Hi there,

Trying promoting 2016 server from 2008r2 server after moving FSMO roles and verified the roles are in the new DC. but when I try to raise domain functional level, i get this error "The functional level could not be raised. The error is: The server is unwilling to process the request." I had to do dcpromo /force on the old dc as the dcpromo would not ran. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated..
