    Remote site w/ xp workstation installing thrid dc in sbs
    2003 domain, have dns as a secondary, DHCP on the
    server, when I run dcpromo iget the following error:,

    I've checked and done the following,

    ipconfig /regidterdns "correcetd ip address in dns"
    service packed 4
    joined to domain as member serv "durning first dcpromo

    one thing I noticed is it secondary dns is not upto date
    even when I transfer from master

    The operation failed because: The Directory Service
    failed to create the server object for CN=NTDS
    =local on server SBS.DOAMIN.local. Please ensure
    the network credentials provided have sufficient access
    to add a replica. "Access is denied. "

  2. The clue is in the error message. I have found that when DCPROMO asks for
    the userid, password, and domain it can be fussy. When we did it, the
    credentials box automatically showed domain.local whereupon the DCPROMO
    crashed with errors you describe. Change the domain to the netbios DOMAIN
    and it worked!

    Give that a go and see if you have better luck.
