I have Windows server 2000 as my PDC, it also does my DNS. (We'll call it "PDC"
I have a server 2003 system as my BDC. (We'll call it "DC")
I am trying to promote a new server 2003 (not R2) system to a DC and eventually the PDC. (We'll call it ("WANNABE")
On WANNABE, DCPROMO runs fine, but when I check the DNS on PDC, after the dcpromo reboot, WANNANBE is not listed in DNS anywhere and especially not under MSDCS. I then tried to run DCDIAG on WANNABE and it does not recognize the command.
This is my 3rd attempt at setting up this server and I need to do it right this time.
