Clean Server2012 install will not work as domain controller

    Question

  • Trying to set up Exchange 2013 on clean server 2012 install on a home network. Following instructions from ExchangeServerPro (http://inside.exchangeserverpro.com/members/exchange-2013-boot-camp/module-1/) I find the Domain controller does not work.

    Running dcdiag  /q I get


             Fatal Error:DsGetDcName (SERVER2012) call failed, error 1355
             The Locator could not find the server.

  • Hi,

    Based on your description, how did we set up the server as a domain controller? Did we also configured it as DNS server? Besides, did we also configure the server as a global catalog server?

    Regarding how to promote a domain controller, the following article can be referred to as reference.

    Step-by-Step Guide for Setting up A Windows Server 2012 Domain Controller

  • Set the Primary DNS to 10.0.0.10 and Restart the "Active Directory Domain Services" service.
