make sure the member server is configured as a DNS
client since AD relies on DNS. Or preferable u can
install DNS service on it.
Then can u ping the DC from the member server? Try all
these and let me know what happens.
Are u tring to install an additional DC.

I am trying to install the additional server that will be a replacement for the DC.
I have done the 1st part . The problem was that the additional server had an entry in the network
setup for the suffix of the server which was the domain name of the old DC. I removed
it and the process was smooth with no problems. Now,I need to use the additional server
as the primary DC and remove the old one.
Mark explained that I can run DCPROMO on the old server and make it stand alone
to do that. I hope that works without problems or else I will lose both servers.
So,Mark shall I proceed with this ? no risk at all ?
By the way,the old server has E2k installed.
