Hotfix installation informationThis hotfix contains a schema update to rename the earlier schema attributes. This action lets you update Active Directory for Windows Server 2003 R2. To apply this hotfix, follow these steps:
- Extract the two files from this hotfix package to a folder on one of the following computers:
- The Windows Server 2003-based computer on which Windows Services for UNIX 2.0 is installed
- The Windows 2000-based server on which Services for UNIX 2.0 is installed
- Run the Schema Tool (Idmschupg.exe) to make the appropriate changes to the schema.
Note You must run this from the command-line window. After you have extracted the files, open a command prompt, and change the directory to the location where you extracted the two files. For example, the two files may be extracted to the following location:C:\temp\Idmschupg.exeThen, run the tool. When you are prompted to enter C, type C. This is case-sensitive. If you type a lowercase c, the tool will close without running.
Note You must run this tool on a Windows Server 2003-based computer that has Windows Services for UNIX 2.0 installed or on a Windows 2000-based computer that has Windows Services for UNIX 2.0 installed. You must run this tool before you prepare Active Directory for Windows Server 2003 R2.
This tool converts the CN to the new schema specifications. This conversion enables Active Directory to prepare for the upgrade to Windows Server 2003 R2.
