DNS problem with new Domain Controller

Hi,

I have a small problem with one of my DCs.
I recently built a new DC using a Dell 2850, running Windows Server 2008 R2 x64. I was given a project to upgrade all our training infrastructure to x64 bit.

The DC has been built and works okay, however I'm having real difficulties with DNS, AD Replication.

I'm unable to do a replication to the new DC, as it complains about RPC errors. I know the IP addressing that I've used is fine as the server can be pinged from any of the other servers.

I ran the DNS tests from a command prompt but to no avail. I have attached both files as well to make it easier to see what I have done.

From server 1 I can create an object in AD and have it replicate successfully. However it does not work the other way. I am going to demote the old DC and transfer its roles, DHCP etc...

I know there is a Windows Migration tool in Server 2008 to do this but I am not clued up in Powershell well enough to do this yet.

So everyone is clear, the setup currently is:

DC1 - Server 2003 R2 (Schema Master etc)
DC2 - Server 2008 R2 x64 (Normal DC/GC server)

Any help would be appreciated.

Is KHC-STU-DC4 the new DC?

ambri5hAuthor Commented:
nope, its HCBETA-BHS-DC1

Basically KHC-STU-DC3 and KHC-STU-DC4 are remote, i.e. in a data centre and between a DMZ some place.

KHC-STU-DC2 and HCBETA-BHS-DC1 are in the same building.

KHC-STU-DC0 is in another building

Can you run repadmin /showreps and repadmin /showrepl from BHS-DC1?

Thanks

It is a DNS mis-configuration issue. As per the logs I see connectivity issues on KHC-STU-DC4, PWHCBADC01, HCBETA-BHS-DC1. Use below link and correct DNS settings and restart DNS and Netlogon. Once everything is done and if you see any errors in repadmin /replsum and dcdiag /test:dns log let us know.

Hi guys,

I actually did some more Googling and found this website: http://www.petenetlive.com/KB/Article/0000301.htm

Step 1 seems to have fixed things for me. I'm going to monitor this over the course of the week and will update this question later on this week.
