Back story: Sage MAS200 consultant needed a Active Directory free server to do their thing. I wanted to virtualize the Active directory server for some time anyway and used it as an excuse.
Physical server: ARBSVR1
Hyper-V Servers: ARBDC01, ARBDC02
I installed Hyper-V in Test Server, installed Server 2008 x86. Installed AD role and did the dcpromo, no errors so far, only a FrsEvent error with a SYSVOL replication problem that was corrected after a log clear and a reboot. I then created a second Hyper-V Server 2008 x86 with AD and did dcpromo. So far so good.
When I ran dcpromo on the original physical server it all went to hell. The Server didn’t demote successfully and left a mess in DNS. The roles (RID,FSMO,etc) were assigned to ARBDC02 but ARBDC01 still sees ARVSVR1 as the role holder. Not I get a [email protected] load of errors in DCDIAG, DNS and SYSVOL is not replicating.
After 1 hour of verifying DNS in both servers and adding the proper entries and removing the ARBSVR1 records I’m still having problems and fresh out of ideas.
Any ideas? Oh and thanks, long time lurker and first time poster
