Errors adding 2nd DC in Hyper-V environment - Examining DSN configuration takes forever during DCPROMO
Posted on 2010-11-17
Hyper-V host running on 2 servers
Server1: Guest OS Server 2008 R2 on 1st server is DC with GC
Server2: Guest OS Server 2008 R2 on 2nd server trying to install as 2nd DC with GC
DNS on server2 is set to point to Server1
Was able to successfully join Server2 to the domain SHS.LOCAL
Installed AD role and running DC promo
1st issue: When it gets to Examining DNS Configuration it takes a good 5 minutes, but eventually comes to the Options screen where I choose DNS Server and Global Catalog
2nd issue: "A delegation for this DNS server canot be created because an authoritative parent zone cannot be found or it does not run Windows DNS server. If you are integrating with an existing DNS infrastructure, you sould manually create a delegation to this DNS server in the parent zone to ensur reliable name resolution from outside the domain "shs.loca". Otherwise no action is required."
Since this is an internal domain only, I'm not too worried about that one.
3rd issue: Installation Failed because "Active Directory Domain Services could not create the NTDS Settings object for this Active Directory Domain Controller.... Ensure the provided network credentials have sufficient permissions."
"The RPC server is unavailable"
I disabled the windows firewall on both VMs to no avail.
