I am in a school installing a separate server 2012 r2 to replace the existing 2003 r2 setup. I want to bring over as much as I can of the network setup so I cause as little disruption as possible when they start coming back next week.
I have been following the instructions on this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OG5K6B7hgRU
and to be honest it seems to have been working just perfect up until 18 minutes and 10 seconds in to the video. Here is where the Operations Masters are changed.
According to the video (and numerous other tutorials that we were looking at) the operations manager is "OldServer.local"
and by clicking the Change button, this should then change to what is displayed in the lower field, which should be "NewServer.local"
. However, what is displayed "OldServer.local"
in both fields.
I have checked the Operations Masters on the OldServer just to see what is displayed there and it is the exact same. When I do actually click Change on the NewServer I get an error message saying
The current domain Controller is the operations master. To transfer the operations master role to another computer, you must first connect to it.
So how do I connect to it? I have turned off the AV on both and rebooted both. But it made no difference.
