the wizard cannot access the list of domains in the forest. The error is: the interface is unknown

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I am having an issue when I installed Active Directory on my Windows Server 2008 machine. I added the server to the domain and ran the dcpromo. After a reboot, I went to administrative tools and licked active directory domains and trusts and I got the error that appears in the title of that question. I need to know if there is another solution than to just redo the server.

Thanks in advanced,
