I'm having trouble adding a new server to an AD domain. There are four servers on the network, all are Windows 2003 Enterprise. Two were domain controllers. One DC crashed. All references to it were removed from AD and a new server was buit. When trying to add it as a DC using dcpromo wizard we see:
The Wizard is configuring Active Directory
Located comain controller server1.mydomain.com
Examining an existing Active Directory Forest
After a moment we get the error:
The operation failed because: This Active Directory installation requires domain configuration changes, but whether these changes have been made on the domain controller server1.mydomain.com is undetermined. The installation process has quite. "The system cannot find the file specified".
We though it might be because we named the replacement serve the same name as the one we removed. So we renamed the server and tried again with the same results. This is after a fresh install on a blank drive on this server. I assume there are some permission problems somewhere in AD, but have no way to verify this or know where to look. Awhile back we made changes to some impersonation settings, but they should all be back where they belong.
