We are using windows server 2003 and computers that are only a year or two old are showing up in AD as windows pre-2000 computers. Is there any way to correct the issue? These computers are running XP pro, vista and the beta windows 7rc operating systems.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The problem may be that you are in mixed-node in AD to be compatible with older platforms. If you no longer have old platforms, then I would change it to native mode.
