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

You will need to build a new 2003 server and join it to the domain. Then run dcpromo from run. You will be prompted to extend the schema to support server 2003 if this has not ben done before. You can find information <a href=”http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc773360.aspx”>here</a> about using adprep to extend the schema

    Just like Spadaso says that's correct. You have to setup a new 2003 server with all required components, add to domain, run dcpromo, etc. Regards Andrew
