Transfer NT AD to 2003
Posted on 2008-06-17
I am trying to transfer a NT AD to a Windows 2003. My plan is to make the 2003 server a bdc of the NT domain in order to copy the users, then switch off the old NT server and promote the 2003 to PDC; might as well leave it as bdc.
I have made the 2003 member of the NT domain but when trying to run dcpromo on the 2003 I get the below error:
The domain name estdom1 might be a NetBIOS domain name. If this is the case, verify that the domain name is properly registered with WINS.
If you are certain that the name is not a NetBIOS domain name, then the following information can help you troubleshoot your DNS configuration.
The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain estdom1:
The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)
The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.estdom1
Common causes of this error include the following:
- The DNS SRV records required to locate a domain controller for the domain are not registered in DNS. These records are registered with a DNS server automatically when a domain controller is added to a domain. They are updated by the domain controller at set intervals. This computer is configured to use DNS servers with following IP addresses:
- One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:
. (the root zone)

I have set up DNS but I am not at all good in configuring NT so I can not understand what is wrong with old domain so I can troubleshoot.
Can someone please assist?
Thanks in advance.
