Credential issue while setting up Additional Aomain Controller RRS feed

  • Dotaz

  • Hi.

    Windows server 2016 (1) has been setup as a forest domain controller. DHCP is also setup at Windows server 2016(1).

    Windows server 2016 (2) installed in the same network.

    Windows server 2016 (2) is getting IP from the forest domain controller.

    The ipconfig of Windows server 2016 (2) says,

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix: forest domain name e.g. xyz.com

    IPv4 Address: from the range defined at DHCP.

    While promoting Windows server 2016 (2) as an Additional Domain Controller, I see error message as

    Before this, it was as

    And

    I was litter bit confused. Which credential should I use here?

    First I used credential of forest domain i.e. Windows Server 2016 (1), then I used credential of Windows Server 2016 (2).

    In both cases, I have seen the same error message.

    Pls guide me to resolve the issue.

    Thank you in advance.

    Regards

  • Are you creating a new domain? or adding a domain controller to existing? From your description is sounds like adding a domain controller, if so then check the radio button selection (top one selected) is correct.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for posting in our forum.

    Do we want to add a new domain to an existing forest or create a new domain control?

    If wen want to add a new domain to an existing forest, please refer to the following article:How to Add a New Domain in Existing Forest in Windows Server 2016 Using Server Manager 

    If we want to add a new domain controller to an existing domain, we should select the first button.

  • Now I am setting up and configuring Additional Domain Controller i.e. store.test16dc1.com (shown in screenshots).

    Then you should be using the top option "Add a domain controller to an existing domain"

  • #DavePatrick and #cynthfan, thank you for reply me for my question.

    Already I setup and configured a domain controller as a Add a new forest.

    In the screenshot you can the name of the domain controller i.e. test16dc1.com.

    Now I am setting up and configuring Additional Domain Controller i.e. store.test16dc1.com (shown in screenshots).

  • Thank you for advising me.

    I selected Add a domain controller to an existing domain.

    And

    Windows Server 2016 (1) which is test16dc1.com and Windows Server 2016 (2) which I have to setup/ configure as an Additional domain controller, both are pinging each other successfully.

    Now I did some changes as

    10.0.0.1 is the IP of test16dc1.com. I added it as Preferred DNS server in Windows Server 2016 (2).

    And I filled credentials at

    as User name: test16dc1.com/Administrator and Password: the password of test16dc1.com.

    Again I see the same issue.

    Pls guide what I need to check more?

    Regards
