I have set up a new 2003 Server as Domain controller, active directory and DNS.for domain:
There is an existing network with another domain controller: .  The new Domain controller is set up as new/standalone for preparation to switch users to a new domain in the near future.  New domain appears to be set up but no other machine can join it. I get an error that "Domain Server could not be contacted.:  Router/Gateway  New domain Server,active directory, dns  Server trying to join the new domain.(Is not on any other domain but a workgroup)  Old Domain controller, active directory, dns (in use)
I do not want the new domain server to be a part of the domain at all.
Any help would be appreciated.
