Completing the Upgrade

Updated: March 28, 2003

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

Complete the following tasks to finalize the process:

  • Review, update, and document the domain architecture to reflect any changes that you made during the domain upgrade process.

  • Verify that the NETLOGON and SYSVOL shared folders exist and that the File Replication Service (FRS) is functioning without error by checking the Event Viewer.

  • Verify that Group Policy is being applied successfully by checking the application log in Event Viewer for Event ID 1704.

  • Verify that all SRV, CNAME, and A resource records have been registered in DNS.

  • Continuously monitor your domain controllers and Active Directory. Using a monitoring solution such as Microsoft® Operations Manager to monitor the distributed Active Directory service and the services that it relies on helps maintain consistent directory data and a consistent level of service throughout the forest.

After these tasks have been completed successfully, you will have completed the in-place upgrade process.
