I tried to add a new Windows Server 2008 R2 DC to an existing Domain (Windows 2003 R2 SP2) but got an error when running DCPromo.
Installation Failed - The Active Directory Domain Services installation operation failed. Active Directory Domain Services could not replicate the directory partition..... "The source server is currently rejecting replication requests".
I've checked out this MS article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2023007
, and the issue appears to be a USN rollback error. Registry shows HKLM\System\CurrentControl
sa Not Writable = 4
I'm looking for a different resolution than removing the DC from the domain or restoring a system state backup (details in http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;875495
), as this server is the only Domain Controller in the domain.
