2000 Domain, just promoted new 2003 DC into domain, and 2003 dc will not open DNS
Posted on 2004-10-08
Ok, I have a single forest, single tree single domain environment with one AD DC running windows 2000 SP4. I am adding a second DC into the domain that will be running 2k3. I ran the 2k3 forest prep with no errors, then ran the domain prep with not errors. Ran dcpromo and joined the current 2000 domain with a 2k3 DC. Installed DNS, and everytime I open Dns it says it cannot connect to the server. So basically it cannot connect to its self, but i can connect to the 2000 dns server from the same 2k3 dns console window? Uninstalled and reinstalled DNS with the same results.
I am going to install Exchange 2003 on the new 2003 DC once this is resolved.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
