I'm having a very strange issue setting up a domain.
I have an existing DNS server on an adhoc network. It currently has 2 zones on it. I am setting up a domain controller on the network and would like to use one of the zones as the domain. I have the dynamic updates enabled on the zone that i'm trying to setup AD.
I keep getting the error of:
the name "<fqdn>" is already in use on this network. Type a name that is not in use.
What is strange is I then tried to create the domain with different extensions. I have tried .local, .corp, .lan, .net, .org even .asdf and i'm getting the same error every time.
I know for a FACT none of those are in use on the network.
I have even tried to uninstall the AD binaries and install just a DNS server with the name on it and point it to itself for DNS and then reinstall the binaries. No luck.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
