Dear Jawad,

when i am adding backup domain i am getting this error.

he error was: "DNS name does not exist."
(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)

The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.doman.local

Common causes of this error include the following:

- The DNS SRV records required to locate a domain controller for the domain are not registered in DNS. These records are registered with a DNS server automatically when a domain controller is added to a domain. They are updated by the domain controller at set intervals. This computer is configured to use DNS servers with following IP addresses:

Sorry what do you mean, backup domain?

In essence the error is fairly self-explanatory in that whatver the server is using for DNS cannot resolve the name of the domain.

Are you trying to promote a server to be a domain controller? A child domain of an existing root? If so, what are you using for the DNS server of the new machine?

Yeah that makes sense.

So I expect the current, running DC is also a DNS server (Hope it is anyway!).

Make sure you set a static IP address and subnet on the new server, with it's primary DNS pointing to the existing DC.

That'll allow it to join properly.

Once it is joined, if you choose to have it as a DNS server also, you can add itself as the primary DNS server and the original as the secondary.

To expand on that comment - chances are that because it was originally a DC, if you do an IPCONFIG /ALL from a command prompt it'll show that it is trying to use itself as a DNS server.
