Hello Robert,

Does the server come up at the end and are you able to logon? If not use
Last known safe mode booting and check the event logs for errors. Also it
is not a good idea to interrupt an installation, shutdown a server and go
on the next day.

Best regards

Hello Meinolf,

I waited for almost 1 hour to get the "Welcome in Windows" dialog with the
Ctrl+Alt+Del prompt.
Then I waited another hour to get my desktop on this server.
I have access to almost everything on the server, but the network is
completely out of reach.
In the Event Viewer I have some errors about the DNS and about the Active
Directory, but these errors were already there before the problem occurred
(I'm waiting for an expert to correct these errors).
Do you have any idea of what I can do now?
Thanks for your help

Robert

Hello Robert,

Well, long boot times and logons can rely on DNS problems. So please post
the event viewer errors here and describe more detailed your domain, amount
of DCs, sites etc. An unedited ipconfig /all can help to exclude DNS problems.

Additional i suggest you run the support tools dcdiag /v, netdiag /v and
repadmin /showrepl (if more then one DC exists).

Keep in mind that a DC should only do its basic job, AD/DNS/GC maybe DHCP.
Applications, especially SQL and Exchange, should run on dedicated member
servers not on domain controllers.

Best regards

Hello Meinolf,

I have only one DC (the server Win Server 2003 with the problem) on my small
network (only 5 workstations).
I have an ADSL connection via a "Freebox" (box of a French FAI) the IP of
which is 192.168.55.1
The fixed IP of my server is 192.168.55.2
I used itself as a "Prefered DNS Server". I'm afraid I was wrong with that.
I think I would have to take the IP of my FAI's DNS : 212.27.40.240
But now I cannot change that because I don' t have access to any network
connection.
I ran a NetDiag (see the attached file) and an IPCONFIG but the Windows
support tools was not able to instal.
Thanks for your help

Robert

Hello Robert,

The ipconfig /all is ok that way. Do NOT change the DNS ip address to the ISPs DNS server on the NIC.

On the DNS server make sure DNS service is started and set to automatic and also the DHCP client service is started and set to automatic. Even if not used the DHCP client service is needed for DNS registration.

Additional post your DNS zone name, your name in AD UC and the NEtBios name you are using.

For the event 4004 check this ones:
