Failed Domain Rename preventing Domain Migration
Posted on 2013-01-03
I am working on a project were I am migrating a Windows Server 2003 AD Domain with Exchange 2003 to W2K8R2 Server with Exchange 2010.
I am having problems with the promotion of the W2K8R2 as a DC whereby I get an error "The directory service cannot perform the requested operation because a domain rename is in progress."
The previous IT support must have began a domain rename but never completed it. I have never needed to rename a domain, and arent sure what to look for to see what has been done and what hasnt, with the aim to reverse it. There is only on server on the domain, and it runs exchange.
