I have 2 problems that may be related. I recently had my main DC go down. So I seized all the roles. Printing and file shareing work just fine.
I am logged in as an administrator.
I setup dhcp on my secondary DC that is now my main DC. Setup scope and server options. When I go to authorize the server the red arrow never goes away and it continues to say "A DHCP server must be authorized" If I go into manage authorized servers I see the DC with the new DHCP is the only thing in the list.
The DC is set to use itself for dns.
When I try and create a primary zone that "Stores the zone in Active Directory" After a few minutes I get an error that says " The zone cannot be creates The data is invalid.
If I uncheck the Active Directory box I don't get an error.
I have been searching this problem for hours and can't solve it.
