I have an existing W2k3 AD, and I have added my 1st W2k8 DC to AD (as a DC and I’ve transferred all FSMO roles to it), but I am having problems with adding the 2nd W2k8 DC. When it gets to the point for Network Credentials, it bombs out with the error listed below.
Both servers are identical, including in NIC configuration. The 2nd DC is set to look at DC01 first, then the three W2k3 AD DC’s. I can’t find any errors in the Event Logs – I probably don’t have enough logging going on yet.
I’ve also attached dcpromoui.log (attached as dcpromoui.txt).
Your help would be greatly appreciated!
