downlevel domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 
    I am installing OCS 2007 in a domain in a multiple domain forest. There has already been a deployment of ocs 2007 in one of the domains. 
    However when I run the ocs 2007 deployment scanner it shows me that there is no need to update the schema, however it is looking to run Forest prep. I find this strange, is it not that you only are required to run Forest prep once? As ocs is already deployed in one of the domains in the forest why does it want to run forestprep again?

  • Hello,

    Its bit tricky, i have faced this problem in my lab.

    My problem was few of the ports which were required to communicate with root domain controllers were not opened. port 135 and 444. Please check with your network and probably this will resolve the issue. In the meantime, can you have look on the windows 2003 domain controllers (how it look like), i beleive it should show correctly.
