Hi nagib,

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

Cheers!

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

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

Source is NTDS General, the event log error is in Portuguese, thats why I did not paste here. I think event id and source give enought info.

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.
