We are a small ISP upgrading the 4 servers from NT to W2K. The former PDC was blown away and a fresh W2K server software was installed. AD was installed and the DNS is setup with about 20 entries each having SOA, NS, Mail Ex. and host(A) records.
The BDC was then "upgraded" and at the AD installation portion of the upgrade "Make a domain controller" selection was chosen. However the error message I get relates to either not locating the AD Domain Controller or AD was not installed on the PDC.
The FQDN for the W2k PDC is xyz.net and the NetBIOS name is xyz. I can ping the PDC from the BDC but the BDC does not recognize it through this installation.
I had to remove the "ROOT" or . entry in the DNS of the PDC otherwise I could not access the Internet. Please help...
