I have a single server running Server 2003 Std. sp2. I added a Server 2012 Std Server to the domain as a member server. I am now trying to promote the 2012 server to a DC. The 2003 forest and domain are in 2003 functional level. I am getting the error described here; when the prerequisites check runs (last step before installation) I followed resolution one by adding the logon permissions to the built in administrator account. Instead of following step two I turned off all firewalls and AV programs but I'm still getting the same error. There is no Exchange Server
