I am trying to create a child domain under a tree root in Windows 2008 R2.
If I only use the forest root ip as the primary DNS, the server I am trying to promote has problem contacting tree root domain. If I put both forest root and tree root ip in primary DNS and secondary DNS, then I get the error: "Could not access a partition of the directory service located on a remote server. Make sure at least one server is running for the partition in question."
I followed the dcpromo wizard to create the forest root and the tree root, each of them has DNS server and only forest root contains GC. I have not specifically configured DNS namespaces.
So far I have not been able to find a solution to this problem or step to step instructions.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
