Failed to add a domain controller in a existent domain
Posted on 2004-09-09
I have win2k domain. DNS is configured in this server.
Now i want to add one more server as additional domain controller(ADC) DNS client configurations are configured in this server but while during dcpromo after giving the
domain name, database location, log location, Sysvol location.
Error message recieved is
"The operation failed
The Directory service failed to create a Server object for CN=NTDS settings, CN=srv-alpinchalet, CN=SERVERS,CN=FIRST SITE NAME, CN=SITE,CN=CONFIGURATION,DC=GROSSET-JANIN,DC=COM.On the server serveur-nt.grosset-janin.fr Please. ensure the network credentials provided have sufficient access to add a replica"
"unable to find a domain controller for this domain"
In my Event viewer of DC that I wanna add I am getting the following error message.
Event ID. - 1125 (NTDS Replication error)
"Unable to etablish the connection with the server serveur-nt.grosset-janin.fr. error 1908"
But the connection is good because the computer account is added to active directory users and groups and I have the new server in active directory sites and services but it fails to create the NTDS Object.
And I can ping without problem the dns name of the main server from the new one.
Can anyone help in this.
