Have an existing 2003 server and wanting to add a new 2012 DC to the network.
When trying to promote 2012 to the existing domain get the following error:-
"Verification of replica failed. The forest functional level is Windows 2000. To install a Windows Server 2012 domain or domain controller, the forest functional level must be Windows Server 2003 or higher"
However, I have raised the functional level to 2003 in domain and trusts on the 2003 server rebooted both servers but the error still occurs. DNS on the 2012 points to the existing server. Driving me insane.
