Adding a 2k3 R2 x64 to an existing 2k3 R1 x32 Domain as (B)DC

Discussion in 'Active Directory' started by Alexander Gruel, Dec 10, 2007.

  1. Hello, we are currently trying to integrate another DC to our network.

    The setup is currently a Win2k3 R1 x86 (SP1) Server as DC

    We are now trying to add a Win2k3 R2 x64 Server as (Backup) DC to the existing
    Setup and are getting a "Version mismatch" error while trying. We are now
    not sure if this is a problem concerning R1/R2 or x86/x64.

    Is it possible to add an x64 server to an existing x86 infrastructure?

    Is it possible to add an R2 server to an existing R1 infrastructure? If not,
    is there any way to "upgrade" the R1 to R2 without re-installing and
    re-creating the AD in its entirety?

    Thanx in Advance,
    Alexander Gruel

    Go to MS site download the CD2 version for x86, run the schema update on the
    x86 system, then you're ready to add the new x64 R2 server.

    I hope that the information above helps you.
    Have a Nice day.
