    DCPROMO and DNS

    I am just in the process of creating a new domain. I have installed a fresh copy of Server 2003 on a newserver.

    I have gone to DCPROMO and selected

    1. Domain Controller for a New Domain
    2. Child Domain in an Existing Domain tree
    3. Inputted the login details - The Domain that i chose is the top dog domain within our existing forest
    4. I then selected the domain from the browse option and inputted a new domain name


    Then i get the error message below

    DNS was successfully queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain DOMAIN NAME.NET:

    The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.DOMAIN NAME.NET

    The following domain controllers were identified by the query:

    (no domain controllers found)
    Common causes of this error include:

    - Host (A) records that map the name of the domain controller to its IP addresses are missing or contain incorrect addresses.

    - Domain controllers registered in DNS are not connected to the network or are not running.

    For information about correcting this problem, click Help.


    Any advice/support would be great.

    Has your 'top dog' domain DNS server got your new domain zone configured?

    Ok - your running DNS on the new domain, on the new domain controller, correct?

    On your existing DNS server open the DNS MMC and have a look if the new zone for your new domain has appeared.

    Ah ok - what's the NIC's config?

    I generally point the DNS to itself. (127.0.0.1)

    DCPROMO will then configure DNS on the server.

    I think this works the same way when creating a new domain within an existing forest.

    Answer to your question - it won't - I don't think the wizard configures that anyway. You'll need to setup the new zone. This will be a replication from your Primary Zone on the new domain controller. I think.
