"SERVER01" - is the "metal" and runs  AD, DC, DNS, DHCP

"SERVER03" - is virtual located on "SERVER01" and running Exchange, SQL (and various other programs)

Also have a virtual "SERVER02" on "SERVER01" that runs remote desktop services.

Can you post the whole dcdaig /v?

What servers are running AD services?

Possible that you have old failed DC that needs to be cleaned too

Thanks sarang_tinguria - I can see that.

dcdiag still gives the error though (and no other errors)

I saved and cleared the

"Event Viewer (local)" - "Applications and Services Logs" - "Directory Service"

log. Reran dcdiag. Still same error.

Right-click on Command Prompt Run as Administrator

We could be talking about elevated permissions.

It did not work with elevated permission either.

The problem was quite easy to fix and also a bit embarrasing.

I kept running the excact same command:

dcdiag /f:dcdiag.txt

Apparently dcdiag is unable to overwrite the txt file on subsequent runs (even with elevated permissions)

So a simple delete of the txt in between runs (or to anther filename) and the error is gone.
