Windows 2012 server Promote to Domain Controller "Active Directory Services could not replicate the directory partition"
Posted on 2013-05-17
I have a 1 domain controller environment 2008 R2
I would like to have some redundancy so I want to have the Windows 2012 server be another domain controller.
DNS is installed under 2012.
I have installed AD Domain Services.
When I try and Promote this server to a domain controller, after passing all per-requisites, I get:
The operation failed because:
Active Directory Services could not replicate the directory partition CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=domain,DC=local from the remote Active Directory Domain Controller DC1.dexco.local.
"Whilte accessing the hard disk, a disk operation failed even after retries."
I did a chkdsk/f and rebooted and tried again.
