Can't add new W2K3 Server to domain: The remote procedure call failed and did not execute
Posted on 2008-02-01
I've tried everything except what magic will make this work.
Existing Windows 2003 Domain, single server SP1. I am adding a second Windows 2003 Server SP2. Go through the process, click OK. About 10 minutes later, it will timeout with: The following error occured attempting to join the domain "xxxxx" The remote procedure call failed and did not execute.
There are no errors in either servers' Event Logs.
The new server does appear in AD Computers.
I've restarted both servers multiple times.
I have attempted to join by using both the NETBIOS and fully qualified domain name.
I have tested by successfully adding an XP Pro Workstation to the Domain.
I have reformatted the new server, even though it was clean to begin with.
I have changed the name of the new server.
If I supply bogus credentials when attempting to join the domain, it immediately errors out and tells me that my user and password are incorrect.
I'm not running ISA Server.
