Recently purchased a 2003 Standard R2 64 Bit server from Dell, wanted to add
this into our network as a backup domain controller.  Following the
directions to run adprep on our primary domain controller (2003 standard
SP1), it gives me a msg stating that the image for adprep is valid, but is
for a machine type other than the current machine.  Is this due to the fact
that this CD is for 64 bit machines?  The primary DC is roughly 2-3 years
old, also from Dell.  If this is the problem, please advise how can I adprep
the primary DC to R2 so I can add this new server?

Thanks in advance.
