I only have one dc and it is slowly dying and I want to get AD off it and put on another server. The new server is on the domain and is looking at the correct DNS server. I am getting the following error during the Dcpromo setup. The operation failed because: Failed to modify the necessary properties for the machine account Server$ “Access is denied. “Text I have also tried to delagate trust in AD but get a error saying the following error. “Your security settings do not allow you to specify whether or not this computer can be trusted for delegation” I have tired to check the the DC security policy and get a error about the path not being found for group policy. Access may be denied? Sorry about my first post being so long but I really need some help with this one. Thanks very much!
