I am trying to add an additional domain controller to my existing domain. The Active Directory Install fails with the error: Managing the network session with \servername.domain failed. "The parameter is incorrect." What does this error mean?
Many times this has to do with incompatible characters. For example, there is a version of this problem related to the password containing leading or trailing spaces. That particular problem was solved in Service Pack 3 I believe. You may wish to make sure you are on the most recent service pack before trying again. Other issues are related to invalid characters in the machine name - really the FQDN. Make sure that the DNS suffix for the machine you are trying to add is correct. Lastly, check the DNS server. You will want to make sure that the machine you are adding is connecting to the appropriate DNS server and that the DNS sever has all of the SRV records properly registered. To reset the SRV records for a domain you can run IPCONFIG //REGISTERDNS from the command prompt of a DC.
