New 2003 R2 DC DS Errors
I've just promoted a new 2003 R2 DC into our domain and am receiving lots of messages in the Directory Sservice log when it starts up, i've found a couple of posts about this being specific to R2 but i don't get it on my other R2 DC's that were upgraded from 2003 Standard SP1. All DC's are now at SP2 and R2.
Has anyone else seen this.
Here is a reply i found which seems to explain it i'm just curious if anyone else has seen it and also the info might come in handy for others in future.
Event 1181 Active Directory could not delete the following column from the
database because it is being used by an index. This column was
previously used by the following attribute, which has been deleted.
The scenario is as follows:
An existing w2k3 forest, at w2k3 forest level;
Run R2 adprep to upgrade the schema etc;
dcpromo a R2 DC into the forest;
The events occur on the R2 DC, but not on other DCs.
Ideally, these abandoned columns should get removed. But Microsoft didn’t for
reason and report this event instead.
This is not a concern at all. The events are annoying.
This should be fixed in Windows Server 2008

Guessing its a "feature" of 2003 R2 then
Short of manuially deleting the tables in the schema (i wouldnt recommend it unless you know what your doing!) I'd just go with the advise and leave it alone
Unless other issues arrise later!

As i only see the errors (well information entries not really errors) in the log at boot up i think i'll leave messing with the schema for now
