I am replacing a SBS2008 server with a new machine and using the latest migration guide (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=11592
Upon completion of the installation on the destination server I am getting the following error:
FATAL: DcPromo_JoinDomain: The server was not promoted to a domain controller.
From the DcPromo log file I see:
Checking if Active Directory Domain Services binaries are installed...
Active Directory Domain Services Setup
Validating environment and parameters...
The wizard cannot access the list of domains in the forest. The error is:
The semaphore timeout period has expired.
The attached SBSsetup log may provide some answers but I am grateful for any suggestions! I have tried running the migration preparation tool on the source server although beca use it is already SBS2008, I'm not sure if this was necessary. After the first failed attempt I did try Raising the domain functional level from Server 2003 to 2008 (this machine had itself been migrated from SBS 2003 to SBS2008 a few years back) but this may have been too late or had no effect anyway. Ideas?
One other thought- The last two attempts I have had to manually change the time in the setup wizard because if was off by one hour- is that relevant?
