I have a domain controller that is running Windows 2003 R2 x64 and am trying
to add a Windows 2003 R2 x86 but when I run dcpromo it tells me it cannot
joing as the source forest ad is different then the destination forest ad but
this server is a memeber of the same forest and domain? Is it something else?

I should of used the search feature on this site :) I need to run it from
disk 2. Sorry for posting without doing my homework lol.

To update the schema, on the schema master domain controller, insert Disc 2
and open the command prompt. Then, change to the Cmpnents\R2\Adprep folder of
Disc 2, and type: adprep.exe /forestprep

Hi JC
Glad you solved and glad you did a search, that is a very very common
question here, but people do not often try to search in existing posts.
