Not able to join existing Domian Controller as child domain

By imransh21 ·

I have One windows 2003 standard edition server running as main domain controller with 18 client machines. I have installed one more windows 2003 server to act as exchange server, now i want this exchange server to be child domin of main domain controller, when iam running dcpromo i followed the steps accordingly but iam getting an error

This computer is configured to use DNS servers with following IP addresses:

- One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:
. (the root zone"

This is the error what iam getting. Ip address is my domian controllers IP address.

This IP i have configured as preferred dns for machine which iam trying to make child domian.

Can anyone solve this problem?

there are two issues you need to consider i think:
1st:it is not a good idea running dc and exchange services on the same computer
2nd: try to recreate dns, something wrong with your dns service
