I cannot promote 2003 server to domain controller
Posted on 2009-04-09
Recently restored exchange server from image, all of a sudden, outlook was asking for passwords, couldnt log on via rdp, had to log on locally, wasnt replicating with secondary DC (also 2003)
Demoted primary DC (one from image backup)
Seized all fsmo roles on secondary DC
cleaned metatdata with ntdsutil
when i try and re-promote my exchange server i get this error
"DNS was successfully queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain ivyacademia.com:
The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.ivyacademia.com
The following domain controllers were identified by the query:
Common causes of this error include:
- Host (A) records that map the name of the domain controller to its IP addresses are missing or contain incorrect addresses.
- Domain controllers registered in DNS are not connected to the network or are not running.
