ERROR PROMOTING A 200 SERVER TO A DC IN A 2000 DOMAIN
Posted on 2004-08-27
I'm trying to set up a test server that will replicate and provide fault tolerance for my PDC (Another 2000 server) which currently is the only server on my child domain.
I got the following error when I tried to DCPROMO the second Windows 2000 sever to a DC on the child domain.
The error I received reads:
The operation failed because:
The Directory Service failed to create the server object for CN=NTDS Settings, CN=TESTSRV, CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name, CN=Sites, CN=Configuration, DC=ad,DC=msu,DC=edu on server aghall91110.fcs.msu.edu. Please ensure the network credentials provided have sufficient access to add a replica.
"Coul not find the domain controller for this domain."
The domain credentials I provided were for the administrator of the domain.
Is there something else I need to do? So I need to turn on any FSMO roles?
Take into account my domain is a child domain inside of a huge forest and I use the DNS server of the forest.
\That may not matter but I'm just trying to give you a full picture.
