    "Hotfixes to install before you run adprep /Forestprep on a Windows 2000 domain controller to prepare the Forest and domains for the addition of Windows Server 2003-based domain controllers"

    it says:

    Preventative fix: . Service Pack: Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 (SP2) or later
    .. Hotfix in article 303077

    so I decided to see what 303077 had to say. It says this:

    "The Knowledge Base (KB) Article You Requested Is Currently Not Available"

    So what's the story here? Thanks.

    Hi George,

  3. Yes SP4 working pretty good. I could look in the $Uninstall(Hotfix#) directories in C:\WINNT but that won't explain what that hotfix was addressing. I suppose I am fine but I'd prefer to know I am than not. I just have real trouble with new technology having broken documentation.

    Articles that you refer to in your post apply only to Windows 2000 running
    SP1 and SP2.

    I upgraded a lot of domain this year and never had any problems -- all
    domain controllers were running Windows 2000 SP4.
