We recently setup DFS on two 2008 servers in a windows 2003 AD environment. We had some configuration woes with the first testing and decided to start over with the process. We are now getting the error: "the namespace server cannot be added the specified domain either does not exist" when attempting to create the new namespace in the namespace wizard.
I have manually removed DFS information from the domain controller according to: " Manually remove DFS
I have also checked for registry entries on all servers involved. Completely removed DFS from the two 2008 servers. Re-installed DFS on both. Restarted DFS services on all servers involved including secondary domain controller. Forced replication after making changes with AdsiEdit.
When running nslookup domain.com I get:
The server 10.10.1.8 is the Mercury.domain.com server and it is the PDC.
Please advise on how I can move forward and let me know what additional information I need to provide. Goal is to replicate data between the two 2008 servers.
