Adding Domain Controller

By brian ·
Hi,

I have a Win2K domain with 5 file servers and 2 domain controllers.
Recently somebody attempted to add a 3rd domain controller. Now, every 2 minutes I'm getting and Event ID: 16650. I have read everything I could find on Technet. Nothing there is working.

Also, at one of the existing DC's I'm getting Event ID: 5722.

Basically what I am trying to do is this:
The two existing DC's are used for auth., DNS and DHCP.

I wish to make a new box, which will be a file and print server also, a DC with DHCP and DNS and would like it to replicate with the existing DC's.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Brian

check MS artical Q248410 for Event ID 16650 error.
(As per Microsoft: "This behavior can occur because the RID Master FSMO is unavailable or fails to replicate. The Domain Controller cannot obtain and initialize the RID pool. This behavior can alsooccur when the User Right Access this computer from the network has not been given to the appropriate groups such as Enterprise Domain Controllers or Authenticated Users. )

check artical Q180114,Q150518,Q175024.Q216393,Q1545401 for Event ID 5722.
(The NetLogon service on the PDC logs this error message when the password is not synchronized between the computer and PDC. This is a common problem. When a workstation joins the domain a trust is created with the PDC along with a secured channel password on both machines. This password, by default, automatically changes every seven days. If for some reason the process of password change fails, this error will be generated. One may have to reset the machine account password (can be done with the netdom utility from NT Resource Kit). The password change is initiated by the workstation. This change can be disabled by altering the Registry (DisablePasswordChange on the workstation or RefusePassowrdChange on the server). See Q154501, link below.
This event may also mean that the computer does not have an account in the domain or has been deleted. )

No, you can have 1000 DC's on a network if you have the pockets to afford them. This is indeed a replication problem. I can't find anything exact to help you out, but I would check my replication settings on each server.
