Addint a child domain process hangs in Replicating the schema directory partition


  • Hello everyone,

    for practice proposes and exam preparations I have my own virtual private network setup on an PowerEdge R905 Machine (which is a beast) I have two networks and windows server 2008R2 on a DMZ zone setup as router to rout traffic between two of my networks. My two networks are - and the 10 network has its own active directory setup, now on my 20 network I am trying to deploy a child domain. during the process everything is going just fine BUT the process of promoting the domain gets stuck on Replicating The Schema Directory Partition. Can anyone tell me what the issue might be ? I tried everything that I could think of such as:

    made sure the 20 network server is pointed to the DNS on the 10th server.

    you can ping the IP address and the FQDN of 10 network from the 20 network.

    I made sure all firewalls are disabled on both networks

    on my 10 network I have created sites  and assigned the right subnets for each site

    so please any hint and explanation is greatly appreciated
