DCPromo Fails With Error: Failed To Examine The Active Directory Forest...
The full error message is:
One of our domain controllers failed on Thursday. I couldn't DCPromo it to demote it as a domain controller or promote it. I decided to rebuild it. That didn't work. I rebuilt it with a new name. I am still getting the same error on the newly rebuilt server.
Failed to examine the Active Directory forest. The error was: The operation cannot continue because LDAP connect/bind operation failed: error: 1326 (Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.
I have Googled the error with little success. Has anyone solved this problem?
