Quickest fix

by clwclark In reply to domain controller install ...

I have heard of this problem from others. I personally have not had this problem, and you shouldn't as long as you enter the resource records in your DNS server. Ofcourse you can run DCPROMO withoud installing DNS first because it will install it for you, but then you get the error you are getting today. :-)

The quickest fix for this problem is to conect your network card to a hub, sounds crazy given the above info, however it works. The proof is in the puding.

Let me know if this fixes your problem.
