DC Promo of R2 in non-R2 Forest Fails

This is probably old news for most of you but if I can save one person the 10 minutes I lost this morning then I guess this blog is worth it. I've got a SBS 2003 SP1 on my network and I attempted to promote a Server 2003 R2 to a DC for redundancy sake (my backups are on an AD integrated NAS and I realized I would have no way to get my backups if my SBS crashed – Duh!). It seems that the SBS has to be R2 if I want to promo another R2 server. Now I know.
