I am trying to add a 2nd Domain Controller (active directory) to my local network for disaster recovery.
I run dcpromo, go through the steps ==> select "Additional domain controller for an existing domain" ==> enter the network credentials for a domain user with Domain Admin permissions ==> Enter domain name (pre populated) ==> Enter new passwords ==> Go
I get the following error:
The operation failed because: Managing the network session with \\COMPNAME.DOMAIN.COM failed. "Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed. Disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again."
I replaced my domain name with "COMPNAME.DOMAIN.COM" above. The network user I used does not have any network shares. It was a user I just created on the DC just for this purpose.
