FSMO role Sieze Error - DsBindW error 0x6ba<the RPC Server is unavailable
Posted on 2010-08-17
I am trying to add a second domain controller to an existing Domain (this domain is clone from existing DC in production). I am receiving below error. Metabase is all cleaned up.
Error joining Domain
The attempt to join this computer to teh hq.netapp.com domain failed.
The directory service was unable to allocate a relative identfier.
Then I went a head and checked the existing domain controller for the FSMO roles its holding through ADUC, I found PDC and Infrastructure roles are ok but RID shows as ERROR.
When I tried to change receiving following error.
The transfer of the operations master role cannot be performed because; The requested FSMO operation failed. The current FSMO holder could not be contacted.
As I know there is no other DC available I wanted to seize the FSMO roles for this domain Controller. When I am trying to use ntdsutility to seize teh FSMO roles
when I say "connect to server"
I receive the follwoing error:
DsBindW error 0x6ba<the RPC Server is unavailable>
I checked all the RPC servcies and everything looks good.
How do I get over this issue and seize FSMO roles and add the second domain controller?
