Hi nagib,

As which user do you add the DC? Is he a member of the domain admin group? or enterprise admin?

Cheers!
regards,

Trenes

probably DNS - make sure your soon to be DC is only looking at the DC for DNS and no ISP entries

If it doesn't, then I need the error code in the log entry.  It should be at the start of the text in the error description.
