  • SBS2003 migration demote problems

    Hello,

    I have a problem with demoting my old server when I did a SBS 2003 R2 swing.
    The whole picture:
    For perfomance reasons I decided to replaced the first server (server1) with a new one (server2).
    I followed all the migration steps described in the official MS manual (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../cc747454.aspx).

    But when I arrived at the "demoting the source server"-step (dcpromo), the source server tells me:
    Code:
    The operation failed because:
    A domain controller could not be contacted for the domain cow.local that contained an account for this computer.
    Make the computer a member of a workgroup then rejoin the domain before retrying the promotion.
    "The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted."
    I've searched for about 2 days for resolving this issue but I hit a brick wall.
    Can anyone give me a hammer to take down this wall.
    I have some diagnotics data (with dcdiag.exe and netdiag.exe) with gives some warnings and failed test but can't figure them out either:
