Win2000 to Win2k3 Migration

    Hello all,

    I would like to say first that I am currently upgrading
    my 8 servers to Win2k3 from Win2k. The 8 servers are 1.
    File and Print 2. Domain Controller and Exchange 2000 3.
    Proxy server 4. Secondary (backup) Domain Contoller and
    Software repository 5. Backup, Virus Control and VPN
    server 6. and 7. Citrix Metaframes (to be converted into
    Win2k3 servers for other uses) 8. Webserver.
    I have upgraded all so far except the main domain
    controller (DC) and the backup DC. My problem is not so
    much with the migration (although I did have MAJOR issues
    with the upgrade, but that's another story) but with a
    service that seems to be either corrupt or failing at
    startup. I wasn't sure which forum to post in. Anyway,
    the backup DC has a fresh copy of Win2k3 on it and has
    had Active Directory removed from it to allow it to be
    AdPrepped (a whole other issue). The trouble is when I
    boot it up, you can ping it while it is loading it's
    settings, then at the point of applying computer settings
    or some where around there, it loses it's connectivity
    (doesn't respond to ping, can't be contacted by the
    network at all). Then when Windows starts up it says "At
    least one event failed on startup" etc. Then I login and
    get a fatal error saying that tcpsvcs.exe has caused an
    error and will need to be closed. "... reporting queued
    error. Faulting application tcpsvcs.exe version
    5.2.3790.0...." etc. This error occurs 4 times. I close
    the 4 error windows and then nothing works. When I try to
    ping it it says "Requtest timed out" and when I ping the
    default gateway from the backup DC it says "Destination
    unreachable" Something is definately corrupt with the
    tcpsvcs.exe service on startup. Any ideas on what it
    could be? Or how to fix it, it's rather urgent as I only
    have another week to complete the entire upgrade, any
    help would be appreciated. I have tried copying another
    copy of tcpsvcs.exe, reinstalling network card drivers
    (3Com Gigabit Server NIC Sx/Tx), stopping and starting
    services, uninstalling and reinstalling networking
    components in Add/Remove programs, scanned system files
    for integrity using System File Checker, uninstalled IPv6
    (as one forum post suggested), I'm all out of ideas! Why
    would it just fail? Corrupted registry setting maybe ?
    Please help!!

  2. Hi Jaime ,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    Do you mean that you only have one DC in the domain now? Did you have ever
    backuped the DC?

    If so, I recommend that you perform a restore from the backup to original
    Windows 2000 domain status.

    After you restore the domain, please refer to the following documents to
    upgrade Windows 2000 domain to Windows 2003 domain.
