Cannot add Active Directory Domain Services role on - DirectoryServices-DomainController . Status: -2147021879 (80070bc9)

    Pregunta

  • Hi everyone,

    I've been banging my head against this for a while and hope someone can help me.

     Running Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard with Service Pack 1.

    When I try to add the Active Directory Domain Services role to the server it gets to about 90% complete and then dies.

    The ServerManager.log shows the following information, I have run the System Readiness Tool - output below - with no errors found.

    At a loss on what to do next. The only other links I've found suggest rebuilding the server which I would really like to avoid...

    Help appreciated,

    John

  • Hi Zhang,

    The only thing I saw in the Event Viewer is in the System log:
    Event Id 7001, The DFS Namespace service depends on the Remote Registry service which failed to start because of the following error:
    The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.
    I set the service to Manual, started it and the Installation succeeded.

    Thanks,
    John

  • Hi John,

     

    Thanks for posting.

     

    Performed some research and some results say that this problem can be caused by HD Write Caching.

     

    To disable Write Caching:

     

    1. Go to Device Manager.

    2.Click the plus sign (+) next to the Disk Drives branch to expand it.

    3.Right-click the drive on which you want to enable or disable disk write caching, and then click Properties.

    4.Click the Disk Properties tab.

    5.Click to select or clear the Write Cache Enabled check box as appropriate.

    6.Click OK.

     

    If no luck, Please check if any erros can be found in Event log, Dcpromoui.Log and Dcpromo.log

  • Hi Zhang,

     

    Thank you for your reply. Write Caching is not enabled for the drive, still looking through the links above

     

    Thanks,
