I'm running a clean, newly-configured Win2K member server and would like to promote it to DC along side (2) other DC's in the same domain. This is what's happening...
I run DCPROMO from the Run command and answer the first question ("Additional domain controller..."). The next screen comes up, but immediately gives me this message:
...This shutdown was initiated by NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
SHUTDOWN TIME: 00:60
THE SYSTEM PROCESS 'C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\SERVICE
TERMINATED UNEXPECTEDLY WITH STATUS CODE 128. THE SYSTEM
WILL NOW SHUTDOWN & RESTART.
This occurs every time, no fail. DNS has been setup properly (as seen in http://www.petri.co.il/create_a_new_dns_server_for_ad.htm
