Problem with Active Directory

We have a 2003 Server named server and a 2012 Server named server12.

I ran through all the transfer steps to demote the 2003 server. But when i run netdom query fsmo on the new server i get "the parameter is incorrect"

When I open AD Users & Groups on new server. right click on domain and choose change controller. Server 12 isn't listed. I can manually type it then it opens.

If i open AD Domains and trust and check operational master it says the new server is the operational master.

If i open AD Admin center it says can't find any available servers

If i open AD Users & Comp - It shows ERROR under operations master.

I would start by running dcdiag on both old and new. Did you have any problems promoting the 2012 server to a DC?

Check the following services on the 2012 Server and make sure the startup type is auto and that the service is running

Try stopping the Windows Firewall service on both servers. Don't simply turn off the Windows Firewall. Actually stop the services. If the AV software on the servers has an internal firewall stop that too. Did you actually get as far as running dcpromo on the 2003 box?

No DCPromo .......was afraid to run it with the way things are running. Also when i shut down the 2003 server ...........AD on the 2012 server starts acting up.

This server is the owner of the following FSMO role, but does not consider it valid. For the partition which contains the FSMO, this server has not replicated successfully with any of its partners since this server has been restarted. Replication errors are preventing validation of this role.
 
Operations which require contacting a FSMO operation master will fail until this condition is corrected.
 
FSMO Role: DC=papharmacists,DC=com
 
User Action:
 
1. Initial synchronization is the first early replications done by a system as it is starting. A failure to initially synchronize may explain why a FSMO role cannot be validated. This process is explained in KB article 305476.
2. This server has one or more replication partners, and replication is failing for all of these partners. Use the command repadmin /showrepl to display the replication errors.  Correct the error in question. For example there maybe problems with IP connectivity, DNS name resolution, or security authentication that are preventing successful replication.
3. In the rare event that all replication partners are expected to be offline (for example, because of maintenance or disaster recovery), you can force the role to be validated. This can be done by using NTDSUTIL.EXE to seize the role to the same server. This may be done using the steps provided in KB articles 255504 and 324801 on http://support.microsoft.com.
 Found this Error in Event log





The following operations may be impacted:
Schema: You will no longer be able to modify the schema for this forest.
Domain Naming: You will no longer be able to add or remove domains from this forest.
PDC: You will no longer be able to perform primary domain controller operations, such as Group Policy updates and password resets for non-Active Directory Domain Services accounts.
RID: You will not be able to allocation new security identifiers for new user accounts, computer accounts or security groups.
Infrastructure: Cross-domain name references, such as universal group memberships, will not be updated properly if their target object is moved or renamed.

At this point the DNS on the 2003 Server should point to the 2012 Server. If that is the case and the firewalls are stopped then you may very well have to seize the remaining roles with ntdsutil and then forcefully remove the 2003 server with a dcpromo /force then remove the metadata:

There is a difference between transferring and seizing. You want to run ntdsutil from the 2012 server and seize what ever roles it doesn't hold.....
