  • Trying to ad Windows Server 2012 DC to 2003 domain

    Hi,

    I'm trying to add new 2012 domain controller to existing Windows Server 2003 domain.

    I'm getting following error in eventlog:

    The Active Directory Domain Services Installation Wizard (Dcpromo) was unable to establish connection with the following domain controller.

    Domain Controller:

    servername.domain.local

    Additional data:

    Error value:

    1908 Could not find the domain controller for this domain.

    I have also run dcdiag on 2003 server and it shows no errors.

      No I have not adprepped manually. I have read that "All the activities previously undertaken by ADPREP are now taken care of behind the scenes and don't need to be run explicitly". All I have done is that I raised the domain functional level from windows 2000 to windows 2003.

        Is the 2012 server pointing to/using the old DC/DNS server for DNS? If not, it should be.

          New server has old DC as a first DNS. Name resolution works.
