Can't add 2008 R2 server to exisitng domain
Posted on 2011-09-20
The network has three sites. Two domain controllers (Windows 2003 Server)in site #1 (HQ), two domain controllers in site #2 (Windows 2008 R2) and one domain controller in site #3 (Windows Server 2008 R2).
The domain controller in site #3 had a sudden boot drive failure. We used NTDSUTIL to remove the remians from AD, as well as, using AD U&C and AD S&S to remove the server where it was listed. We also removed the DNS entries from the forward lookup zone and the mcds.
Now when just trying to join the domain we receive the:
The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for domain "stonehenge.corp":
The 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.stonehenge.corp
Common causes of this error include the following:
- The DNS SRV records required to locate a AD DC for the domain are not registered in DNS. These records are registered with a DNS server automatically when a AD DC is added to a domain. They are updated by the AD DC at set intervals. This computer is configured to use DNS servers with the following IP addresses:
- One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:
. (the root zone)
One of the other tasks that was done during the troubleshooting was to rename the server which resulted in the same error.
If any of you gurus could please assist, it would be greatly appreciated.
