netdom query parameter

i have a windwos 2008 dc and i migrated windows 2008 to windows 2012 now.
both are diff servers. i had completed the fsmo roles shifting and before that netdom query fsmo was showing the 2008 server.

after shifting the roles on 2012 and while giving the same command netdom query fsmo it says " parameter incorrect"

dns on 2008 is an external dns the same has been assigned to 2012 as well.

then i checked the ad users and computers in 2012 - right click the domain and selected properties and error is attached herewith

please revert back as iam in middle of migration with client

Hi,

This should work, i suspect that the location you chosen could be wrong, can you bring it to  C:\Users\Administrator\netdom query fsmo

The screen shot shows that it's waiting for the replication to happen and it may take time. If you want you can manually replicate it from AD Sites and Services.

the issue with respect to the server hangs in "applying computer settings" is resolved and netdom query as well.

i have done the following :

manually boot the 2008 server in safe mode with networking - changed the primary ip as ip address of the same server itself and secondary ip as ip address of new 2012 server. after that i restarted the 2008 server and it booted normally. i then issued the command in 2012
netdom query fsmo - output came fine.

the other issue which i noticed is that in the same 2008 server exchange 2010 is also running.

please let me know about this dns issue.

Hi,

Glad to know that the issue has been resolved. Regarding the DNS query, if the server is acting as DNS then the DNS primary address should point to itself and secondary as other DNS server in the network.
