I installed Win 2000 advanced server and then I try to install Active directory by using dcpromo command. At the end of Active directory installation a message appears that " Wizard cannot find DNS server that handles server.com to determine it supports dynamic date. Confirm your DNS configuration or Install and configure DNS server on this computer. I Choose install DNS now option . and click next and gets an error " The network location cannot be reached . For information about network troubleshooting see windows help" .
So I am unable to install Active directory.
FYI : I also have on same computer windows xp .

Hi concord2004,
Do you already have a DNS server setup or did AD attempt to install and configure one on that machine?
happy trails

Do you have a NIC card enabled and have you given your server a Static IP?

The NIC needs a static IP address. You need to power up the NIC card in order to install DNS. Plug it into a hub or switch or into another machine with a crossover cable.

If you can't do this then read the technet article on microsoft.com: How to Disable Media Sense for TCP/IP in Windows: Q239924
