After forestprep for Windows 2008, OCS shows as requiring forest prep again RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    OCS is running well with multiple pools etc.

    However I was a bit alarmed to see it reporting that the prep forest is required again.

    This seems to follow forest prep for windows 2008

     

    Has anyone else come accross this and what would you recommend doing?

     

    Thanks for any advice

  • It appears that you get to run OCS forest prep again:

    "If you have an existing Windows Server 2003 forest running Office Communications Server, and upgrade any of its domain controllers to Windows Server 2008, Office Communications Server will not work correctly; some UI elements will disappear, and you will be unable to add more Office Communication Server servers or pools. To resolve this issue, you simply reissue the command to prep the Active Directory forest for Office Communications Server.

    To do so using the user interface, use the Prep Forest option of the deployment tool (for more information, see “Running Prep Forest” in the Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 Active Directory Guide)."
