Hello Thank you for your time and attention to my question. Your expertise is highly valued and appreciated.
I have just installed a new server 2008 r2 sp1 in an existing domian. The old DC is Server 2003 r2 sp2.
I raised the domain functional level to 2003 from 2000 mixed.
I preped the existing domain by running (adprep /domainprep /forestprep /gpprep) on old server.
I added new server to domain and ran DCPromo.exe
Wizard had an issue w/ connecting to existign global catalog but that was due to a credentials issue.
DCPromo finished and rebooted.
I have not moved the FSMO roles as as i'm havign issue w/ Active Directory on the new server.
AD DS is not runnign and will not start.
How can i fixed this issue. Should i run DCPromo agian?
As right now the sever has Acitve Directory and DNS role runnign on it.
Any and all help is appreciated.
