How long did you wait for replication before performing the diag?

Is DNS installed on the new DC and pointed to itself?

Is the server a Global Catalog?

Are you sure you are using a username with permissions to run dcdiag? Second are you using the proper dcdiag tool? You should be using dcdiag that was installed when you installed AD.

i installed this server last wed. DNS is installed on the new on since AD required it. It is a glabl catalog.

Permissions - i am logged under the doman admin. I dont know what you mean by proper dcdiag tool. I just opened a command promot and typed dcdiag?

Some admins have been copying dcdiag from another server then placing in the system since in Windows 2003 Server you had to install the Support tools to copy it from another system the error states that the user you are using doesn't have permissions to run.

VALDC2] User credentials does not have permission to perform this
         operation.
         The account used for this test must have network logon privileges
         for this machine's domain

Try right-clicking your command prompt run as Administrator then run dcdiag

This one is safe to ignore unless you want RODC's. (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/967482)
Starting test: NCSecDesc
         Error NT AUTHORITY\ENTERPRISE DOMAIN CONTROLLERS doesn't have
            Replicating Directory Changes In Filtered Set
         access rights for the naming context:
         DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=valmatic,DC=com


dariusg is spot on with the other test errors as you have to run this with elevated privileges.
