    I am trying to setup 2 pc's. One is the main and two is a
    second dc. The 1st pc is a file server and has been setup
    right with dcpromo. This is the second pc I am on now. I
    want to now connect this sencond pc "dc" to the first pc
    now.

    This second one is a exchange 2000 server. I want to
    connect first to the 1st pc then install and setup the
    exhange 2k part. I can ping the 1st pc form the second pc
    and the 1st pc can ping the 2nd. When I do a dcpromo on
    the 2nd pc and try to connect it gives me this error:
    the domain "main" is not an active directory domain or the
    domain could not be contacted.

    I knw I have set up the 1st pc right but may need some
    suggestions here. On the second pc"dc" I have just
    installed os and done updates I have not configured
    anything for dns. It is setup for dhcp and I have also
    tried manually to enter an IP.

    Please help. :(


    Let me know how to proceed

  2. Yes, right click the NIC and click Properties. And then write the IP of the
    DNS server for the DNS setting.

    A domain controller should have a static ip, and should not recevie one from
    a dhcp-server.

    Ok now both the main"file server" and the 2nd
    server "exchange" have static ip;s. I have to setup the
    dhcp on the main"file server" now. Is there an article on
    this? Is this easy to do?
