The network name cannot be found


  • Hi,

    We have 2 Domain controllers, old and new. Both running Windows Server 2012 R2. I have migrated FSMO roles from old DC to new DC and confirmed. But after migration, I am getting an error "the network name cannot be found" when opening Group Policy Management console.

    I tried to edit Burflags registry keys, but I could not find Backup/Restore(Which contains Burflags registry) container under Parameters in registry editor.

    Kindly help me with the better solution.

  • Hi,

    Please run the basic tests,


    Check your DNS Servers for stale DC records if any,

    Also from where are you running gpmc -> is it from the DC or a client computer.

    Along with the above results please post ipconfig /all as well.
