I have 2012 server that replaced a 2003 server on my domain.  The FSMO roles have been transferred and DC promoted.  When the old 2003 PDC is off the 2012 server has issues with AD.  I can't access it when the old server is shutdown.  However when I run dcdialog, I get errors below.  how do I fix the errors?
