  • Problem adding 2nd w2k3 DC

    I am trying to add a second Windows 2003 Server Domain Controller to my network that has a primary W2K3 Domain Controller. but I am receiving the following error message:

    "LDAP connection could not be established with the domain controller {primary dc name}..."

    The wizard / process to add the second DC is very straight forward. I have even located and followed the procedure on Mr. Petri's web site, but I get the same results. Any ideas?

    Are your DNS settings on the second server pointing to the first server?

      I presume this is W2K3 with SP1. If so, try disabling the local firewall on the existing w2K3 Server NIC
      TIA
