I am migrating from win2003 sp2 to win2008 sp2 using a microsoft migrating the AD DS and DNS server roles doc. The end result will be the new server has the same name and ip as the old server.

On step 2 of the doc it want me to ensure the new server (server2) has the same enumerated diretory partitions as server1. Server1 has

DomainDnsZone.mydomain.us Enlisted Auto Domain
ForestDnsZone.mydomain.us Enlisted Auto Forest

However when I issue this command on Server2

dnscmd /enlistdirectorypartition ForestDnsZone.mydomain.us
the command failes with: Error_Access_Denied 5

My user is a enterprise, domain, & dns admin in AD.

I found a internet doc from a microsoft guy that Win2008 RC0 had a quirky change that was later changed again in RC1. He said I needed to use the FQDN for the server (I presume)

However I get the same error with the following command.

dnscmd server1.mydomain.us /enlistdirectorypartition ForestDnsZone.mydomain.us

I do not know if I understand partitions well enough to proceed with the migration. Any thoughts?

thanks

I happened to see the same error with DNSCMD this week, I had to open an elevated cmd prompt (right-click cmd, Run as Administrator) and then it worked. Could be as simple as that.
