    Are you running dcpromo on an actual domain controller for said domain?
    Have you checked your DNS settings for this machine? DNS server
    records? (Pay particular attention to Service Location (SRV) records.)
    Do you have a working DNS server with the appropriate capabilities?

    You also may have a failure or connectivity problem to the Domain Naming
    master role. Open Active Directory Domains and Trusts, right-click on
    Active Directory Domains and Trusts in the console tree and click
    Operations Master. You can view and change the server responsible for
    this role here.
