Create AD Account

Guest

I have two domain controllers in my network. When I try to create a new
account in Active Directory on one of the DC's, I receive an error,"Windows
cannot create the object because: The directory service was unable to
allocate a relative identifier."
Any help would be deeply appreciated.
Thank you.

Sounds like you have RID master problems

Load the support tools. From the install cd d:\support\tools\setup.exe
Load the admin tools d:\i386\adminpak.msi

Open up a command prompt
. dcdiag /v /test:ridmanager
. Make sure no errors with the rid manager

My guess isyou have rid problems.

Come back to the group and list the results
