  • What DNS is the machine using that you want to promote into a new Tree? It must be set only to the forest root DNS until you get it promoted. Then you have other options with DNS resolution in a forest.

    Keep in mind to remove any external DNS, such as teh ISP's DNS, or even if you're using your router/firewall as a DNS address. They do not have any of your internal domain/forest info that AD requires.

    Please provide an ipconfig /all from the current DC in the forest root, and from the machine you want to promote to better assist.

    Thanks,

  • Hi,

     

    Follow the advice from Ace, could you please also tell how the DNS infrastructure looks like in your domain?

     

    1. Do you host central DNS server for both domain trees on the forest DNS server?

    2. If you host DNS namespaces of two AD domain tree in separate DNS servers, what did you configured for cross-namespace name resolution?

  • Hi, I am trying to do the same thing Yunus was doing, ie, set up a DC under a tree root. If I only use the forest root ip as the primary DNS, the server I am trying to promote has problem contacting tree root domain. If I put both forest root and tree root ip in primary DNS and secondary DNS, then I get the same error apot was getting: "Could not access a partition of teh directory service located on a remote server. Make sure at least one server is running for the partition in question." I am doing this with Windows 2008 R2. I followed the dcpromo wizard to create the forest root and the tree root, each of them has DNS server and only forest root contains GC. I have not specifically configured DNS namespaces. So far I have not been able to find a solution to this problem or step to step instructions. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Shimin

    Can you share what you've found at experts-exchange.com?
