DcPromo fails to install Active Directory Domain Service SBS Server 2008
Posted on 2009-04-30
Hello, I'm following the instructions to add a Small Business Server 2008 onto a Small Business Server 2003 network. I want to add on the second server and promote it to domain controller. I've run the forestprep and domainprep on the original SBS 2003 computer. On the SBS 2008 server, I start DCpromo, add a domain controller to the existing forest, and am able to select my domain.
It starts ok until it gets to configuring the Active Directory on the Local computer, at which point it stops and I get the message that it has failed to promote the computer to a domain controller because "The replication operation failed to allocate memory." Any ideas?
