well i’ve done this process on a server just over a month ago… and of course i can’t get it to work on a new one.
we have a 2000 DC, ran the adprep, i’ve installed the 2003 ip=.3 box on the network, pointed the Primary DNS in the IP settings to .20 which is the 2000 box.
every time i run DCPROMO and try and use the credentials it will fail!!:::(( i’m logging in with the administrator account on the 2000 DC! i can add the server as a member server to the 2000 domain without any issues.
any tips would be awesome!
ps… i went through the doc on this site just to make sure as well. the error(i’m reading it now) says that the domain controller domain.local could not be contacted!
