  • Problem joining the domain and Secondary DC

    Hi all:

    I'm trying to building a secondary DC in windows 2003. The primary one has been configured and online. The problem is I can't pass the "Network Confidential" step when creating additional one. It gave me the common DNS error, "No host(A) records in dns" or " DC is located but no working" something.

    Actually the DNS has all the records and is working fine, but it turned out that I found even with that I couldn't join the domain, it gave me the same error, but I could join the workgroup by NetBios name. Because I just started this new job, I found in the whole network, all the machines (NT, 98 or 2000, 2003) cannot join the domain, but by NetBios is fine.

    So I don't know if there is any wrong configuration in the primary DC, either in AD or DNS.

    Thanks for any hints.

    Did you check the SRV records in DNS?
    How is the zone configured?
