The Domain Either does not exist or could not be contacted

  1. hi,
    We created a Domain Controller called "TEST". The hierachy
    from it's root would be as: "". TEST Domain
    is a domain controller which, resides in a Server Computer
    Called "JUPITERSVR"(Which is the server Name. Windows 2000
    server installed). Also there's another server
    called "LOTUS" which we decided to install the Exchange
    Server. We Created an Additional Domain Controller for
    the "TEST" domain in the "LOTUS" Server. There was no
    problem in that. But When we try to run the Forestprep for
    Exchange 2000, the "LOTUS" server did give a error
    called "The Domain either does not exist or could not be
    contacted". We have already created a Forward Lookup Zone
    in the JUPITERSVR's DNS Manager.

    This is most likely a DNS issue. In your domain FLZ do you have the correct
    SOA, NS and A records?

    Also run a dcdiag /v and netdiag /v on all DC's to check for any obvious
