  • Unable to Promote 2008 Core Server to DC

    Having problems promoting my 2008 core server to a domain controller.

    I am getting the following error.

    Checking if Active Directory Domain Services binaries are installed...
    Active Directory Domain Services Setup
    Validating environment and parameters...
    The wizard cannot access the list of domains in the forest. The error is:
    Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.

    Our current DC is running Server 2003.

    Please advise?

      Have you used the windows 2008 server ADPREP on the domain?

        Have tried that way and via two different core configurators.

        Get the same error with both.

            You need to run it on the 2k3 DC. It is required to be run by an Enterprise administrator and the account and or another needs to be a domain admin as well as member of the schema admin.

            It adds the Windows 2008 attributes required for w2k8 AD

              I'm a little confused... why is this question double posted, and why is this particular instance in the CISCO switches and routers "How-To" forum??!!

              Reported for double post and for movement.

                I did see another for this myself somewhere and I thought my posts hadn't been added for some reason, even though I had added 2 of them.

                Can it be moved to the relevant forum at all?

                  Post moved to the Windows 2008 forum.
                  The second thread was deleted.
