Issue promoting server to a Domain Controller 2012 Stardard R2

Hello,

We have an existing domain that has a Windows Server 2012 Standard DC/DNS server.  We are adding another server that is Windows 2012 Standard R2 as another DC and DNS server.  We brought the server online, added to the domain and added the ADDS role.

When promoting the server to a DC, the configuration hangs at the following step:

"Creating the NTDS Settins object for this Active Directory Domain COntroller on the remote AD DC fhSQL1.FHSaaS1.local"

In the event viewer Directory services log this is there:

The Active Directory Domain Services Installation Wizard (Dcpromo) was unable to establish connection with the following domain controller.
 
Domain controller:
fhsql1.FHSaaS1.local
 
Additional Data
Error value:
8524 The DSA operation is unable to proceed because of a DNS lookup failure.


Here is the script from the wizard:
#
# Windows PowerShell script for AD DS Deployment
#

Import-Module ADDSDeployment
Install-ADDSDomainController `
-NoGlobalCatalog:$false `
-Credential (Get-Credential) `
-CriticalReplicationOnly:$false `
-DatabasePath "C:\Windows\NTDS" `
-DomainName "FHSaaS1.local" `
-InstallDns:$false `
-LogPath "C:\Windows\NTDS" `
-NoRebootOnCompletion:$false `
-SiteName "Default-First-Site-Name" `
-SysvolPath "C:\Windows\SYSVOL" `
-Force:$true

This is a very straight forward task that I cannot get to work.  Passwords are correct.  I can ping using UNC..thoughts?

Just got to ask, but does this server have a single NIC that is statically set with the correct IP Scheme and is it's primary DNS server the current *active* DC on the domain?  If the server has multiple NIC's are the unused ones disabled?

There are actually 3 connections (these are virtual servers in a Rackspace cloud).  It is statically set with the correct IP Scheme.  Yes the DNS server is the current active dc on the domain.  I have also configured the DNS server to only respond to DNS requests on the local IP scheme that the issue server is using

Also try running a 'dcdiag /test:dns' from your *active* DC.  Do you get any errors?

so there are a bunch of errors, however, I don't care about anything that is not 192.168.4.0.  Does anything pop out?

Hello...so it looks like i have solved the issue...but your posts DID help me to do so.  When we create all of our VMs (in Rackspace), it is assumed that we do not have a DNS server so all of our virtual NICs have a DNS server configured that is not on our network.  I had to change all of the NICS for BOTH VMs to point to the existing DNS server.  Once i did that, the dcdiag /test:dns worked perfectly and the DCPROMO worked instantly.

Thanks for your help.  without the troubleshooting commands I would not have stumbled across this.
