    I am running this command on FSMO role owner, RID, PDC and infrastructure owner.
    I am running this on Windows server 2000 DC

    it holds FSMO role owner, RID, PDC and infrastructure owner.
    This server runnong on Service pack4.
    when i try to run the "adprep /forestprep, i am getting below error message.

    Before running adprep, all Windows 2000 domain controllers in the forest should
    be upgraded to Windows 2000 Service Pack 1 (SP1) with QFE 265089, or to Windows
    2000 SP2 (or later).
    QFE 265089 (included in Windows 2000 SP2 and later) is required to prevent poten
    tial domain controller corruption.
