    I'd like to know how I can promote an existing W2K3 SP1 member server
    running serving also as a print/DHCP server. But our AD structure is W2K3
    R2 based.

    I don't think dcpromo will work on the w2k3 member server. If memory
    serves, I read somewhere that I need to run forestprep from the W2K3 R2 disc
    on the member server first? Is this correct?

    I'd appreciate your response.
