          Re: DNS is the root of all evil.

          Secondary should be pointing to itself for primary DNS ( 15.0.0.8 / 127.0.0.1 ) not to 15.0.0.1.

          I would make the first DNS server on the Secondary 15.0.0.8 and the 2nd DNS entry 15.0.0.1 (for redundancy).

            Re: DNS is the root of all evil.

            I fixed the problem, turns out the primary server thought there was a second tree in the forest when there wasnt. perhaps a bad DCpromo in the past. I just went in and cleaned up the meta data Via command line. After running forest and domain prep the tree was installed with no problems. As for the DNS, fixed that too. Thx for the tips guys!!!
