I am trying to join a w2k3 server as an AD server for a different site.
The problem is that when I tried to join the new server (SERVER03) to the primary domain server (SERVER01), it says credential is rejected because of a target name problem.

SERVER02 is an existing secondary domain server.

On SERVER01, this is the result of dcdiag:

At this point, I need to stress that I'm not a computer expert. Just trying to get through life doing what I need to do :) So please...step by step solution.
I installed the original server myself a few years ago and am sure there are errors in it.

Thank you in advance.

Thanks for the replies.

Mattconroy, the link you gave me is titled: "Upgrading from Windows 2000 Domains to Windows Server 2003 Domains". I'm actually not trying to upgrade anything. So which one of the links on the page should I look at? (There's many of them)

M3rc74: No. I'm trying to add a server for a different site. I've added the site and the subnet. The problem is when I tried to join this new server, I'm given a "Logon Failure: The target account name is incorrect." error.

Not too sure what a forest server is, so I'm not sure if it is one. But it is the first computer in the domain and also the first AD. It used to work fine until the hdd broke down and we had to recover the system to another hdd.

Thanks

If you are adding a 2003 DC to a 2000 AD then the link I sent you applies.

During the dcpromo make sure you choose a DC in the same site for replication.

Ok. Maybe we need to take a step back.
I've done this once and I'm doing the exact same thing now.:
1. Add site and dns. Eg: if original domain was 50.0.0.0,
2. The new site will be 50.0.3.0. Add this in AD sites
3. Add subnet, also in AD sites
4. Set ip of new server to 50.0.3.21 (example)
5. Join the new server to the domain
6. Setup the new server as AD, secondary in an existing domain (something like that)
7. That is pretty much it.

The problem now is that Step 5 fails. I cant join into the domain.
And i think it is because of the above error.

So maybe I'll rephrase my question and request: What does the error mean? I'm thinking to fix this we need to address the errors?

We solved it!!
It turns out that I'm having the exact same problem with this person:
http://www.petri.co.il/forums/showthread.php?t=26637&page=6

And the solution is to run (see post by Kennhon #59):
netdom resetpwd /server:Server2 /userd:mydomain\Administrator /passwordd:*
Only that in my case I need to change "Server2" to IP Address (probably because DNS not working yet)

And after that reboot, and when I relogin, the dns filled itself and is back to its normal state.

My other EE post also describes the process more clearly:
