Installing Active Directory

By davisins ·
"Active Directory Installation Failed. File Replication Service: The system cannot find the file specified. This is the message I get when attempting to install Active Directory through the Active Directory Installation Wizard. This is frustrating because I need to run a domain controller for the Win 2000 Server network. Please respond ASAP.

Thanks

Hello:

Try disconnecting the cable from the Network card (just before hitting ok to start the install, and reconnecting it once the installation has started; especially if you are connected to the net via this server.

I've had numerous problems with installing AD, and this seems to do the trick. Hope this works for you.

Make sure ur hub is powered up and connected to your network card before you run dcpromo.exe
Ping 127.0.0.1 to verify the tcp/ip stack and or another pc on ur network.
Check you network card in device manager.
Assign a static ip to the server.
