SETTING UP ADVANCED SERVER

By meltvn ·
Hi

I am new to Windows Y2K and am setting up a test lab to test advanced server. I installed it as a stand-alone server and promoted it to a domain controller by running DCPROMO. I used all the default settings as far as I know and every thing seemed OK with the installation. But now when I am logging in and trying to ad users to the DC with the Active directory Users and Computers I receive the following message.
? Naming information cannot be located because
Server is not operational
Contact your system administrator to verify that your domain is properly configured and is currently online. ?

The server seems to be running as an DC and DNS is running I am loged in as administrator so am am a bit confused as to where I am going wrong.

Can someone please give me some guidelines or direct me to a site where I can obtain some instructions an Installing and configuring a DC 2000 advanced server

Thanks
Melt

This sounds like a dns issue. Use nslookup on the server and see if you are pointing to yourself. Also try applying the latest service pack. If your DC is multihomed this may be an issue too, I've had similar results in that configuration. Try disabling 1 adapter and reboot.
