Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard

Recently, I have completed several Active Directory domain upgrades for various organizations.  Everyone seems to finally be moving away from Windows Server 2003 and to Windows Server 2008 R2.  For reference purposes, or for those who are curious, below are sample outputs from one of the upgrades, for the various schema upgrade commands.  This is the main online article I referenced for these routines.

  1. adprep /forestprep
  2. adprep /rodcprep
  3. adprep /domainprep

Additional Notes:

The example Active Directory schema update was for a domain running the Windows Server 2003 R2 schema extensions.  The adprep /rodcprep is not strictly required, but I generally do it regardless of whether or not the client is currently using Read-Only Domain Controllers, as those will then be a future option with no additional Active Directory preparation required.
