cant add child domain to second tree domain in forest

    Question

  • Hi,

    I have two primary domains one.dt and two.dt in the forest. one.dt is the forest root and it has the enterprise admin groups.

    Now i was successfully able to create one child domains for one.dt (child.one.dt) 

    Now, when i try to create a child domain on two.dt, this is where its giving me errors. 

    Steps followed to install child domain on two.dt is: 

    Run dcpromo

    Create a new domain in an existing forest 

    Select Child Domain

    Parent Domain = two.dt

    New Domain Name = childtwo

    Type the name of any domain in the forest where you plan to install this DC -- two.dt given Alternate credentials: one.dt\Admin credentials (credentials for one.dt is given because it is the only one with enterprise admin permissions) 

    And finally I get the error: 

    The operation failed because: Active Directory Domain Services could not create the object CN=childtwo, CN=Partitions CD=Configuration, DC=one, DC=dt. "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.

  • Hi,

    Based on my research and test, the issue will occur if DCs under forest root domain(one.dt) couldn’t resolve name resources under the secondary domain tree(two.dt). To solve the issue, we should create a Stub zone or Conditional forwarder for secondary domain tree(two.dt) on the DC under forest root domain, then prompt the child domain again.
