Additional Domain Controllers

By Jas03 ·
I'm trying to set up a Windows 2003 server (standard ed.) as an additional domain controller. The primary domain controller is running windows NT 4 with the latest service pack.
When I try to add active directory in my win2k3 server it asks me the domain. when I click next it tells me that there is a DNS error and it cannot find the domain. I can log into the domain just fine but it wont find it when I'm trying to add the additional domain (or backup domain).
Has anyone done this before? I'm pretty new at this and need lots of help.
Thanks in advance

You can't add windows 2003 as an additional domain controller to an NT network.

In Active Directory there is no such thing as a backup domain controller.

You can either upgrade your NT server to 2003, or, create a new domain with 2003 and migrate all your users and files over to the new server

When you are installing Active Directory it gives you the option to "Add Additional Domain Controller for existing domain" Isn't that what I need?
