    Domain Controller cannot find itself

    I am here trying to migrate my domain from one serve to other. Here the DC is unable to find the new domain while the clients are able to access it. This is a bit weird. The DNS is working fine here. It is configured properly with all records. The DC here points to its own IP. I had also checked DCDIAG. There is no error in it. But still I am unable to find cause behind this.

    What is your migration procedure. I think the issue lies with that. You will need to check the process properly and I think you are missing something there. Did you tried running GPUpdate. Run that and check back what you find. You can test for again by running DCDiag. Run that and see what you find. It is weird that you find no errors in the same.

    Same Problem

    I have the same problem. Thus far, I have no idea what is going on, so I am afraid I cannot be of much help, but I was curious as to what version of windows you are using.

    Currently we have 3 DCs running and only one of them is showing these errors. The one with the errors is Win 2k3 Standard R2 with SP2 (**EDIT** This is an x64 edition **EDIT**), the other two are Win 2k3 with SP1 (**EDIT** These are 32-bit versions **EDIT**)(off the top of my head, i believe one is enterprise and one is standard).

    I am wondering if this could be a problem with either R2 or SP2 (**EDIT** or x64 problem **EDIT**)?

    Solution (or at least explanation)

    I haven't quite figured out what the problem is, however here is a link to a forum where the problem is supposedly solved. (Well, maybe. I can't speak French, and the google translation is buggy.) If you can figure out what they are talking about, best of luck and please post.

    It appears to me that they are saying that it is something related to x64 and that it has something to do with renaming the domain (which I did not do).

    Here are the links:




    I found another forum with similar issues:
    I found that I had the same problem. I had installed the support tools from Microsoft's website, rather than from the cd. When I reinstalled the tools using the package on the cd, the netdiag errors went away. However, I was not having the application log errors that you were having, so I have no suggestion for that.
