Sounds likely that DNS is misconfigured.

Dear All 

 

I have 2 domain controller in my organization, and I want to remove the
first domain controller for this and add it later on, 

What I did I transfer the 5 FSMO roles from the first to the seconded
domain controller and also I made the 2nd domain controller as GC, I
remove it from the first one. In the same I did for also DNS. 

I try to dcpromo down the first domain controller I am getting this
error 

 

The Operation Failed because :

A domain controller could not be contacted for the domain abc.com that
contained an account for this computer. 

Make the computer a member of a workgroup then rejoin the domain before
retrying the promotion.

" the specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted."

 

 

Any Help will be appreciated 

 

Regards 

Qusai
