    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.
