I have a Windows 2003 Domain Controller that has been shut down for a few months now. I had to move it physically to a new location (new subnet).
When I turned it on, i made sure that the Network settings were correct, reregistered in DNS and when i do a DCPromo (down) it says:
The operation failed because:
Managing the network session with myotherdc.mydomain.com failed
“Logon Failure: The target account name is incorrect”.
It seems that when i open AD Users/Computers it has stale info.
I moved it to the correct site, etc — but no luck.
Here’s some things i tried for troubleshooting:
change dns servers (different servers)
My last resort is a dcpromo/forceremoval — but i really do not want to do this.
I’ve been looking at the internet for help, but so far nothing has hit me.
I realize it’s either a issue with Stale AD info (possibly DNS), but what could it be.
DNS seems to work fine when i point to the correct server,etc.
Sorry about the rambling — any assistance would be greatly appreciated!!!
