    Hi everyone !

    Did someone point me to docs to do an in-place upgrade of Active
    Directory/Server from Windows 2008 Server to R2.

    Thank you !

  4. Windows Server 2008 R2 supports more "features" than Windows Server 2008. To
    promote a Windows Server 2008 R2 domain controller, you need to update the
    schema version according.

    You need to run the following command to on your DC to update Schema

    adprep /forestprep on the schema operations master
    adprep /domainprep on the infrastructure operations master
    adprep /domainprep /gpprep on the infrastructure operations master

    For more information about Adprep on Windows Server 2008 R2, please refer
