We have 6 servers connected over a WAN running W2003.
I installed a new server at one of our sites and successfully promoted the server.
I then removed the old domain controller from the site.
This caused a problem because my new DC could no longer contact the rest of the network.
I used ntdsutil to remove the old server objects from AD.
I then forced removal of AD from the new server and rejoined it to the domain.
My problem is that I cant promote the new sever to a DC.
The error from the dcpromo log is as follows:
02/14 18:20:43 [INFO] Error – Active Directory could not replicate the directory partition CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=mydomain,DC=com,DC=au from the remote domain controller xxxx.mydomain.com.au. (1818)
02/14 18:20:46 [INFO] NtdsInstall for mydomain.com.au returned 1818
02/14 18:20:46 [INFO] DsRolepInstallDs returned 1818
02/14 18:20:46 [ERROR] Failed to install to Directory Service (1818)
When I look under NTDS settings for the site it lists the server as invalid.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
