Dcpromo WIN2K8R2 Wizard cannot access the list of domains in the forest

Hi,
In my architecture I have 2 DC Win2k3(DC1 & DC2) and 2 DC Win 2k8R2(DC3 & DC5)
I want to get rid of the two Win2k3, so I have installed another Win2k8R2 server (DC4), dcpromo it, everything is fine.
I have renamed this W2K8 to (DC2) : former win2k3 that I have shutdown.
The machine seems fine, I can launch the Active Directory Users and Computers console, connect to the domain and manage it, I can also ping any machine in my network and nslookup too, and from other machine I can ping DC2 and nsookup it.

The problem is that in my AD console, under Domain controllers, the machine was still with the old name (DC4), and the replication was not made for this.

I manage to delete this machine from the DC container (via ADSIEDIT), but right now I can't add it again, I want to unregister and reregister this machine to the domain, but it's not possible since it's a domain controller.

So I want to run the Dcpromo, but I have this error :
Active Directory Domain Services Installation Wizard
   - The wizard cannot access the list of domains in the forest. The error is:
          The interface is unknown.


And I'm stuck here, any help will be appreciated.

I enclose the dcdiag results

Ps: I've already had a look to other message in EE but nothing helps

Have you transferred the FSMO roles from the old server to the new server? I believe that PDC and GC roles are getting failed here.

Have rebooted the server and checked?

Hi,
When I try to do this, add an other DC to Active Directory Domains and Trusts and Active Directory Schema Console I see my 5 DC, but both DC2 and DC4 are Unavailable
When I select DC2 :
The following DC could not be contacted : DC2.pc.mydomain.ca
The interface is unknown

When I select DC4:
The following DC could not be contacted : DC4.pc.mydomain.ca
The server is not operational


And yes the DC2 have been restarted many times.

How did you rename the DC? Did you follow these steps?

http://www.petri.co.il/rename-windows-server-2008-domain-controllers.htm

If you just renamed the DC like you would rename any workstation the best bet would be to demote then re-promote the server

Author

Commented:
@dariusg yep I've done exactly this procedure.
Next step is dcpromo /forceremocal
and after that I will rename first the server to DC2 and promote it again.

Commented:
So you DID NOT do a DCPROM to REMOVE the OLD DC2 first? You just renamed an already DCPROMO'ed machine over the same name and then switched one off??
Commented:
@Neilsr DC4 which was a Domain controller was Renamed using this solution
http://www.petri.co.il/rename-windows-server-2008-domain-controllers.htm to DC2, the former DC2 was just switched off.

I finally make it work :
dcpromo /forceremoval
remove the Active directory, reboot, rejoin the domain (dcpromo), and the machine is now accepted as a domain controller with the name of a previous different DC.
Dfs, printer manager, and other services are back automatically.

Thanks
