Unable to promote 2012 server to DC and getting 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.
Server has been added to the domain and AD has been installed.
Verified on both 2003 DC's that both the domain and forest functional level is 2003. (Forest functional level is 2003 interim).
