ADWS Error 1202 This computer is now hosting the specified directory instance, but Active Directory Web Services could not service it

    Question

  • Hi,

    follwing error i recive on all both DC/GC in the child domain:

    This computer is now hosting the specified directory instance, but Active Directory Web Services could not service it. Active Directory Web Services will retry this operation periodically.

    I don´t find any solution for this and even google is not helpfull.

    DFS Replication is ok, Directory Service is ok and also DNS.

    This is what i get with dcdiag: (just a little extract):
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
     * Identified AD Forest.
       Ldap search capabality attribute search failed on server xxxxxx, return
       value = 81
       Got error while checking if the DC is using FRS or DFSR. Error:
       Win32 Error 81The VerifyReferences, FrsEvent and DfsrEvent tests might fail
       because of this error.

       Ldap search capabality attribute search failed on server xxxxxx, return 
       value = 81
       Got error while checking if the DC is using FRS or DFSR. Error:

       Win32 Error 81The VerifyReferences, FrsEvent and DfsrEvent tests might fail
       because of this error.

    xxxxxxxx are Server in the parent domain but in another site!

             Warning: child-dc is not advertising as a time server.
             Warning: child-dc  has not finished promoting to be a GC.
             Check the event log for domains that cannot be replicated.

             Warning: child-dc  is not advertising as a global catalog.
             Check that server finished GC promotion.
             Check the event log on server that enough source replicas for the GC
             are available.

    AlL Server in the Child domain are W2K8 R2 std engl,
    the Server in the parent domain are w2k3/w2k8 mix :-)

    Just to complete all:
    i had already a childdomain with the same bit this was with dcpromo deinstalled and only some minor rest
    in the parent domain delete by adsi-edit.

    Any idea what ist goin wrong?

    Kind Regards

  • Hello,

    "i had already a childdomain with the same bit this was with dcpromo deinstalled and only some minor rest in the parent domain delete by adsi-edit."

    Please elaborate the above more detailed. Is the problem childdomain the same or a complete different one, with different name?

    Also post the complete dcdiag /v and an uneidted ipconfig /all from the existing child domain DCs, how many in total do you have?

    I assume the forest schema was updated error free with adprep, before starting with the child domain?
