A virtual Active directory domain controller in hyper-v 2012 r2 cannot register new users

Last Modified: 2015-04-14
I have converted a physical Active Directory Domain controller running Windows server 2008 R2 to a virtual server on hyper-v 2012 R2, using Disk2Vhd. The Virtual Active Directory Domain controller works well, I can remove OU's, delete and disable users. However, I cannot add new users to the AD. I get an error : "Windows cannot create the object because the Directory Service was unable to allocate a relative identifier."
