I would like to add another domain controller into my existing domain controller. So on my new server, I went with
"DC Promo" and next, next, next. By the way I supplied with the administrator credentials on the existing machine,

But then it gives me the following error:
The operation failed because: The Active Directory Installation Wizard was unable to convert the computer account PENTIUM5$ to a domain controller account.  "Access is denied."

I checked the administrator credential on the existing domain controller and it's a group of domain admins, which is should be enough to do perform this task.

Please advise!

At a command prompt, type secedit /refreshpolicy machine_policy /enforce.

I couldn't get this command to work,
but Thanks anyway!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
