The functional level could not be raised

Hi,

I have 2 DCs running on VM. They are setup for practice purpose, 70-640 Self-paced Chapter 10 Lesson 3: Configuring DFS Replication of SYSVOL.

Server01 is running 2008, Windows Server 2003 forest and domain functional levels, GC and DNS

Server02 is running 2008, as an additional DC in the same domain as SERVER01, Neither GC nor DNS.

Infrastructure master was transferred to SERVER02.

When i raise domain functional level to 2008 on SERVER01, i received an error:

The functional level could not be raised. The error is: The directory service is busy

However, SYSVOL replication is successfull, file in the SERVER01 SystemRoot\sysvol\Domain\scripts is replicated to SERVER02.

C:\Users\Administrator>repadmin /showrepl

I think that is more a technical question than a certification question. So maybe you try to ask in a technet forum about Active Directory for a solution?

(And sorry, I cannot help you. I am not an AD expert. I am a software developer so I cannot give you any better help on this.)

With kind regards,

Konrad
