Currently we are running Win2k3 SP1, R2, SP2, Win2k8 Beta3, RC0, RC1, and RTM Escrow idomain controllers in production... Since we're running some downlevel servers in the environment and I was interested in what is supported to be upgraded to Windows 2008 when we sign off and the the DVDs start getting pressed. Luckily a mail came by on one of our discussion aliases that has the details I (we) desire.
Upgrading Active Directory Domains to Windows Server 2008 AD DS Domains

How about upgrading from Server 2008 RC0 to RTM in a single domain controller environment? I've been testing Server 2008 in a limited test network with 4 PC's and a single Domain Controller as the only server. I had some issues upgrading from the beta to RC0, and ended up having to re-crete the test domain. I'm hoping the upgrade from RC0 to final will be a bit smoother.
Should be more smooth. The gap between beta3 and RC0 was long (8 monhts or more?) and there were a ton of fixes put in between those times.
I dont know if RC0 --> RTM is offically supported though.

i m trying to upgrade from 2000 based domain to 2008 domain. 2000 domain is in native mode. when i run adprep /domainprep /gpprep, installatio failed with error: adprep detected that domain is not in native mode.
when i try to run dcpromo on 2008 to make it ADC, setup also fails there with the error: plz run adprep /domainprep. don't know what's the problem.
Thanks in advance.
Manoj, you might want to check out: http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver2008/en/library/9c91be5f-df14-40b2-b176-2b1852a51e611033.mspx?mfr=true
It was actually domain mode issue. Domain was in mixed mode event though during domain creation i selected native option. i was not able to find how to change domain functional level in windows 2000. It is not alike windows 2003. I right click on domain name, general tab and click on change mode and it worked. after that i ran the domainprep /gpprep command and it worked fine.
Thanks for your support.
Good to hear Manoj.
